Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was published in 1968. Grim and foreboding, even today it is a masterpiece ahead of its time.
By 2021, the World War had killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep...
They even built humans.
Emigrees to Mars received androids so sophisticated it was impossible to tell them from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans could wreak, the government banned them from Earth. But when androids didn't want to be identified, they just blended in.

After “Neuromacer” I thought I’d give a try to “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, a book that not only inspired the movie “Blade Runner”, but also, according to some, the Cyberpunk genre. Since I loved William Gibson’s book so much I wanted to know how good Philip K. Dick was.

I’ve to say that Ridley Scott, director of the movie, did an amazing job with “Blade Runner”. He seems to have taken the best ideas from “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, but then added some of his own creating a movie that in essence is something completely different from the book.

Something much better!

To say that “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” in some way influenced the Cyberpunk genre is like saying that Blues Music inspired a band like Pink Floyd. As long as my knowledge goes, Blues Music did inspire Rock Music, but all Rock Music with the same intensity? No.

I guess what I want to say is that I don’t see myself reading another book from this author.
