Martian Time-Slip by Philip K. Dick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’m ashamed to say that I’ve never read any Phillip K. Dick before. It isn’t that I’ve avoided him, although minority report the film didn’t make me think I needed to run out and get hold of his work. However having read this book I’m looking forward to the next Phillip K. Dick book I purchase.
Some of the themes within the book are odd (the autism/schizophrenia angle feels odd) and some of the technology harks back to an earlier age. Having said that there’s a coherence to the choies made that doesn’t impede the book. The cast of characters is believable and the interplay is coherent. The overall plot rollocks along and the feeling I didn’t see the end coming until quite late in the piece. The finale also neatly tied up the plot lines, which is something I prefer.
All-in-all pick this book up and acknowledge it was written in the sixties. After that enjoy the book :)
