批評家のレビュー

"The writing is humorous, painful, awesome in its effect on both mind and heart.... There are few modern novels to match it." ( Rolling Stone)

あらすじ・解説

On an arid Mars, local bigwigs compete with Earth-bound interlopers to buy up land before the Un develops it and its value skyrockets. Martian Union leader Arnie Kott has an ace up his sleeve, though: an autistic boy named Manfred who seems to have the ability to see the future. In the hopes of gaining an advantage on a Martian real estate deal, powerful people force Manfred to send them into the future, where they can learn about development plans. But is Manfred sending them to the real future or one colored by his own dark and paranoid filter? As the time travelers are drawn into Manfred's dark worldview in both the future and present, the cost of doing business may drive them all insane.

Autism, schizophrenia, and Martians

“Everything wears out eventually; nothing is permanent. Change is the one constant of life.”
― Philip K. Dick, Martian Time-Slip

Martian Time-Slip may not be one of Dick's BEST novels, but it is almost my favorite. There is a huge energy and vitality in it. Dick is painting with his usual themes (loneliness, madness, drugs, pre-cognition, time, artificial intelligence, the other, corporatism, love, etc), but there is nothing usual about what he extracts. The only thing missing from this book is GOD, but Dick will delve into that later in his career. He is starting to flirt with the surface with the mystical practices of the Bleekmen (Martians).

I was especially taken with the time he spent on autism and schizophrenia. This book was written in the 60s just as Autism was starting to be distinguished and separated from schizophrenia, (due to some poor phrasing in the 40s). Dick who suffered from his own mental health issues was probably VERY aware of autism since he was deeply curious about mental health. Anyway, he says it best:

“Purpose of life is unknown, and hence way to be is hidden from the eyes of living critters. Who can say if perhaps the schizophrenics are not correct? Mister, they take a brave journey. They turn away from mere things, which one may handle and turn to practical use; they turn inward to meaning. There, the black-night-without-bottom lies, the pit. Who can say if they will return? And if so, what will they be like, having glimpsed meaning? I admire them.”

It is a brilliant science fiction classic

It is a brilliant science fiction classic. Unfortunately, it contains ugly language to describe the Martins.

Time-Slipped into the future

I was assigned to read this by my Science Fiction Literary Professor. I am not a science fiction reader. My safe haven is fantasy however, this story had me intrigued. At first I could not stand it. All the characters are despicable. I know that was the point but they were so unlikeable because they were so real. I know a few people like these characters and so that's to be commendable. Philip K Dick takes normal everyday people and puts them into his story. There are moments that felt like I took an edible before reading. I couldn't understand what was happening and had to read the chapter a few more times before I understood. The ending is thought provoking. I'm still trying to decide whether I liked the book or not and when a writer is able to make me think about it, they're doing something right. I think it's worth the read and to decide for yourself whether the time-slip will effect you.

Not amazing or anything.

This is the second book I've read by Philip K Dick, and I wasn't really impressed with the first one I read either (The Man in the High Castle), but since people adore him, I thought I'd give him another shot. I searched for a plot that seemed pretty interesting, and it was interesting to some extent. But Dick doesn't really create characters so much as use them ironically for his own purposes, so I didn't find this book too appealing.

PKD needed a ghost writer

Very clunky writing style. His dialog and exposition are overly wordy. The plot and story are good but PKD was not a good writer

Mumbo Jumbos

Storyline doesn’t flow. Characters are softly portrayed to the point of not knowing them. This review is on Audible. Perhaps a physical read would work better for me. I may see if the library has the book.

Oh so dated

I usually like, no, love PKD stories, but this one made me shake my head so many times. I admit to being pretty disappointed. I have loved nearly everything I’ve read by PKD, but not this one. I find it unbelievably dated. Especially when it concerned mental health or what we now call neurodiversity and even racism and cultural bias. And why didn’t any SF writers from the 50s and 60s anticipate digital?!? I don’t normally fault authors for that, because it’s so widespread.

I didn’t hate it, mind you. There’s other stuff to appreciate that almost redeem the novel. how Jack and Sylvia find their way back to one another and the Bleekmen’s role.

it makes no sense and it is ignorant and racist

they call time displacement skitsofrenia, a psychological disorder and lump all psychological issues as one. they call natives on mars niggers. they ostracize natives as well as people with any psychological disorders and exclude them from society.
the story also fucks with time travel in the stupidest of ways.
it reflects a very old time where women are treated as objects and there are very strict gender roles. thankfully no rape or violation of consent.
lots of sex though...
i waited till the end for it to make sense but it did not... it cannot. they got the basics wrong. terrible book, good narration.

Classic

Love me some Dick ... Philip K. Dick that is.
Excellent book, quite a slog as always, the middle wasnt making much sense, but by the end of it and as always the thirst for more starts to burn, then as is all P.K.D books, it ends. Just like a dream.

A first walk in the maze of Ubik

Many of the science fiction elements prefigure Ubik. The setting remind me of the TV series Deadwood
