When Dr. Jim Parsons awakens after a car accident, he finds himself in a future populated almost entirely by the young. But for the young to keep running the world, death is fetishized, and those who survive to old age are put down. In such a world, Parsons - with his innate desire to save lives - is a criminal and an outcast. For one revolutionary group, however, he may be just the savior they need to heal and revive their cryogenically frozen leader. When he and the group journey to 16th-century California, what they find causes them to question what they know about history and the underpinnings of their society. With the jarring immediacy of a car crash, Philip K. Dick throws both the listener and the protagonist of Dr. Futurity into a bizarre future where healing is a crime and youth rules.

Great PKD Story!
This book was far different than other PKD works I have read, but in a good way. The story in this novel is SO complicated and carefully woven that you can't help but get caught up with the plot. Had this been a real book, and not an audio book, I'm positive it would have been a page-turner.
Very good narration performance as well.
