Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
Phillip K Dick’s Ubik flirts with perfection. I inhaled this novel over three days when one of my kids was sick and Christmas break was ending. I started the book on the couch during a Mythbusters marathon. By page fifty I wanted to shut the door and leave my kids to forage in the refrigerator for Gatorade and string cheese. And on Sunday night, when I closed the book, I felt satisfied and excited with a novel in a way that doesn’t happen much.Ubik is fun, smart, and exhilarating.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
This book was pointless. A bit like The Catcher in the Rye. Stuff happens, but nothing meaningful.
