The Man in the High Castle by Philip K Dick
The Man in the High Castle

Ladboy, September 27, 2011

Quite an amazing read, even though I did not have particularly high expectations going in. In what almost any other book would take 600 pages to cover, this does in less than 260. A ton of heady concepts are covered or at least brought into focus yet it never feels like any of it is being shoehorned in; it all feels organic to the world/universe that it inhabits. It is difficult to be more specific than that because it is really not something you want to have dictated to you. It's all about the individual journey. Definitely not light reading, either, but so, so worth it.
