A Scanner Darkly


This is a very dark novel. It was my first novel by Philip K Dick. I enjoyed large parts of it. The characters are very intriguing especially the central character who has two overlapping personalities (I think) this made it real fun trying to figure out. Definitely worth re-reading.

Some creative ideas and technology also which is enjoyable. The only thing that might not appeal to some is the fact iti is very drugs oriented and show some of the real dark side of this which some sci-fi fans will not enjoy.
