This is not Philip K. Dick's Writing.... 18 April 2008
By David D'aranjo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this edition of "Androids" under the impression that it was the sci-fi classic written by Philip K. Dick.

However, when I finally received it, I was surprised to find that this edition is actually a re-write.

LIttle did I know, the Oxford Bookworms Library is a subsidiary of the publishing house that "offers a wide selection of readers that are adaptations of modern and classic fiction.... graded at six language levels, from elementary (400 word vocabulary) to advanced (2,500 word vocabulary)."

This edition is Level 5, and while it still tells the basic story of "Androids..", it is certainly not Dick's novel. It is an adaptation.

My mistake! And I certainly am glad quality sci-fi is being made available (in distilled form) to beginning readers.

Yet I am compelled to write this review because I don't feel that Amazon.com is making it abundantly clear that this is a re-written edition.

The top of this page says:
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Oxford Bookworms Library) (Paperback)
by Philip K. Dick (Author), Andy Hopkins (Editor), Joc Potter (Editor)

When it really should read:
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Oxford Bookworms Library) (Paperback)
re-written by Andy Hopkins (Editor), Joc Potter (Editor), based on the original novel by Philip K. Dick (Author).

I hope Amazon will review their description of this book or post my review so other customers aren't misinformed.

Find the Real One. 11 Aug. 2010
By L. Clouser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have never seen bladerunner, nor have I read the original version of this novel. I wasn't aware there were different versions til after I had finished. I was amazed at how terrible this book was, until I noticed that this version is a rewrite. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Personally I plan on scouting out to find the novel actually written by Philip K. Dick. Having had no prior experience with this story, I still felt like I'd just walked out of a butchered movie showing of a potentially great book. It disheartened me to think that I wouldn't love this novel that I'd heard so much about. The characters have no depth. The story is simply told, no frills, no information. The planet is desolate, there are mentions of a WWT, and a basic story is played out. However, I felt nothing for the murdered androids, I didn't understand the quick affair between the android and bounty hunter. There were serious holes, because I couldn't tell for the life of me, why the android would kill the goat, or besides to illustrate a small point of lack of empathy, why androids would mutilate a spider. Nor was there any information on Mercer, or bounty hunting in general, which felt like huge plot points. Even for science fiction beginners, which I'm not, I wouldn't recommend the oxford edition of this book. I'm just relieved to know this story still has potential elsewhere.

Wrong Book 6 Oct. 2010
By K. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Frankly, I find it freakish that the one version of this novel available on Amazon is not written by Philip K. Dick, though it appears to be. The original is spectacular; however, this re-written version by Andy Hopkins and Joc Potter is a watered down, sanitized, ersatz-version of the original. And by the way--it is extremely hard to tell that this is NOT the original version. Philip K. Dick, however, would probably belch a dark laugh at the irony.

abridgement 29 Mar. 2010
By P. Court - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I couldn't tell that this book was an abridgement of the actual novel. Do not waste your time reading this tinytown version. Looks like the novel is out of print.

Not the real book 28 Feb. 2012
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not the actual, original novel, it is rewritten for children, Amazon should have made that more clear.
