Flow My Tears, this is how I felt after completing this novel. The book was dry, and boring. It was a complete failure compared to Dicks other works. The characters were barely described and the plot was resolved all too quickly in the end.

Excellent condition.
One of PKD's more interesting books that explores, yet again, the plasticity of reality.

I find PKD's ideas fascinating, thought-provoking, "far-out," you-name-it. He was clearly a cutting edge thinker. However, his writing here is so god-aweful, I could not summon the will power to slog through this book. The exposition was so heavy-handed and the dialogue so cheesy I had to stop. When he wrote of a Rolls Royce skyflyer(a rocket of some sort, apparently) that its engine "idled throbbingly," I nearly flung the book (frustratedly?) across the room. I then picked up VALIS. So far, much better. I'm looking for a pun involving "Dick" and "throbbingly" but my kid is crying for dada. Help anyone?

That is the only part of the book that I did not like. My favorite, as with all PKD books, are the characters themselves.
The characters are so deep I felt like I knew them. As in real life good characters do bad things and visa-versa, unlike some authors who manage to pigen whole their characters into pure good or evil. They only want to be themselves even if they aren't sure of who that is.
If you like to contemplate a book after finishing it, then this is a book for you.
If your stupid, Amazon has a wide variety of Riddick inspired merchandise for you.
