      At least games of thrones gives you a reason to like both the protagonists and antagonists, this one only does that for the latter.

      Why would an intellectual light-weight even attempt to read a book like this? And then you start a dumber and dumber thread with such posts coming from and

      Philip K. Dick is Borges for midwits.

      making it even dumber. Clearly the book went over your pin head like a whistle in the dark.
      Please stay in your containment threads and STFU!!!!

    Its kind of funny that Philip K. Dick came up with this premise. Any other writer would have written something more within expectations, but instead you get a true K. Dick novel.
    A good book true but not what you expected from the premise.

        Then read VALIS afterwards. Ubik is also good.

          Excited to read VALIS. I’ve been putting it off because I wanted to read a few more of his novels first. I’ve read about 5 or 6 now. In the middle of Flow My Years then reading Man in the High Castle then I’ll finally do VALIS. With a few shorts sprinkled throughout.

            I posted this and then found the Library of America collection with the whole VALIS trilogy in a used book store. The pink light guided me.

    Correct. Decent enough premise, and he's good at writing beleaguered little men protagonists, but it's a confused mess with a terrible non-ending.

    He talked about using the I Ching to plot it, and I believe him.

    Yeah, it really was. Turned me off of Dick. He really doesn't belong in the canon of sci-fi greats. He sort of belongs in the Neal Stephenson or KS Robinson category of bad writers with high concepts.

    I had Valis all ready to go, but I didn't feel like getting a headache again. Instead I read Watts' Rifters series which was highly rewarding.

    Is the book better than the show? They went full woke with the last season

    >Communist n-words refuses to hoist the American flag after the Japanese defeat in the East coast
    >Preachy negress saying the country has never done anything good for them
    >Stronk karate female character kills trained secret agent easily
    >A bunch of garden gnomes get gassed. they did wrong stuff but we're supposed to gloss over that.

    How does the book end? The show just ends with a portal opening up to other dimensions and for some reason people are entering theirs. People that have no existing clone in their universe.

      The show went full retard in season 3 because the producers fleshed out the "villains" better, so people started to empathize with the nazis more.
      Jules was a retarded that constantly endangered everyone, in very first episode she leaves and that ends up killing her husband's sister and nephew, only to endager herself and Joe. The resistance was literally semites who constantly whined and whose only traits were being semites in a "evil nazi world".
      Meanwhile the trade minister was busy preventing a war by maneuvering a spy, John Smith was busy dealing with his son's disease and trying to find out who set him up and when the chief police discovers who tried to kill the prince, he was willing to sodoku in order to prevent a war.

        I like the dirty police chief and the cryptogarden gnome antique seller but god damn what a waste.

        I hope the book is better.
