Disappointed

14 years, 12 months ago at Dec 1 18:03
Whenever I tell someone that I read Dick, I get two responses, "Who is that?" and "You should read Ubik". With that kind of buildup I don't know if any book could have lived up to the hype, but Ubik was definitely disappointing. The twists were fun but not enough. One of his better books but definitely not his best.

"Man gets sucked into a world where the time runs backwards. There's clearly few major narrative mistakes and the ending twist is just criminally insane, but that's what's so lovable with these Phil K's novels."
