This may be the best book I've read in a decade.
Fifty years later and this book remains as insightful as ever. PKD delves into consumerism, virtual reality, and drug flashbacks before there were words to describe these things. His meditations on religion and the nature of a supreme being resonate today.

Stigmata is absolute genius. Of the pre 03/74 novels, it is one of the most reality warping, and simultaneously one of the wittiest, deepest, and most entertaining. As essential as Ubik to an understanding of the Dickian Canon.

great listen. I also read the book in-between listens, still didn't understand it. but, it didn't stop me enjoying it.

A fascinating, typically trippy novel from Philip K Dick. It is thought provoking and always interesting in its insights and structure. Ultimately, though, one does not care for the characters or their fates, which makes the whole experience one of the head rather than of the emotions.
The story is already starting to move into the direction of Valis with a deep undercurrent of Gnostic mysticism
Feels very topical with the elements of global warming and solipsistic retreat into virtual reality
