Top critical review
A great intro to Science Fiction, some little gems in here.
on 12 August 2015
I'm torn between giving this three and five stars. The price alone makes it worth 5 stars. A couple of the stories in the book are really good and make you wonder about mankind and society in general.
There is one really good story relating to the usage of language.
Where it is not necessarily worth the five stars is there are a few stories I have read a lot of times within the compilation (eg Beyond lies the Wub). If you have read a lot of Philip K Dick stuff, then the price alone may still make it worth your while to catch any of the stories you may have missed, but you may not get anything exciting or different.
If you have never read any of his stories, are into science fiction and want to know what one of the pioneers of fantasy and science fiction has written, then this is very much worth a look.
*Warning* there is none of his A-list stuff in this compilation, *do not* expect to get "do androids dream of electric sheep", "The Man In The High Castle", or "A Scanner Darkly" within this book set.
