Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
Science fiction classic from 1977 that explores the complex and ultimately deadly interplay between capitalism, surveillance, mental illness and drug addiction, predicting the much more corporate controlled, disciplinary, panoptical, drugged society we live in today. It reveals the absurdity and hypocrisy of what would become known as the “war on drugs,” as it uncovers the corporate roots of the whole cynical enterprise.
One of my all-time favorites.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
Objectively, this rating is too harsh. But, who says I have to be objective?!
This is my second attempt with Philip’s writing, and I’ll give up. It’s just too tedious for me. Due to it, I probably missed out on the good parts of the book.
