It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war -- and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

I have some mixed feelings about this book. I feel comfortable giving this 4 stars because I found ideas in it to be quite interesting but it is probably closer to a 3.5-star book. In many ways, this book is all about the ideas presented and lacks much actual plot so if you prefer plot-driven books this is almost certainly not the book for you. I definitely liked the parts spent with Juliana Frink the most. I just thought she was by far the most interesting character with the most interesting backstory. I liked the ways that we saw the world had changed but in many ways I wanted more of those small details to show us just how different this world is. In the near future, I will probably be reading [b:Farthing|183740|Farthing (Small Change, #1)|Jo Walton|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1442714837s/183740.jpg|1884104] by [a:Jo Walton|107170|Jo Walton|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1353809579p2/107170.jpg] which is a book set in a similar idea of Nazis having won WWII but I believe it is more of a mystery so I will be interested to see how that compares and which one I end of liking more. Overall I would maybe recommend this to people who really like alternate history but I wanted just a bit more out of this. I do still want to read some of the author's other work and see if I like that. ( )

A second miss for me from Philip K Dick.

The story culminated in some incredible ideas, but 90% of the book was expository for the sake of the ending... and it's an ending that requires some work (or some Googling) to understand even after you've turned the final page.

Dick is no doubt a talented writer, philosophical thinker, and a pioneer of the alternate history genre. But the prose style feels more like a literary exercise - choppy sentences packaging a political narrative - than a joy for the sake of reading.

Generally I have no problems with the multiple narrators style, jumping back and forth between characters. But there was so little holding them together. I had hoped that their stories would converge, but they did not do so to any satisfactory degree, leaving several characters feeling entirely extraneous. I'd have preferred each character's story to be written in succession starting with Childan, then Frank, then Wegener, followed by Tagomi and his transcendental experience, then Juliana Frink as the unexpected protagonist (/saviour/enlightener/whatever you might call her), which would have correctly set the expectation that they were almost entirely without overlap.

There was not nearly enough foreshadowing for the ending. I had to backtrack a couple of times to work out whether I'd missed something in the text. Maybe I did, but I'm most certainly not going to read this a second time to squeeze the value out of it. ( )

What a weird beautiful little book. I don't think I understood all of it but maybe that's part of the point. The recursive aspects were truly inspired. I didn't love it as much as Androids but I'm looking forward to the TV series and more of his short stories. ( )

This was my second read through of the book now that I've had a chance to watch the Amazon series. Philip K. Dick is/was the man and we should all hail him. I noted something at the end when we meet the character Abendsen. He is perhaps the stand-in for P.K. Dick and all fiction writers. Are we fiction writers or do we just stenographers for the Oracle and alternate realities? I thought that was sort of meta to have this writer writing an alternate history within a book which is an alternate history for us. It can make your head spin a bit.

I was also glad I read this because it is in many ways different from the television series. It used to bother me when a screenplay veered far from a book I loved. Maybe now that I'm older and I love cover songs and different interpretations I feel a bit differently about reimaginings. NiN's Hurt sung by Johnny Cash or David Bowie as an example. I would like to create an entire playlist of covers of the Rolling Stone's Sympathy for the Devil. I watch every single Pride & Prejudice and Jane Austen remakes as much as any new retelling and costuming of Shakespeare. This book is very different from the series but they each stand on their own. There are some similarities in a few characters and vast differences...one being that the focus here is a book and in the series it is pieces of film.

Funny thing I had forgotten that after I read this book a few years back I actually purchased a book on I Ching. Many of the characters in the novel are addicted to I Ching. It gave me a creepy feeling because I remembered that feeling of wanting to ask the I Ching about everything of uncertainty in my life at that time which I had completely forgotten. ( )

The book read well as it progressed, but I was disappointed by the climax and resolution. It felt less impactful than it should have been. The stories didn't tie together as closely as I'd wanted, and the overall message didn't land for me.

I'm surprised to be enjoying the Amazon TV series more than the book. ( )

Dick is entertaining us about reality and madness, time and death, sin and salvation.... We have our own homegrown Borges.

Philip K. Dick... has chosen to handle... material too nutty to accept, too admonitory to forget, too haunting to abandon.

They know a million tricks, those novelists...Appeals to the base lusts that hide in everyone no matter how respectable on the surface. Yes, the novelist knows humanity how worthless they are, ruled by their testicles, swayed by cowardice, selling out every cause because of their greed...all he's got to do is thump on the drum, and there's the response. And he laughing of course, behind his hand at the effect he gets. (p. 128)
At six-fifteen in the evening she finished the book. I wonder if Joe got to the end of it? she wondered. There's so much more in it than he understood. What is it Abendsen wanted to say? Nothing about his make-believe world. Am I the only one who knows? I'll bet I am; nobody else really understands Grasshopper but me - they just imagine they do.
