I love Philip K Dick. This novel did not disappoint. The future is dystopian. The Nazis and the Japanese won the Second World War and have carved up the world between them. The characters are adrift, trying to make sense of their lives in this cruel, barbaric world. The details are chilling. Everyone is obsessed with using the I Ching to help them make decisions. They are also all reading The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, a novel which describes an alternate reality in which the Allies won the War rather than the Axis powers. It becomes increasingly unclear which is the true reality. I loved reading about the alternative history and the details were convincing though horrifying. The ending was somehow unsatisfying and I was left wanting to know more. Most sci fi leaves me cold but Philip K Dick gets me every time.
