Although I’m a big Phillip Dick fan I have yet to read this trilogy (it’s on my to-do-list, promise ). I know some consider it his greatest work so I was looking forward to it.
One of my friends, who was also a big ‘Dickhead’, recently read this story and reacted in a rather… unusual way. Bob read the first two books of the trilogy and swore off Dick forever. He said he would never read another story from Dick again. The only reason Bob would give me is the story was a basic outline of HIS life. WTF?
Could someone tell me more about this saga? I’m kinda reluctant to read this now since my friend and I think somewhat similarly. I like Dick and I want to encourage people to read him. I was also interested in what other people thought of these three books.
If you believe my friend is crazy could you tell me what parts in the books would make you think that?
PS I don’t care about spoilers but you might want to box them for any dopers who haven’t read the story yet…
