Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Blade Runner) by Philip K. Dick – Review

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is one of the best-known novels by Philip K. Dick. It’s a story about a mercenary, Rick Deckard, who signs on a new mission in order to earn enough money to buy a live animal to replace his electric sheep. The mission involves hunting down six Nexus-6 (androids) that fled from Mars (that became one of Earth’s colonies after a Word Word took place).51cqohlycwl-_sx323_bo1204203200_

It’s amazingly well written and a really fast read. The important topics such as genetic engineering, cloning, environment, and globalization are very well addressed. It’s a great story with fine characters with very unique personalities, but the main focus is making you question certain issues.

I would’ve prefered if the world and the plot had been better explained, but it was entertaining from start to finish nevertheless. The ending is a wee bit anti-climatic, but all in all, great read.

I recommend it to all the sci-fi lovers out there.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Bye, keep on reading!
