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 assignment--find them and then..."retire" them. Trouble was, the androids all looked exactly like humans, and they didn't want to be found!

4 stars

i watched bladerunner a couple years ago, so im very qualified to denounce it and in fact, all films. this book is pretty good.
i like this interpretation of androids. they are cute and awkward. i also like the worldbuilding, and the various scifi technologies. it was very cyberpunk and angsty. i like the emotion machine, the electric animals, the dust, the kipple. I really like John Isidore.
EMPATHY is such a precious element of this book. it turns it inside out, it rocks my world.
im too lazy to write a full review sorry, maybe ill revisit this.

Review of 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

This book took me a while to get into it but once I'd got a grip on it the story flowed really well. The characters are very bland and it is pretty tough trying to find somebody to like.

The story didn't end how I was hoping it to but never mind, ya can't have everything.

The Blade Runner movie must be very loosely based on this book, I think I'm gonna have to watch the movie again now.
