Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Dystopia, Novel by Philip K. Dick

Blurb

By 2021, the Terminus War had driven mankind off-planet and entire species into extinction. Now only the rich can afford living creatures; others may buy amazingly realistic simulacrae: horses, cats, sheep... Even humans. These artificial people are so advanced it's impossible to tell them from true men and women--except for their lack of empathy. Without empathy, androids can--and do--kill their owners and blend into society, so they're illegal on Earth. It's Rick Deckard's job to find these rogues and "retire" them. But "andys" tend to fight back--with deadly results.

Angenehm dystopische Story, aber in der Tat stellenweise etwas unverständlich. Inhaltlich weicht der Film ziemlich ab, insofern hat es nicht geschadet, die Filme bereits zu kennen.

Better than the movie, but still does not live upto the potential of the idea.

Nette Grundidee, dann leider zu naiv und teilweise unverständlich.
