Is Deckard an android An android he said doesn t care what happens to another android That s one of the indications we look forThen Miss Luft said you must be an androidThat stopped him he stared at herThis is all I could think about when reading I really looked for evidence to back the idea up though the novel only provided me with speculation and partial facts For every little suggestion in the text that he is a robot there is an effective counter argument Somehow though I am not entirely convinced Maybe there was once a human who looked like you and somewhere along the line you killed him and took his place And your superiors don t know I think Phillip K Dick left it purposefully open to an extent and that s the entire point of the novelWhat is life How do we define it and what separates us from entities that simulate almost every human experience and emotion Very little Phillip K Dick creates a city full of doubt and conspiracy Androids could be anywhere and they could be anyone As technology advances it becomes harder and harder for them to be detected by police They even think they are human with a will and freedom to choose their own lives Who has the right to tell them noDeckard pushes such thoughts to the back of his mind though they constantly plague him and creep up in the shadows of his dreams He is on the cusp of a moral crisis an identity crisis a crisis that may change the way he sees the world Though like most people he is driven by money Killing murdering androids pays really well and Deckard wants a new animal His electric sheep died and he dreams of replacing it with an exceedingly rare real life version something far important than preoccupations with empathy The value of animals and the natural world to the human psyche is firmly established throughout the book There is an almost depressive uality to the novel a smoky haze that clouds the cities The scientific boom of the future world has severed the link between man and his true self He is detached and has to rely on artificiality to get by an artificiality of emotions and animals themselves Animals have become rare and extremely costly They are highly sought after and as such there is a huge market for fake animals androids electric sheep Thus Deckard kills and robots in order to attain his goal of getting an animal of finding himselfThis is a great novel one that uestions existence itself It certainly made me think Admittedly though I think the movie Blade Runner was so much better Aside from the exuisite cinematography and soundtrack it was far effective at delivering the humanity of the androids and the final confrontation was masterful It capitalised on the themes here and made them stronger

I could say that I love Dick but that would be weird I do very much enjoy Philip K Dick s writing and though this is not one of his best the Pizza and Sex Rule applies to him ie just as even bad pizza and or sex is still pretty good bad PKD is as well And this is not bad at all The first mistake that a new reader would make is to watch Blade Runner and expect a novelization of that film it was LOOSELY based upon the book I m a big fan of the Ridley Scott film starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer but the movie diverged from Phillip K Dick s literature early on The book is far bleak than the film if you can believe that and much intricate and complicated Blade Runner benefits from a simplified storyline The author was far ahead of his time both in the complexity of his story and the perspective from which he writes There are elements of Brave New World I Robot and Dune but the author has a uniue voice and the story is an original It is not an excellent work as there are gaps and inconsistencies and many loose ends that are never tied in but the concept and provocation are superbOne element of the book that was completely left out of the film was a sub plot involving a Christ like messiah and a faith system based upon what could have been a hoax First published in 1968 this was one of his theological based novels and a trend that would continue steadily becoming freuent and invasive until the end of his writingA MUST read for PKD fans as well as SFF fans periodreview Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

An android walks into a barHey the bartender says Only people with feelings are allowed in here You need empathy in order to be in a joke like this or at least have something people can relate toOh don t worry the android replies I definitely feel empathyRelieved the bartender invites him over to the bar What are you havingA beer would be great the android replies The bartender evidently approving of this fine choice gladly obliges and goes on to cater for the other guests The android sits there for a while drinking looking thinking He decides he wants of that beerHey bartender he shouts Come give me a refill my glass is empathyThe title of this edition Blade Runner is very fitting as it shows to which great extent my reading experience tied in to the movie This might seem strange because plot wise there are very few similarities between this book and the film And despite them being so different I can only say both are supremely good It s impossible for me to say which I prefer One element where the book wins it over the movie is the title Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep which was used as a subtitle in this edition of the book The contents remain the same as in the original book but the cover work is evidently made with the movie in mind The way the novel influenced the movie probably goes without saying The central theme has been picked up man managed to create an inferior version of man in order to make use of that product for their own benefit as slaves as company In essence what would happen if Dr Frankenstein s patent would expire and his creation would be mass produced made aesthetically pleasing and completely void of emotions Inferior is relative though because the androids are generally intelligent and agile And most look very attractive which helpsThat s where the philosophical aspect comes in What is it that makes us so different from these creations that makes us essentially humanAccording to society in this book it s empathy The ability to feel for others to manage to go through what they re going through by some mystic group connection The androids can t do that and are thus considered subhuman and when on the loose dangerousThis story progresses by uestioning that central statement For starters not all humans have empathy or at least they don t act upon it And when they have it it s selective at best The difference between human and humane is signifcant than what their similar spelling would suggest How else to explain the treatment of so called chickenheads by which society allows the elderly the weak and the stupid to be stranded on a dying planet Additionally hints are given that the androids could possess emotions than they were intended to have So where on the humanity spectrum does that leave the man who has to kill them for a living That s what this story is about This book offers some insights on how Dick himself intended his book which was essentially an anti establishment novel during the war in Vietnam His line of thinking was that when we go fighting we become what we re fighting against In his vision the androids truly were evil Any sympathizing I have been doing with them and with me many others was not intended by the author and maybe partially due to the movie s influence Admittedly it becomes much harder to like them near the end of the book especially if you like animals Dick s focus was not on how human the in our eyes inhuman are but on how bounty hunters themselves became devoid of emotions the longer they were doing their jobs How those who claim to be human can turn into the monsters they fight uite easily I personally like to regard it from both its perspectivesThe atmosphere created in the book is supreme When I had read it last year I rated it three stars Yesterday 4 Now after having given it careful thought 5 Why the hesitation There are some segments that don t seem to make sense like the operation Garland had set up or Mercer manifesting himself at certain occasions But then that s part of it The nightmare feel of the book is part of what makes it so great and these fluid elements in the story where there are unexplained shifts between dreamworlds and reality are part of what constitutes the nightmare experience My reading experience of this book was amplified by the influences of the other media it appeared in both the movie and the videogame which was based on the movie The artwork in those was simply sublime and provided the perfect framework in which the story could be set also in my mind Dark and always foggy streets trash everywhere cheap neon the only source of light and a musical score to round it all off It s a dreary place but somehow I can t explain it very appealing According to the additional notes in my edition Dick who sadly could not see the completed movie due to his untimely demise was positively surprised when he saw the first 20 minutes of the movie saying that it felt Ridley Scott had held a mirror to his mind I do wonder if that s entirely truthful since I doubt Harrison Ford saw a balding slightly overweight man when he looked in his own mirror I think it s safe to say that Ridley Scott and his entourage really added something to the experience of this story as well as offering a completely new narrativeIn conclusion This is one of those instances where the franchise in its entirety can be strongly recommended Like PKD himself predicted in a letter to the movie makers Blade Runner has proven to be invincible I hope the Blade Runner 2049 movie will demonstrate that furtherRead it watch it play it and feel human
