Publisher Comments:

It was January 2021, and Rick Deckard had a license to kill.

Somewhere among the hordes of humans out there, lurked several rogue androids. Deckard's assignmet--find them and then..."retire" them. Trouble was, the androids all looked exactly like humans, and they didn't want to be found!

If there ever was a novel that could bring you into a world so like our own in some ways but greatly different in others its BladeRunner. If youve seen the film do not try to keeep that in your mind while trying to read this, although his has many obvious similarities to the film the book follows much more precisley to each characters personality, and emotional focus. Dark, post apocolyptic cities, and androids disguised to avoid the bounty hunter make this a must read novel for any fans of sci fi, and the dark fantasy genre.

Shoshana, November 24, 2007 (view all comments by Shoshana)
This edition is titled "Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep)", but that's a movie tie-in title, not Dick's. The novel and the film have about as little in common as Le Guin's Earthsea Trilogy and the Sci-Fi Channel's loosely based, made-for-television movie "Earthsea." There are some characters and action elements in common, but very different plots and emotional foci. Like Dick's "A Scanner Darkly" and "Valis," there is considerable confusion between characters' selves and a larger consciousness that is the manifestation of a larger than life, perhaps unnatural intelligence; blurred identities; and at least one character who may be psychotic and/or may correctly perceive artifice and deception by people and systems. Unlike "Blade Runner," which is primarily an exterior, action-adventure narrative, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" devotes considerable attention to the characters' concerns about consciousness and empathy, and plays with the reader's identification with characters over time. Like much of Dick's work, it does not answer the questions it poses about artifice versus the numinous, but instead sustains the reader's identification with the characters beyond the end of the book by letting the mystery stand.
