I heard recently that they were doing a remake of “Blade Runner” and it set me thinking. How could they possibly remake a classic film? I remember watching Blade runner with my dad who is by the way a massive sci-fi and fantasy fan! But I clearly remember watching this amazing film as a kid, I didn't at all understand the plot or the depth of the film, but I remember the music and the scene's and they were amazing! And it set me thinking... I've never read the book! The whole film is based on a book I've never read. So of course I got the book to read!
Philip K, Dick Wrote loads of books! The man in the high castle is one of his as well as total recall. I actually had no idea he wrote that or that Total recall was based on a book!
It's so funny when I curled up with this book it took me right back to the 80s, I had a total wave of Nostalgia. The book it's self is nothing like the film But there are core element's and the characters in the book are more in depth. The world it's self is fucked. It's still getting over a war. And they have lost Most of the earth's animals they have to be selective bred and go for insane price's without giving too much of the book away, that's just one of the story lines, The Fallout dust and chickenheads been another to all twists Putting this right up there as a sci-fi classic.
I enjoyed reading this book so much! I got a bit lost in places, but it all weaved together. And to be honest, I'm so glad I watched the film then read the book.
