|When a routine tour of a particle accelerator goes awry, Jack Hamilton and the rest of his tour group find themselves in a world ruled by Old Testament morality, where the smallest infraction can bring about a plague of locusts. Escape from that world is not the end, though, as they plunge into a Communist dystopia and a world where everything is an enemy.|
Philip K. Dick was aggressively individualistic, and no worldview is safe from his acerbic and hilarious takedowns. Eye in the Sky blends the thrills and the jokes to craft a startling morality lesson hidden inside a comedy.
|The concept is PKD genius, incorporating some of the best and brilliantly weird ideas to grace his works.|
The first third creates the religious idealism of futurescapes Dick is known for and although the following pages detract from that great start; The plot unravels in an effective way, never leaving the true extent of ‘the worlds’ created explained or defined.
This story must have been close to Dick’s heart, incorporating his passion for music; and hinting at almost semi-biographical nature.
|Despite feeling very 50’s with its overarching anti-communist themes, and a slightly wishy-washy non-committal ending. The great start and interesting characters draws you in.|
|Narrated by: Dan John Miller|
|A well performed reading considering the number of key characters involved.|
