    On Wednesday I found myself at a party an occurrence itself worthy of remark at which everyone wore I m currently reading stickers, so I had several opportunities to explain why I was loving The Man in the High Castle One such conversation went like this So what s that about Well, it s scifi Or rather speculative fiction Er, hm No I don t do scifi But it s got Nazis Oh my god I love Nazis Another conversation involved me explaining to a white guy how interesting I a half Japanese guy found read

    3 1 2 starsScientifically and politically, this is absolute genius The way Philip K Dick masterfully rewrites history and portrays this alternate United States is quite incredible and I can easily see why the guy has such a huge following That being said, while this novel is undeniably clever, I think what it lacks is a human touch I found it hard to care about any of the mishmash of characters, which for me means that I ultimately found it hard to care about the direction of the story and its outcome.What t

    Original review, Feb 22 2016 DISCLAIMER It would evidently be irresponsible to call Donald Trump a Nazi merely on the strength of a recent speech in which he suggested it would be desirable to shoot Muslims using bullets dipped in pig s blood A plausible interpretation is that this is no than the result of dispassionately calculating that the upside in terms of increasing his attractiveness to the ignorant racist demographic is larger than the downside in terms of decreasing his appeal to many people who

    They want to be the agents, not the victims, of history They identify with God s power and believe they are godlike That is their basic madness They are overcome by some archtype their egos have expanded psychotically so that they cannot tell where they begin and the godhead leaves off It is not hubris, not pride it is inflation of the ego to its ultimate confusion between him who worships and that which is worshiped Man has not eaten God God has eaten man If Franklin Delano Roosevelt had been assassinated in 1934 instead

    Fans of Philip K Dick and science fiction might be underwhelmed by The Man in the High Castle since, other than passing mention of cross continent rocket ship travel and a German exploration of Mars, there really isn t any science or signature PKD craziness or large scale action rather, Dick s 1962 book is alternative history, the aftermath in the United States after Germany and Japan win World War II and a novel of ideas There are a number of crisscrossing plots, colorful main characters, applications of the ancient Chin

    Thank God, this is fiction, at least in our dimension WELCOME TO 1962 It is impossible that ours is the only world there must be world after world unseen by us, in some region or dimension that we simply do not perceive. This book is a frightening glimpse of how our world could been if the Axis Powers would have won the World War II.The Nazi Germany and the Imperial Japan won and they divided the planet between them Even the United States is now divided with the East Coast dominated by Nazis and the West Coast under Ja

    Philip K Dick was certainly a brilliant man and a gifted writer His imagined dystopia of a world split between the victorious Reich and Imperial Japan is chilling and realistic Ok, perhaps colonisation of Mars in 1962 is a bit of a stretch, but the depiction of San Francisco under the Japanese administration was excellent His characters were vivid and lifelike His villain was somewhat predicable, but still a fascinating one The dystopia he describes particularly the horrors of unbridled fascism in Africa, etc is terrifying I enjoyed the inter

    The Man in the High Castle by Philip K Dick, winner of the Hugo Award for best novel, is classic, very good science fiction It is the story of a segmented and defeated United States after the Axis powers won World War II This alternate history actually began in the thirties as Roosevelt is described as having been assassinated Taking a roving perspective amidst several characters and some loosely connected interwoven storylines, PKD explores a world where America is divided into three distinct sections and controlled by either Japan or Germany The s

    I think this book broke my brain.I mean, it s so many things tied up in a slim little volume an alt history what if Germany and Japan had won the Second World War, a meditation on the inability to ever accurately try to reconstruct what might have beens, one of the most interesting literary experiments I ve ever read, a look at chance and fate in how the world unfolds, and a book that can definitely bend your sense of reality.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read wh
