A Scanner Darkly, Trainspotting for the Sixties, 25 Feb. 2003
A Scanner Darkly is a story set in a time very similar to ours in a time period close to ours, philip k dick wasn't intersted in predicting the future instead he wanted to explore the soul and in this book not only does he do that but he incorporates a witty humor rarely shown in any of his other books as well as a dark mood
as with most of dicks books it explores the nature of reality & makes a political statement but also it makes a point about drugs and drug abuse while still managing to entertain, humor & scare. without a doubt one of the best books i've ever read.
