Boring story, and it is read so slowly.
An interesting experience.
Great book, great narration. It really adds to the movies atmosphere and plot.
I think I'd have to listen again though to understand it all. I guess that makes me a bit of a chicken head.
Fantastic story...even better than the movie! This gives the listener a better insight to the world Deckard lives in, and a great appreciation of animals.
I liked the narration, but didn’t LOVE it. A few places felt a bit flat in the book, as thought the Narrator was bored.
Great book, which spawned an even better movie.
The differences between the two genres were stark though
If you like anything written in this cyber-dystopian fashion, this book is definitely one of the OGs of the subject! Go on, try it out!
Not exceptionally cyberpunkish, though you can see some foundations. As a body of work, it seems confused on the actual theming it wants to tell. What are the androids analogous to? There is no real resolution to this, as we see mentally ill and other outsiders both put above, below, and equivalent to them. I find it to be confusing, and if there isn't really a metaphor in there, then its too long-winded about nothing. There's portions of the book that are outright silly, and most of Deckard's story is a bunch of random events happening in sequence. The story of Isidore is much more interesting, portrays the themes of the novel better, but still flounders at its end when the man is put up against Deckard. There's some foundation of interest, but in the end just amounts to a pile of sand. In some ways, I can see the quality and thematic ending, but in others, it really turns out hopeless and a bit pointless, rather than seeing a world drifting away, we're met with a world that could possibly have hope, were it not for the writer going out of his way to say "No, it's bad, it's all bad."
Still, it kept me engaged, and had some fun bits, Isidore's story keeps it from getting too bad.
The narrator is fine, his voice fits the time period of the piece.
I love de movie. Am now love the book also!
