    One thought on “Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?”

    1. I could say that I love Dick, but that would be weird. I do very much enjoy Philip K. Dick's writing and though this is not one of his best, the "Pizza and Sex Rule" applies to him; ie. just as even bad pizza and / or sex is still pretty good, bad PKD is as well. And this is not bad at all. The first mistake that a new reader would make is to watch Blade Runner and expect a novelization of that film; it was LOOSELY based upon the book. I'm a big fan of the Ridley Scott film starring Harrison For [...]

    2. It takes five full pages for a character to buy a goat and ONE FRIGGIN' SENTENCE for a character to "fall in love". This book was so amazing in the beginningd then suddenly everything plummeted downhill. It was almost as if Dick got 150 pages in and then said "awwww screw ituh, sentence, sentence, sentence, THE END!" Why did there need to be any sort of "love" storyline anyway? Along with being the only geek who made it through puberty without reading Phillip K. Dick books, I also am one of the [...]

    3. I Love Dick. There I've said it. No, not a “Mood Organ” or blood filled skin sack made to facilitate reproduction but Philip K. Dick. Is it really possible for androids to acquire human traits like empathy and the desire to understand the meaning of life and avoid death at all costs? What would the role of socialism play in an android world? Would self aware androids seek out to destroy anything that threatened their existence or tried to control their thoughts (ie programming)?A Google sear [...]

    4. An android walks into a bar."Hey!", the bartender says, "Only people with feelings are allowed in here! You need empathy in order to be in a joke like this, or at least have something people can relate to.""Oh, don't worry", the android replies, "I definitely feel empathy."Relieved, the bartender invites him over to the bar. "What are you having?""A beer would be great!", the android replies. The bartender, evidently approving of this fine choice, gladly obliges and goes on to cater for the othe [...]

    5. “It's the basic condition of life to be required to violate our own identity.”― Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?Having hooked up all the iridescent wires from my XC-23 Weird and Crazy in Fiction Test Machine to Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, I’m here to report results showed the needle registering a maximum ten out of ten on each and every page. Quite a feat. Quite a novel. But then again, maybe we shouldn’t be so surprised - after all, this is Philip K. Dick [...]

    6. Raise your hand if you saw my name next to a five star rating and thought you were dreaming. Dreaming of electric sheep. Boom. Ohhhhhhhhhhh baby. How have I not read this until now? Why haven’t I seen Blade Runner before? Why?! Why?! WhyyyyyyyyyyyEverything about this book is just, just, so just so everything about this book, man, this book, it’s just so it is. This book. Awesome. This book is awesome. Words I’m trying to eliminate from my vocabulary: man, awesome, cool, legit, nice, word. [...]

    7. Ειλικρινά με το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο δεν μπόρεσα να συνδεθώ σε κάποιο ουσιαστικό επίπεδο. Ίσως να είμαι κι εγώ ένα ανθρωποειδές εξελιγμένο μεν αλλά μέχρι ενός σημείου, καθώς δεν κατάφερα να νιώσω ενσυναίσθηση για τους ανθρώπους και τα ζώα που αναφέρονται στην ιστορία. Δεν μ [...]

Treasure of the Rubbermaids 20: Failing the Voight-Kampff TestThe on-going discoveries of priceless books and comics found in a stack of Rubbermaid containers previously stored and forgotten at my parent’s house and untouched for almost 20 years. Thanks to my father dumping them back on me, I now spend my spare time unearthing lost treasures from their plastic depths.In the spirit of Phillip K. Dick‘s questioning of reality and identity, it’s fitting that there are two versions of this sto [...]

    9. HA! What a surprise!If you've seen the 1982 Blade Runner movie, you already know Deckard is a bounty hunters for law enforcementd has a license to kill rogue androids aka replicants ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP was the inspiration for the old movie as well as Blade Runner 2049 in theatre's now and is the same in some respects, but without the intensity and violence. It kind of has a strange calmness to it. like you've taken a mood enhancer, and there's a whole other plot going on. Very bizar [...]

    10. It's hard to know where to start with this book. On the one hand, I want to say it was amazing and highly original and extremely thought-provoking. On the other I want to say it was often confused, contradictory and obscure. Well, I guess I just did :)After wars and then radioactive dust obliterated much of the planet, the majority of the human population fled to colonies on Mars and elsewhere, taking their own personal android servant. Some stayed behind, either because they had been contaminat [...]

    11. Probably my favourite Philip K. Dick book, ' favourite too by the look of it. As you are probably aware the classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner is based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Great as the movie is when I first saw it I was very disappointed as it bears very little resemblance to this book. The filmmakers jettisoned most of what makes this book so special and focused only on the android hunting aspect though at least it does explore the moral issues involved. The movie’s visual [...]

    12. Maybe a 2.5? I don't know Honestly, I don't really know how I feel about this book at all. All I know is that I was underwhelmed.I think it just wasn't the right time for me to read this. Maybe in a few years I'll give it another go, because I liked the concept.

    13. Very interesting story on which the epic film Blade Runner was based. The ideas are certainly original and I'd imagine that Ghost in the Shell was at least partially inspired by the ideas. I just felt the character development was rather shallow and the action somewhat predictable even if I was impatient to push on to see what would happen next. Well, I'll try a few more PKD stories, but perhaps it just isn't my style - sort of inventive like Isaac Asimov but trying to be trashy like Elmore Leon [...]

    14. Rick Deckard, is a bounty hunter for the San Francisco police, the year 2021 ( January 3rd). His mission is to "retire" six androids, who fled bleak Mars and illegally came to Earth. World War Terminus has depopulated our world, radioactive fallout called "dust", continues coming down and slowly killing the survivors, who have moved to cities. Making many of the people still living, chickenheads, excuse me, special. Animals are virtually extinct, electronic duplicates are in great demand, real o [...]

    15. I'm worried that most people will misunderstand the intelligence behind this book. I have met a few people who have said, "that book? I read that in high school." My response is "did you understand this book in high school?"Am I wrong in saying that first, one should read Kafka; second, one should understand how Kafka's fiction functions as a blend of anthropology, theology, and philosophy, among other things. Then, read Phillip K. Dick again, and notice the themes of paranoia, identity crisis, [...]

    16. the k. in philip K. dick definitely stands for kicked ass. but not philip kick ass dick. i dont know what that means.

    17. "You will be required to do wrong no matter where you go. It is the basic condition of life, to be required to violate your own identity."Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is a science fiction masterpiece by Philip K. Dick (PKD) that also served as the inspiration for the movie Blade Runner. It was first published in 1968.The story is about Rick Deckard, an android killer. He works for the police in San Francisco, where the deadly radioactive dust from World War Terminus still covers the city [...]

    18. I've been saying for years that this book is boring. But it's more than that, it's not excusable in the way that a purely boring book can be. Instead, it's a tremendous idea told badly. It seems that when Dick wrote this he didn't have a good grasp on translating his big ideas into an engrossing--or even active story. It's not that there's no movement in the story. Things happen, but even when they do, even in the throes of the final confrontation, when Deckard is retiring three andys in one aba [...]

    19. Since "Blade Runner" has been one of my favorite movies my entire adult life, it's odd I never read this until now. I expected it to be pretty different from the film, but still, it's not like I don't read SF by the metric ton anyway. I think I just never happened across a copy until recently.If you've read a lot of SF from the 60s and 70s, you'd know this was written in the late 60s by the end of the first chapter. It has the smell of that period all over it - everyone "official" in any way has [...]

    20. “Life which we can no longer distinguish; life carefully buried up to its forehead in the carcass of a dead world.” ― Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?Top shelf Philip K Dick exploring a tangled web of heavy themes like: what it means to be human, the nature and limits of empathy, love, religion, God, entropy, animals, decay. I had mistakenly put off this novel because HELL I already saw the movie. How can you improve upon THAT movie? Well, the book is better. A cliché, [...]

    21. 390. Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep? (Blade Runner #1), Philip K. DickDo Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (retitled Blade Runner: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? in some later printings) is a science fiction novel by American writer Philip K. Dick, first published in 1968. The novel is set in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco, where Earth's life has been greatly damaged by nuclear global war. Most animal species are endangered or extinct from extreme radiation poisoning, so that owning [...]

    22. This is the book Blade Runner was based on. Which is why I decided to read it. You might think this was a bad idea on my part. You might be right.This novel is a cult classic. You're supposed to love cult classics right? Right. Well guess what? Not only did I not love this book, it pretty much bored me to death, too. Yay.Don't get me wrong, this book is somewhat brilliant. Well, okay, if it had actually been brilliant I'd obviously have given it a 4-star rating. So let's just say this book is po [...]

    23. - You’re surely not suggesting that I could be an android?- Well, let’s look at the evidence. You have no empathy whatsoever….- What? Where is your evidence for this outrageous statement?- Protest all you like, but you can ask anybody. You’re notorious. You’re an empathy free zone. - Wait, I think it’s clear what’s happening here. You are in fact the android, and you have had a false memory implanted into you to make you think you are human.- Not so, you have had a false memory pla [...]

    24. “This is insane.”“This is necessary.”Another classic that has taken me much too long to get around to.And what a shame, since this is a really good book.“Is it true, Mr. Deckard, that you’re a bounty hunter?”I won’t go into a lot of detail regarding the differences between the Blade Runner film and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, although there are some fundamental deviations, especially as far as the conclusion of the story is concerned. I will say this: the novel explains [...]

    25. "I thought as much, sir, when you mentioned rabbits. The thing about rabbits, sir, is that everybody has one. I'd like to see you step up to the goat-class where I feel you belong. Frankly you look more like a goat man to me." (p133)This is a book set in the far distant future of 2020. Colonies have been established on distant plants, regular space traffic is a matter of fact, as are robots that look identical to humans - even when violently blown apart, at the same time the idea that women migh [...]

    26. I love Blade Runner—and so it is with pleasure, and a sense of completion, that I am now able to state (almost) the same for its source material. The parenthesized qualifier admits to the differing status of the two: whereas BR is an absolute classic, one that declared itself boldly, influencing the design and feel and look of all subsequent dystopian cinematic fare, a movie cast to perfection and narrowing its gaze to the more umbrageous and feral of Dick's thematic threads, the book casts a [...]

    27. 'Everything is true,' he said. 'Everything anybody has ever thought.''Will you be all right?''I'll be all right,' he said, and thought, And I'm going to die. Both those are true, too.My first read book of 2017, and definitely a new favorite of mine. I've been meaning to read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? for a really long period of time, and I'm so happy that I finally managed to read it, because it exceeded my every single expectation. What more can I say, except that this is one of thos [...]

    28. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep: Nothing like Blade Runner, but both are brilliantOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureRidley Scott’s 1982 film Blade Runner was arguably the most brilliant, though-provoking, and intelligent SF film ever made, with a uniquely dark vision of a deteriorated future Earth society and a morally ambiguous tale of a bounty hunter Rick Deckard hunting down and ‘retiring’ a series of very intelligent Nexus-6 type replicants (androids) that want very much to li [...]

    29. Have you ever wondered how we are living in a world where people are becoming more and more mechanical while machines are being turned into more and more human like? I mean look at it, on one hand we have people to whom, mobiles have become as important for lungs. They can’t imagine their lives without them – they set alarms on mobiles to determine when to wake wake up, they carry the thing in their poackets (in their hands at times when it is one of those large smart phones and their pocket [...]

    30. Insane, ingenious and heartbreaking. Once again I am in awe of this writer. And it's amazing to me to discover just how much science fiction and philosophy really have in common. Because in this book as well as others of a similar kind the questions of our existence are raised. And in that sense even religion comes in play. The more I read on these topics the harder it becomes for me to distinguish the line that separates them. But then I guess that's to be expected. After all they are all man m [...]
