the three stigmata of palmer eldritch

the three stigmata of palmer eldritch

This is the first philp k dick book I’ve read. And confidently i can confirm, probably the last. So why am I reviewing it? hmmm….

Well it wasn’t a bad book! I just think it felt old. Well no shit, it is an old book, so i guess that can be forgiven. I just don’t think that it ports as well as say Asimov does to this day and age.

The story revolves around the question of what is reality and time, and our relationships with god and religion. there’s plenty of time hopping, hallucinations and  retrospection. The characters in the book are never sure of who they are, where they are and what they are doing!

It’s funny in parts, but I do think that it could have been written better. Dick’s style of writing often had me confused. And its inspiring, I would like to write something like this myself me thinks.

Well I’m not going to review the story, that would just spoil it for would be readers. What I do want to say is, I hope that I haven’t put you off reading the book…
