Publisher's Summary

On a ravaged Earth, fate and circumstances bring together a disparate group of characters, including a fascist with dreams of a coup, a composer who plays his instrument with his mind, a First Lady who calls all the shots, and the world’s last practicing therapist. And they all must contend with an underclass that is beginning to ask a few too many questions, aided by a man called Loony Luke and his very persuasive pet alien.
In classic Philip K. Dick fashion, The Simulacra combines time travel, psychotherapy, telekinesis, androids, and Neanderthal-like mutants to create a rousing, mind-bending story where there are conspiracies within conspiracies and nothing is ever what it seems.

Philip K Dick is a genius

His stuff reads surprising well. Read aloud you get the time to appreciate his philosophical musings.

Decent book

Narrator was so staccato-robotic that for the first half an hour I honestly could not tell, try as I might, if he was a real person, or an artificial text-to-speech voice, such as Microsoft text-to-speech. Still wouldn't be suprised if it turned out to be artificial. Made it difficult to listen to.
