Incredible novel that kind of falls flat when it enters familiar SF territory the last 25 pages or so. I often wonder how awesome Dick's novels could've been had he gained some popularity and respect (and money) while he was alive.

This novel is definitely worth reading though, whether you're a PKD fan or not.
