Spiegazioni
gilroy: Just could not get into this book. Not even through a full chapter
lcl999 : Yes it's a good novel. But not good enough to be number one in this list.

Spiegazioni
jjwilson61 : Not science fiction
aulsmith : Fun, but really poor in the sf area.
Bluewolf0411: Not scifi
electrice : read in 2013, silly story
lcl999: One of the few really funny SF stories. Makes Pratchett seem a bit childish.

Spiegazioni
: Not Sci-Fi
Bluewolf0411: Not science fiction.
electrice: read, science fiction, dystopia, bleak portraying of a possible future, big brother and all the jazz
Bretzky1 : This is not a science fiction story. Just because a story takes place in the future does not make it science fiction.
horacio.salazar: A classic. Big Brother is now almost real. :D
lcl999: A justly famous book. Yes it is also Science fiction. What about the TV sets that listen and watch?

Spiegazioni
paradoxosalpha: One of Dick's most head-on approaches to his metaphysical conundrums. Written with an eye to the screen, and the pacing and characterizations reflect that.

pwaites : This was a slog full of mumbo jumbo jargon and characters I hated. I couldn't wait for it to be over.
