Read this week – Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

I read this novel by Phillip K. Dick many years ago but having forgotten much of it, I cracked it open (in the digital sense). A fantastic, fun, read, as it was the first time.

The novel, the basis for the film Blade Runner, on the surface is about a bounty hunter hunting androids but like a lot of Phillip K. Dick’s work, it really delves into issues of reality, humanity, and the manipulation of people. I think being older now I appreciated the story more and some stuff I had completely forgotten about, including the whole bizarre religion aspect which I thought well done though it resembled the world’s most mundane massively multi-player game.

Definitely recommended.
