“A psychedelic odyssey of hallucinations-within-hallucinations from which no reader emerges unscathed.”—Boston GlobeOn Mars, the harsh climate could make any colonist turn to drugs to escape a dead-end existence. Especially when the drug is Can-D, which translates its users into the idyllic world of a Barbie-esque character named Perky Pat. When the mysterious Palmer Eldritch arrives with a new drug called Chew-Z, he offers a more addictive experience, one that might bring the user closer to God. But in a world where everyone is tripping, no promises can be taken at face value. This Nebula Award nominee is one of Philip K. Dick’s enduring classics, at once a deep character study, a dark mystery, and a tightrope walk along the edge of reality and illusion.

Dziwna akcja, dziwne zdarzenia, dziwni bohaterowie. Fabuła - zaskakująca. Okoliczności świata - ponure. Przyszłość – niepewna. A mimo to autor może zastopować akcję w dowolnej chwili i przejść do rozważań religijnych i ontologicznych. Wystarczy pretekst, żeby bohaterowie toczyli ze sobą rozmowy o ...

Don't take "Dick at his strangest" lightly. This one's weird. Not where you would want to start with PKD.

Reading this book felt a bit like dreaming, after a while it became like a dream within a dream, soon after it became like full on Inception!. Without going into the synopsis in any detail (;) this novel features a drug induced virtual reality, initially with the aid of Ken and Barbie-like dolls in ...

This book is cool enough and all, but the ending is really hard to get a grip on. Every reader will come away with a different perception of the ultimate meaning of this book.
