Review: Our Friends from Frolix 8

Our Friends from Frolix 8Our Friends from Frolix 8 by Philip K. Dick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Telepaths, precogs, drugs, repressive governments: you know a Philip K Dick story when you read one. But it's not because of these recurring elements alone; even if he uses them over and over again, each work is different enough so that he never really repeats himself.

Take for instance Our Friends from Frolix 8. It doesn't stand as any of his major works, but it's just as funny and depressing / thought-provoking as, say, Ubik or Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? It defies description other than to say that it's a book by Philip K Dick.
