Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

One of the genuine visionaries that North American literature has produced. L.A.WEEKLY -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Synopsis

In the overcrowded world and cramped space colonies of the late 21st century, tedium can be endured through the use of the drug Can-D, which enables the user to inhabit a shared illusory world. When industrialist Palmer Eldritch returns from an interstellar trip, he brings with him a new drug, Chew-Z, which is far more potent than Can-D, but threatens to plunge the world into a permanent state of drugged illusion controlled by the mysterious Eldritch. THE THREE STIGMATA OF PALMER ELDRITCH is, by universal consent, one of his three key novels, and the book in which he first took his perennial interest in the fragile nature of reality to a new level of imaginative intensity.

I've read 90% of what PK Dick wrote, and this is in the top 3, if not #1. This fun nightmare is so wonderfully strange and brilliant, it embodies his paranoias and fanatsies more densely than his other books. When people ask me what its about, I usually spend 10 minutes on what happens in just the first 50 pages. Put down your drugs, dump your drink in the sink, stop watching television. This is far better. And, like the users of Chew-Z, YOU WILL NEVER RECOVER.

This book is really a tour de force. Besides the (typically for Dick) scheming women, distortions of reality, ever-stronger alienations from society, and cruelty in the small details and gimmicks, the true star of this book is Dick's portrait of a omnipotent and cruel, yet sad man-become-god Eldritch.
This is a very strange book with quirky humour, yet it touches metaphysical questions like fate, religion, and the value of good will. A very dark book. Strongly recommended.

Far off on inhospitable planetary colonies, volunteers "chosen" by the UN make their lives bearable by chewing a drug called Can-D, which temporarily transports them into the life of the doll Perky Pat. The drug becomes a kind of religion, with fanatic users arguing that they really are transported into Perky Pat's world and that the experience constitutes a kind of Holy communion. Meanwhile, Palmer Eldritch returns from his ten year journey bearing a new kind of drug-- Chew-Z-- a competitor to Can-D. He claims that while Can-D promises a new life Chew-Z can actually provide it. However, there seem to be more than a few catches...
A book that deals with Dick's perennial obsessions-- God, the nature of reality, and the experience of the Holy. The ending gets a little too tangled for this to be one of his best works.

I simply could not get into this book as much as others PKD wrote. His prose style in 3SoPE reads a bit clunky at times, and his descriptions of some places fall short of giving you the feeling of what's going on (while others, like when Leo was in Eldritch's world, are written brilliantly). I found myself wishing he'd hurry along the descriptions of the Maritan colonists you meet early in the novel.
This is one of his novels where the perception of reality takes center stage, this time centered around a drug (chew-z) that is supposed to create a world entirely for you, in an instant. PKD explores this perception, not just from an objective standpoint (is this world any less real than the reality you live in?), but what effect it has on people as well. One of the aspects of PKDs fiction that I admire greatly is his unwavering devotion to displaying the full range of human emotion and experience when faced with the unknowable (or the just plain weird- Leo's actions when faced with the loss of his company were suprising, yet believable). No other science-fiction author I can think of was as concerned with the human soul/experience as PKD, even if he does fall short at times of displaying the concept with his words. Still a recommended book.

This was the first of Dick's stories that I read and it rocks!I love it,as it is by turns deeply, genuinely funny(not smart-alecky laughing at science fiction)and at the same time terrifyingly disturbing. Eldritch is set in one of Dick's characteristically bizarre futures.People have weird jobs and pastimes(minning?Perky Pat?)and their clothing is outlandish(shorts and colonial-type pith helmets?).And into this world is thrown a man who'll get you the ULTIMATE trip.For a price... The plot and the ideas expressed about our horrifying possible futures,are superb.And,as with most of Dick's material,the writng is very"pulp":robots,rayguns,spaceships,precogs,telepaths,etc,so its a very easy read,despite its depth and intelligence.The sort of book where the actual experience of reading it is something to talk about for years afterwards.This is a barnstormer of a read.So out there and go and read it. It will tear your soul apart.You've been warned.

I've read around 25 of PKD's novels, this one twice. What bothers me about this is though the story is strong, the characters vivid, the theme bursting forth on every page of the novel, I tend to think that it isn't as clear or direct as "Time out of Joint' or 'Eye In The Sky', 'Ubik,' or even lesser known works such as 'Our Friends From Frolix 8.' Nonetheless it is a grea story but just too much for me. I'll have to read it again, I guess.

This novel has a religious basis. People have refered to this as an 'LSD', or 'wildly disorientating' novel, but that is simply not the case. I guess many people don't really understand what PKD is getting at. This book deals with God and Satan, as well as the phenomenon of the wine into blood thing, ontology etc. I'm not qualified to discuss these issues, but it must be said that they were of profound importance to PKD.
As a SF novel, 3 Stigmata is absolutely brilliant. The ideas in this book are enough to ensure its brilliance alone; like Perky Pat and Can-D (which I felt was sheer genius on PKD's part), the hovels on Mars, the extreme temperatures on Earth (although this gets little attention as the book progresses), E-therapy, and of course Palmer Eldritch himself and Chew-Z. The time-travelling as a result of Chew-Z provides some of the best moments in the book, and the ending, where Barney and Palmer Eldritch merge into one... well, this defies words.
If anything is flawed in this book I believe it is the characterisation. In PKD's best books you feel strong empathy for the characters, good and bad (a prime example of this is Ubik.) Aside from Palmer Eldritch himself, who is a brilliant character, the chars. are not PKD's best. Barney, Leo, Roni, Emily are half the people Glen Runciter and Joe Chip are.
This is not my favourite PKD novel, but that is due to the subject material, not the execution of the novel. '3 Stigmata' is the first really religious PKD novel, and it stands as a precursor to later works such as 'Valis' and the 'Divine Invasion.'
