    I can see why they had to fudge with the story when they made this into a tv show. There no way it would have made it past a pilot if they just filmed a bunch of physicists sitting around discussing theories and principles. The whole "murder mystery" aspect totally took a back seat to theories about immutable futures, quantum mechanics, and stuff nightmares are made of called the Pauli exclusion principle.

    I still enjoyed the book, however at times the science was very heavy and tiring to the point where I was just skimming over some parts.

    I picked up Shadow Country and the Blade Itself at the library. Will read and review.

    Gescoms recommendation for "the master and margarita" paid off in silver dollars. Very enjoyable read.

    Just finished this:



    My parents bought me that box set of PKD books where it's 3 actual bound books, but with 3 or 4 novels in each book. All from different periods of his work. The Man In The High Castle is the first novel in the first book. It's also the only PKD work I read while I was originally in school. I wanted to read it again, though, because I barely remembered any of it.

    It takes place on an alternate earth where the Axis won WWII and America has basically been split between the Germans, Italians and the Japanese. It's a very strange book, and not at all like I'd expected, even though I had read it a decade or so ago. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I feel like I'm missing something. Like there was some underlying message/idea that didn't quite get across.

    All in all, a good book, but not my favorite PKD work. I will now commence reading the next novel in the book, the Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch.

    I really like The Man in in the High Castle!

    The mind of Neal Asher is an amazing place to visit... as is the universe he has created. I loved this latest effort.

    the 2nd book is much better in my opinion. you can really tell a difference in the way he writes since the blade itself was his first book. but i love Glokta i must have laughed for 20 minutes on the "if he's an apprentice, im the king of gurkul" part in the first book
