This is exactly the kind of story I need to hear. If you are dealing with depression or you feel alone and confused about the Universe, I would highly recommend this book. It maybe baffling at times, but that just makes me feel more connected with the characters (especially Dick himself). It won't make you less crazy, but you might feel less alone. You may even find a spark of faith you never thought you had.

Creative and cleverly witty. An impressive mix of theology, gnosticism, psychology and humor. Expertly narrated.

First I want to mention the excellent performance by Phil Gigante. His reading is pacy and expressive, really bringing the story to life.
The book itself is a deep, profound meditation on the nature of reality itself, on mental illness and theology. It incorporates elements of science fiction in an unusual way. The result is a book like no other I have ever read. Mind expanding, thought provoking, strange and wonderful.

Would you try another book written by Philip K. Dick or narrated by Phil Gigante?
I love most of Philip K Dick's books and Phil Gigante is a great narrator but this actual 'novel' is just a stream of consciousness of an intelligent man who has had a mental breakdown.
Would you ever listen to anything by Philip K. Dick again?
Yes. most of his books are a fantastic mind-f@ck.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Philip K Dick is a highly intelligent man and has lots of interesting ideas and perspectives but this book just seemed to ramble with no point.
