Do androids dream of electric sheep?

    Excellent book - odd I hadn't read it before really. It's made me want to watch Blade Runner again to work out how different the film and the book are. My impression from reading this and comparing it to my memories of a film I last watch 5 or 6 years ago are that they are very different. It's also made me think I should read more by Philip K Dick - a very good writer indeed and I've enjoyed the other books I've read of his.

      Fine book indeed. The film is very different, yes, much less about schizophrenia and with a couple of themes missing or much less prominent, though the question about where you can draw the line between human and non-human is definitely still there.

      EDIT - taken me four months to notice I typed gibberish

      Philip K Dick is an excellent author. I am reading 'Do Androids...' currently, and just finished 'A Scanner Darkly' - which is my new favorite :)

      Are you enjoying Do Androids...? I haven't read A Scanner Darkly - will have to get hold of it, as I really did enjoy this one.
