Bluewolf0411: Not scifi
electrice : read in 2013, silly story

Verklaringen
: Not Sci-Fi
Bluewolf0411: Not science fiction.
electrice: read, science fiction, dystopia, bleak portraying of a possible future, big brother and all the jazz
Bretzky1 : This is not a science fiction story. Just because a story takes place in the future does not make it science fiction.
horacio.salazar: A classic. Big Brother is now almost real. :D
lcl999: A justly famous book. Yes it is also Science fiction. What about the TV sets that listen and watch?

Verklaringen
paradoxosalpha: One of Dick's most head-on approaches to his metaphysical conundrums. Written with an eye to the screen, and the pacing and characterizations reflect that.
