Audio Book Summary

The classic sci-fi novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which inspired two major motion pictures: Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049

By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies build incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force.
 
Praise for Philip K. Dick
 
“[Philip K. Dick] sees all the sparkling—and terrifying—possibilities . . . that other authors shy away from.”—Rolling Stone
 
“A kind of pulp-fiction Kafka, a prophet.”—The New York Times

    An interesting experience. Great book, great narration. It really adds to the movies atmosphere and plot. I think I'd have to listen again though to understand it all. I guess that makes me a bit of a chicken head.

    Fantastic story...even better than the movie! This gives the listener a better insight to the world Deckard lives in, and a great appreciation of animals.

    Boring story, and it is read so slowly.
