This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

TitleDo Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
AuthorPhilip K. Dick
Call NumberPS3554.I3 D6
Location2nd Floor Humanities
RatingSomewhat Recommended
Book ReviewI picked this up as a representation of a book published in the year I was born.  Having seen the movie Blade Runner many times, I expected something quite different from the book.  While they are very loosely tied, the book focused more on Deckard's longing to own a real animal and his detachment when it comes to killing androids.  Many allegories to explore and very much like other sci-fi books of the time.  Not my favorite.
