it was ok
Recommended for: People on busses.

... Dick can do better. While Valis was an incredible novel that fully explored Dick's enlightenment/mental collapse via a lifelong addiction to uppers and his views of the divine, electronic music and pink lasers, this book seems to be more os a scifi thriller that really fails to go anywhere, despite the fact that it's set on both intergalactic exploration outposts, as well as parts of NY and LA. The climax was weak, the whole concept of the divine as an illegal "alien" being aided by the physical embodiment of pagan gods in a fight against a demonic baby goat that somehow ties into the legacy as a sequel to a book as chilling as Valis... uhm, yah. Like I said, I love me some Dick (he said dick, huhhuh), PKD has numerous other works that far surpass this particular little number.

Charles You made me curious about the trilogy. Ok then. I'll read Valis next. Deeper than TDI and so it's of interest to me.
