Customer reviews

By T.Eveleigh 22 Jan 2012 5

One of the greatest SF novels of the 20th century. Dick takes us on a journey through the deepest, darkest aspects of the human soul with a funny, fast-paced plot set on post-apocolyptic Earth. This is one to certainly make you question what it is to be human.
