Just like the movie. You can almost hear Vangelis' soundtrack. Mood and atmosphere came straight from the film. Plot kept right up with the 'who can be trusted' line of the original.

Awkwardly written and poorly paced this dull blade of a book doesn't approach the edge of human or anything else for that matter. It is disheartening when an author is not competent enough in his or her trade to the point of having to bring the action to a screeching halt to have disjointed dialogue between characters to explain the goings on in a story. This is exactly what happens here and is the fines example of 'deus ex machana' in a modern novel to date. If anything, this is a disservice to Dick's surreal novel of which this is a sequel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Jeter does a great job of pulling apart Dick's favorite puzzel: What is real? In this thriller several characters must confront the question: Am I human or replicant? The writer's answer is always the same, it doesn't really matter. Deckard, having fallen in love with the replicant, Rachel, realized he couldn't keep on retiring this new species of man. He realized that hunting replicants had turned him into something far uglier than any replicant. Rachel's templant (model), named Sarah, sets out to win the love of Deckard. Pretending to be the dying replicant, Rachel, Sarah tells him how her Uncle, Eldon Tyrell, used Rachel to commit computer incest with her likeness. 'He killed me, slowly, from the inside out.' At that moment Deckard realizes that she has suffered enough. He accepts Sarah's sacrifice, that she is willing to play the role of the dead replicant, Rachel, in order to win his love.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
