Of the 4 stories in this collection, I read only “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”. I’ve been told by most people I work with that PKD is someone I ought to read (and have been hearing this from various people for years), so I finally bit the bullet and gave him a try. Sci-fi is very far from my favorite genre, and dystopian post-apocalyptic sci-fi is really not something I like at all. So it took me a long time to warm up to this story. Surprisingly, though, the more I read the more I liked, so by the end I was almost drawn in to the story. Almost.

Anyway, nothing about this novel puts me at risk of becoming a PKD addict, though I guess I’ll eventually get around to reading a bit more PKD. Someday. Maybe.
