really liked it

So this inspired "Blade Runner," huh? I used to think that was a good movie but as usually happens when you eventually read the book that inspired the movie, the movie falls apart. So much more could have been done with BR to make it similar to the book, but what the hey, Dick was dead by the time they did the movie, wasn't he? If not, maybe that was what gave him the stroke (No offense Phil, you're awesome!).

Loved this book but I was a hair disappointed with the ending. I love open/interpret it as you will type endings, but I'm struggling to pick out my final theme for this book as there are several commentaries you could go with. I like the androids suck theme the best, so I'm going with that.

If you love Blade Runner, skip this book. As for me, I'm going hunting for more Dick books. Perhaps the Man in the High Castle. That sounds intriguing.
