Kurzbeschreibung

8. März 2007 Gollancz
World War Terminus had left the Earth devastated. Through its ruins, bounty hunter Rick Deckard stalked, in search of the renegade replicants who were his prey. When he wasn't 'retiring' them with his laser weapon, he dreamed of owning a live animal -- the ultimate status symbol in a world all but bereft of animal life. Then Rick got his chance: the assignment to kill six Nexus-6 targets, for a huge reward. But in Deckard's world things were never that simple, and his assignment quickly turned into a nightmare kaleidoscope of subterfuge and deceit -- and the threat of death for the hunter rather than the hunted ...

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is a book that most people think they remember, and almost always get more or less wrong. Ridley Scott's film Blade Runner took a lot from it, and threw a lot away; wonderful in itself, it is a flash thriller where Dick's novel is a sober meditation. As we all know, bounty hunter Rick Deckard is stalking a group of androids returned from space with short life spans and murder on their minds--where Scott's Deckard was Harrison Ford, Dick's is a financially over-stretched municipal employee with bills to pay and a depressed wife. In a world where most animals have died, and pet-keeping is a social duty, he can only afford a robot imitation, unless he gets a big financial break. The genetically warped "chickenhead" John Isidore has visions of a tomb-world where entropy has finally won. And everyone plugs in to the spiritual agony of Mercer, whose sufferings for the sins of humanity are broadcast several times a day. Prefiguring the religious obsessions of Dick's last novels, this asks dark questions about identity and altruism. After all, is it right to kill the killers just because Mercer says so? --Roz Kaveney -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a classic in the sci-fi genre (read and enjoy) 1. Februar 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I read this book in class and I already had seen the film so my motivation to read was pretty low to begin with. But I quickly realized that knowing the film did not help much because the book is just much more complex than the film. Many themes are left out in the film that bring the book to a point where everything works together and is connected and related to each other. When I actually started the reading I was fascinated and impressed by the way PKD is able to involve the reader into his ideas. I started to think about the philosophical questions that are discussed in DADOES and I think this philosophical aspect and the elaborate description of it is the main reason for the big crowd of fans that are discussing the problems that are brought up in the book even today. At the same time the book is still a sci-fi - novel which is easy to read. All in all I truly can recommend this book not only for all sci-fi-fans but also for everyone else who likes to think about philosophical questions or only wants to read a book to enjoy the reading...

4.0 von 5 Sternen What makes human beings human? 26. April 2003
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Blade Runner is really a masterpiece in the category of dystopian sci-fi novels.
After a nuclear World War 3, planet earth's face has definitely changed to show a dreary, devastated view - for those who still live on the surface of it and have not migrated to an extraterrestrial colony.
In these new colonies, man holds so called "androids", a kind of a biological, genetically engineered and human-like robot, in order to colonize the vast, new landmasses. Gifted with intelligence of human beings some of them manage to escape the bad conditions of colonies' slavery and reach earth in a shuttle.
However, they are not allowed to do so and there are special forces called "Blade Runners" hunting their heads. This is called "retiring an andy".
Rick Deckard is a Blade Runner. Till today, everything has gone right but this time the Rosen Corporation, producer of the recently lanced "Nexus-6" series, has done a damn good job: Rick and his chief officer have their doubts whether they may be recognized from normal human beings by the standard Voigt-Kampff testing procedure. After having met the first exemplar of Nexus-6 types - a young female - Rick Deckard begins to realize that there are feelings of empathy towards it (or is it a her?) surfacing inside him.
Suddenly his persuasions start breaking into pieces...
One should not make the mistake to compare "Blade Runner" the movie and "Blade Runner - Do androids dream..." the book, for they clearly do not cover the same subjects, as neither they cover the same story. Both of them open many philosophic topics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen (D)Evolving Mankind 2. April 2001
Von Jassu1979 VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
Instead of repeating what has already been said about DADOES, (yes, I think it is a great novel, and the philosophic aspects such as Mercerism, the Mood Organ and the nature of humanity are really captivating...) I'd like to share an insight with you which I stumbled across while reading a short story written by E.A.Poe, "The Black Cat": The characters in DADOES use pets to prove to themselves that they are still human. Animals are nothing but a means of showing how much empathy and compassion there is in the depths of the owner's hearts. BUT the main character in Poe's "Black Cat" does exactly the same: He claims to be sensitive and human because he was fond of animals all along - only to evolve into a murderous, unfeeling monster that kills its own wife in the end. Rick Deckard acts along the same lines: He "cares" for his pets (or rather the status he gains by owning them), but is able to kill androits nevertheless. To be fond of animals isn't a good means of proving one's empathy, as it seems. The commander of the terrible KZ Auschwitz in WW2 wrote in his diary how he cried bitter tears when he was 8 years old because his cat died, trying to prove what a compassionate and sensitive person he was. Nevertheless he was able to kill millions of people (even children) without hesitation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of Dick's four or five best 25. April 2000
Von J. Kruppa
Format:Taschenbuch
If you are coming to "Do Androids Dream..." by way of "Blade Runner", the film (loosely) based on the book, be warned: the two are similar only in their most basic plot outlines. As is typical of Dick in his prolific middle period (roughly 1962-1970), there is a lot going on in this novel. The main theme, dehumanization, is amplified by each character and situation, but Dick creates a rich environment that is equally compelling as the way that theme is explored.
In short, Rick Deckard's job is to kill renegade androids, a job he finds taking its toll on him. Sadly, he's not the only one who is feeling dehumanized: witness the existence of the Penfield Mood Organ (one of Dick's most touching inventions), through which one can alter one's state of consciousness by dialing the appropriate setting (such as "the desire to watch television, no matter what's on"); witness the cult around Wilbur Mercer, a vague messianic figure whose (literally) uphill struggle and persecution an individual can share by grasping the handles of a little black "empathy box"; witness Buster Friendly, a television personality bent on exposing Mercerism as a sham; and, lastly, witness the popularity of artificial animals (such as the electric sheep of the title) in a post-apocalyptic world where most real animals are either dead or sterile from radiation.
That Dick manages all of these sharply drawn ideas (and more, as well as a number of interesting characters) while still keeping the plot moving swiftly and ruminating on the nature of humanity is a tribute to his brilliance. "Do Androids Dream..." is not a perfect book -- there are a few loose ends at novel's close -- but it is a rich and rewarding one that retains its impact as the years pass. As a summation of several of Dick's ideas, it may also be the ideal introduction to this author's work.
