Drug Trip Extrordinaire

If you enjoyed Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, you will like this one. Eschewing his sometimes over sci-fi books, Dick's paranoia comes back with a vengeance. The concept behind the book is nice, and Dick plays it masterfully. Definitely one of his must reads. Read it before seeing the movie.

I read this book a long time ago and found it very powerful and moving. I wasn't so impressed by the movie, it wasn't as compelling. I do think that Dick's work is hard to film which makes his books
