Ubik (Vintage)
Ubik (Vintage)
von Philip K. Dick

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awe-inspiring, 25. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ubik (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
After reading UBIK, I have become totally hooked on PKD.
I am a big traditional sci-fi fan and although PKD is anything but traditional, I think he embodies everything that's great about SF. Only this genre allows people like PKD complete freedom to twist their literary reality into anything they desire. Needless to say, Philip K. Dick is an absolute master of that!
The only other SF writer whose style seems a little similar is Alfred Bester.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What does Scheme have to do with it?, 24. Mai 2000
I have read a lot of reviews here which lament the use of Scheme for teaching the fundamental concepts in this book. People have stated that while the book pretends to be language-independent it relies solely on Scheme, which invalidates the point.
I disagree strongly!
I think part of the problem is that it takes a bit of time to really "grok" Scheme. If you've never been exposed to it before (as I haven't), Scheme may seem strange and unnecessarily arcane to you at first. However, after doing it for a bit you will realize (as I have) that Scheme is amazingly flexible, succinct, powerful and unbelievably elegant. It incorporates all the features that other languages such as C++ take for granted and skip over, and exposes the real machinery behind them, without introducing a whole host of obscure syntactical details. This clarity and elegance of Scheme has helped me understand all other languages I have to deal with so much better!
Thus, in presenting the topics of this book in Scheme, the authors are actually succeding in making their discussions language-independent! Truly, the difference here lies in what your goals are: if you want to program in some specific language and just memorize it, this is not a book for you. However, if you actually want to understand how that language works, this will be akin to an epiphany for you. A very good book!

This is a great book. No review can possibly do it justice.
