    Twisted, twisted...boy you can really tell Dick abused drugs but a great book. I had to re-read it once I finished it. I found it a realistic dystopia.

    This is Dick's most famous, due to the film, but in my opinion, not him at his finest. I would recommend reading his short stories. It's amazing how he can conjure such powerful scenes and characters in a single paragraph.
