Floyd Jones is sullen, ungainly, and quite possibly mad, but in a very short time he will rise from telling fortunes at a mutant carnival to convulsing an entire planet. For although Jones has the power to see the future, a power that makes his life a torment, his real gift lies elsewhere: in his ability to make people dream again in a world where dreaming has been made illegal, even when the dream is indistinguishable from a nightmare.

In Philip K. Dick’s unsettling chronicle of the rise and fall of a postnuclear messiah, readers will find a novel that is as minutely realistic as it is prophetic. For along with its engineered mutants, hermaphroditic sex performers, and protoplasmic drifters from the stars, The World Jones Made gives us nothing less than a deadly accurate reading of our own hunger for belief.

Listener Opinions

    " Pretty mediocre early PKD. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rose | 2/11/2014

    " I debated whether I should give this book 3 stars or 4; I decided on 4 because it was an overall enjoyable read. I wouldn't classify it as Dick's best work, but it wasn't bad at all. Definitely strange and bizarre, but also fun. "

    " Started it as a way to get into PKD(after 'Electric Sheep' of course). Didn't take long to finish. I just didn't get the point he was trying to make. The style led me to speedread rather than savor. It's something an unexperienced writer would produce and call it good writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Victor Whitman | 1/30/2014

    " Of his early books, I would say this is the easiest to read. The story is suppose to chart the rise and fall, and then semi deification, of Jones, a man who can see exactly one year ahead. That story line starts out in a promising way and then runs out of gas. Never to disappoint, PKD whirls off into a subplot involving a mutant tribe of future Venutians, which is strange but fun. "
