Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Philip K. Dick
Fantasy & Science Fiction
Aug 1, 2018
As the basis for the first and best adaptation of a Dick novel to film (Ridley Scott’s 1982 Blade Runner), this book occupies a central place in the PKD oeuvre. But its virtues and affect are different from the cinematic interpretation, more in line with Dick’s core preoccupations. All told, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is a vital excursion into imaginatively uncanny territory that seems more eerily prescient with each passing year.

I read this long before Blade Runner came out, and I'd also read UBIK by that time, and several other of his short SF stories. The man was, like some kind of latter day Nostrodomus, a predictive genius, which is wonderful and creepy at the same time.

This novel challenges what it is to be human, and shows how we should extend our empathy to all.

A book that shows what we should not turn our society into.
