A classic science fiction tale of artifical worlds by one of the great American writers of the 20th century Glen Runciter is dead. Or is he? Someone died in the explosion orchestrated by his business rivals, but even as his funeral is scheduled, his mourning employees are receiving bewildering messages from their boss. And the world around them is warping and regressing in ways which suggest that their own time is running out. If it hasn't already. Readers minds have been blown by Ubik: 'Sheer craziness, a book defying any straightforward synopsis . . . a unique time travel adventure that could only be concocted from the fertile psychedelic imagination of the incomparable PKD' Goodreads reviewer, 'This pre-cyberpunk gigglefest was an absolute joy to behold . . . I would bill it as a Truman Show-Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy-Barbarella-type of sci-fi' Goodreads reviewer, 'If you have not read PKD before I highly recommend Ubik as the gateway into his wonderfully weird fiction. I kind of envy you' Goodreads reviewer, 'UBIK is much stranger and more darkly humorous than Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep . . . although there are many humorous elements, overall the story is dark, philosophical, and just plain disorienting. I found the book impossible to put down' Goodreads reviewer, 'A darkly humorous blurring of lines between reality and illusion and a concomitant degree of paranoia' Goodreads reviewer, 'About eighty decades ahead of its time, only Ubik can help to process the overwhelmingness of the contemporary age. Chock full of post-death theology, psionics, proto-cyberpunk, and retro-retro-retro future nostalgia' Goodreads reviewer, 'We spend a great deal of it unsure of what is real and what isn't and some of the ideas Dick manages to throw in as the story progresses had me grinning and shaking my head at the crazy logic of it all' Goodreads reviewer,

    Bra bok, klart läsvärd. Spännande och driven berättelse som utspelar sig i en sci-fi-framtid (nåja, året är 1992) som Dick föreställde sig den när han skrev boken -69. Det blir förstås lite extra roligt att läsa om en framtid som känns både fiktionsartad och samtidigt som väldigt gammalmodig rent tekniskt.
    Berättelsen är ganska komplex och väldigt fascinerande och det finns en del spännande tolkningsmöjligheter samtidigt som man kan läsa den bara som en spännande och underhållande roman u... Läs hela recensionen
