On Mars, the harsh climate could make any colonist turn to drugs to escape a dead-end existence. Especially when the drug is Can-D, which transports its users into the idyllic world of a Barbie-esque character named Perky Pat. When the mysterious Palmer Eldritch arrives with a new drug called Chew-Z, he offers a more addictive experience, one that might bring the user closer to God. But in a world where everyone is tripping, no promises can be taken at face value.
This Nebula Award nominee is one of Philip K. Dick's enduring classics, at once a deep character study, a dark mystery, and a tightrope walk along the edge of reality and illusion.

Fantastic and current

This PKD story takes place in 2016!
Yes, because it is highly imaginative and unique. It kept me interested and was totally unpredictable.
The descriptions of the drug trips.
Please, please, male narrators, do not use a falsetto for female voices! It is so cheesy and insulting.
I would, but good luck with that!
Pretty good book, especially for the price. Give it a listen.
