Publisher's Summary

When catastrophic overpopulation threatens Earth, one company offers to teleport citizens to Whale’s Mouth, an allegedly pristine new home for happy and industrious émigrés. But there is one problem: the teleportation machine works in only one direction. When Rachmael ben Applebaum discovers that some of the footage of happy settlers may have been faked, he sets out on an 18-year journey to see if anyone wants to come back.
Lies, Inc. is one of Philip K. Dick’s final novels, which he expanded from his novella The Unteleported Man shortly before his death. In its examination of totalitarianism, reality, and hallucination, it encompasses everything that Dick’s fans love about his oeuvre.

Disjointed, but very Philip K Dick

Most of the middle of this story has been spliced into his short story The Unteleported Man. This gives it a very disjointed feeling and makes it a bit hard to follow.

Overall it's still worth listening to if you're a die hard PKD fan.

The only Dick I didn't really love, but so-so Dick is better than no Dick at all I suppose. Take that as you will. Struggled to finish after a good opening. Seems to plumb the depths of Philip K Dick's acid dreams. Very hallucinogenic story and pushes the boundaries of his trademark mind-bending. Story is good, but there was a major section of the book which was so out-there that I ended up losing interest for a while. If you're a Dick fan then definitely read it, but there are others titles to read first. Unless you're on acid, in which case, start here.
