When a routine tour of a particle accelerator goes awry, Jack Hamilton and the rest of his tour group find themselves in a world ruled by Old Testament morality, where the smallest infraction can bring about a plague of locusts. Escape from that world is not the end, though, as they plunge into a Communist dystopia and a world where everything is an enemy. Philip K. Dick was aggressively individualistic, and no worldview is safe from his acerbic and hilarious takedowns. Eye in the Sky blends the thrills and the jokes to craft a startling morality lesson hidden inside a comedy. Download and start listening now!

    " I learned that I'm not the only one who thinks that when I pray to the Eye in the big sky, money should fall from the stratosphere. Oh, and P.K. Dick is brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 11/18/2013

    " Read straight through it in two days. Not quite as good or mind bending as some of his other work but still entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 10/12/2013

    " Wow - totally surprised!!! Great book, and commentary on the cold war - this really is a must read. I wish I would have gotten it in High School with 1984 and animal farm. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bradley | 8/19/2013

    " Decent book. Not one of my favorite Dick novels, but I have to say, he knows how to write in a way that perks my curiosity. Read this in two days, could not put it down, but then, it was a mediocre Dick novel. Above average sci-fi novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Lefevre | 6/14/2013

    " Yet another novel by PKD that is becoming relevant to today's culture once again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aja | 4/18/2013

    " Not my favorite of his, but definitely the scariest one I've read yet! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 2/12/2013

    " Solid early PKD- outside of some vocabulary and everyone's fear of Commies would fit right in today "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler | 2/7/2013

    " Great book! Like a lot of PKD novels, it starts out with everything normal and then it all spins out of control getting crazier and crazier. If you are a fan, you will probably love this. I really liked the God character (tetragrammaton). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pickle | 1/9/2013

    " excellent start through to the middle of the book but the ending wasnt great, so for this i give it a 3/5. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zachary Stewart | 12/24/2012

    " Standard. A group of not so good people get caught up in a fantasy world of their own making. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 10/17/2012

    " What's not to love about PKD. This book is a great case for hanging around people who have differing views than our own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice Lee | 9/28/2012

    " I remembered it as a very fun read. It didn't blow me away like "Do Androids..." did, but it was funny, quirky, and a very fast read, like most other PKD books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nathaniel G | 9/13/2012

    " definitely not his best work "

About the Author
Author Philip K. Dick

Philip K. Dick (1928–1982) published thirty-six science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power. Toward the end of his life, his work turned toward deeply personal, metaphysical questions concerning the nature of God. Eleven novels and short stories have been adapted to film, notably Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. The recipient of critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout his career, Dick was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2007 the Library of America published a selection of his novels in three volumes. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages.
