Novel Realities Book Discussion Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick


Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

In Philip K. Dick's 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, bounty hunter Rick Deckard “retires” escaped androids hiding in war-ravaged San Francisco. Since the androids look exactly like humans, Deckard administers empathy tests to determine which suspects are on his hitlist. But the newest android version, the Nexus-6, responds with human-like emotions that can foil the test. Rick Deckard’s job becomes even more complicated when he becomes romantically involved with a sophisticated Nexus-6 named Rachel who's programmed to believe she's human.  

Our Novel Realities book club will discuss Rick Deckard’s dilemma and Philip K. Dick’s vision of the future in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? on Thursday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Sharon Forks Library. Check out the novel, watch the film adaptation, Blade Runner, or view my 2020 Book Chat on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and come join our discussion.
