Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Omnibus
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Omnibus | Philip K. Dick
What's to Love: If you loved the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner, chances are you know it's based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? From 2009-2011, we published a 24-issue graphic interpretation of the novel as realized by artist Tony Parker. Now, for the first time, all 24 issues of the Eisner Award-nominated series are collected into one complete omnibus edition, featuring a brand-new cover by Mondo artist Jay Shaw and essays from Jonathan Lethem, Ed Brubaker, Warren Ellis, Matt Fraction, and more. What It Is: San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. The World War has killed millions, driving entire species to extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can't afford one, companies build incredibly realistic fakes: horses, birds, cats, sheep...even humans. Rick Deckard is an officially sanctioned bounty hunter tasked to find six rogue androids. They're machines, but look, sound, and think like humansand infinitely more dangerous.

Scratched off the bucket list poster! As a bounty hunter chases down androids to kill, he second guesses his existence. What does it mean to be human? This was an enticing novel full of deep questions. Also, and this may make me seem a little dumb, but I really liked how this sci-fi book wasn‘t over the top with jargon like some others I have read. It got its message across and was an enjoyable read!

I wanted to post a cute picture of the next book I read, but then I found out there was a pdf on the internet. I don‘t have a cute picture, but do you know what I do have? $16 plus tax.

I watched Blade Runner, guys! And let me tell you, it‘s nothing like the book!

I really thought I was going to love this. I wasn‘t drawn into any of the characters though, and the world that Dick creates is far from immersive or fully thought out. Feels like I‘m missing something here

When you find the book of your dreams and the price point lets you know you need to keep dreaming. UGHHHH.

This chick is off to the north woods so no weekend posts. I will miss my listsy village. Tootles!

It's been a few years since I read this, but it takes place in a future where what is real and what is replicant is indistinguishable. #virtualinsanity #aprella @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @Cinfhen

#LitsyClassics D
This was an interesting read particularly as Blade Runner is such a classic part of my cultural map and i enjoyed 2049 last year.
The book was similar but different - Deckard is obsessed with acquiring an animal, and Roy Batty is threatening but not to the extent of the film.
An incredible feat of imagination, well worth reading. And i can't wait to watch the film again.

Mehso-so

I know, I know, horrifying to call such a classic a so-so. But while the ideas are essential (so essential it's hard to imagine sci-fi without them) the detached, clinical tone and sudden shifts in the rather shallow characters blunted much of its power for me. My "classic of genre fiction" for #ReadHarder2018

I feel like mine is obvious, but this looks too fun. 🎉

My username on many platforms is after “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.” I cut the first E to make it fit the character limit the first time I used it on a different platform, & I liked the way it looked and sounded, so I kept it! I like that it‘s gender neutral (v important on the interwebs) & Philip K Dick, VALIS bless his crazy soul, wrote some seriously resonant fiction. 😳

Chelleo Cool backstory!! Could be a cool band name too 😀 2y

Librariana Hubby and I just watched Blade Runner last week - first time for me; he's watched it multiple times by now! - and Blade Runner 2049 over the weekend. I did not know that the former was based on your tagged book! Very neat-o handle 😁😊 2y

The inspiration behind the song (sadly we only have the film tie in cover!).
Numan‘s love of Philip K Dick books at the time led me to read them all in my teens! Some I enjoyed more than others!

RachelO Interesting. Any you'd particularly recommend? 2y
LeahBergen My brother was a fan of his books when we were in our teens. 2y
8leagueboot I have to say, I'm digging the raw nostalgia of this tie-in cover. 2y

TrishB @RachelO at the time The Man in the High Castle and Counter Clock World were my favs at the time! 2y
TrishB @LeahBergen they were very popular late 70s/early 80s. 2y
TrishB @8leagueboot this seems like yesterday to me 😁 2y
RachelO @TrishB Ta. He's one of those authors I should try out... one day! 2y
batsy I really need to read his novels one of these days! 2y
OrangeMooseReads I‘ve never seen this movie or heard the song (I‘ll remedy that much today), but I thought the book was good. 2y
TrishB @OrangeMooseReads the film bars very little resemblance to the book. But I like them both. 2y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Just watched this film again last night. Love the book!!! 2y

Are there any Philip K Dick fans in the house? The #FolioSociety had just announced its newest title, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? AND A Scanner Darkly. Two books in one. Two covers and two illustrators. It's stunning #FolioFreaks http://www.foliosociety.com/book/PKD/scanner-androids

Leniverse I saw it. It's so magnificent. I might have to start playing the lottery so I have a chance of buying all the different Folio Collector's books. 2y
Moray_Reads @Leniverse I want this one and I haven't read either of the stories! 2y
TrishB Oh yes 😀 I've read both and that's gorgeous! 2y

vivastory I love PKD. I was unaware of this, but will definitely be buying!! 2y
saresmoore How cool! I‘ve yet to read either, but that doesn‘t mean I don‘t want to buy this. 😬 2y
Moray_Reads @saresmoore and it's one of the more pricy collector's editions 2y

My book club chose this for our next read - the cover is creepy, right? Hope I like it!

SheilaChew Also, I didn't know that Blade Runner was from a book with a different title. I guess I'm not a geek after all. 2y

Brilliant. Well written and not at all dated ( especially considering the book is older than I am!)
Totally different from the film but a very satisfying read.
