Quote from: AstronautClock;1935224whats your genre
Quote from: GreyClock;1935226I don't know. I mean how different is it from Blade Runner?
Quote from: PezDispenserclock;1948598Abba, I might not smoke weed, but I experiancing it being hit with a crowbar on a modded TTT server. Flashing colours, screen flipped, screen flying. Yup, I know how it\'s like.
Quote from: GreyClock;1935314The book I wanted to order initially was FantÃƒÂ´mas by Allain & Souvestre. I decided to also order Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Putting me over the free shipping threshold, but then I saw a ten euro five book set of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so I knew I had to order that as well. Then I remembered I wanted to read Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, saw a really cheap version of Candide by Voltaire and came across a book called Confessions of an English Opium-Eater by Thomas De Quincey, which I ordered based on the title alone. So I should be all set for a while.
Quote from: Losperman;1935315Awesome. Let me know what you think of Androids. I don't know many people who've read it, but I liked it so much that I'm quite interested to hear what you think of it.

Quote from: GreyClock;1936339In the book electric animals and real animals are much more prominent and much more significant.
QuoteMaybe you can shed some light on a thing or two though: the first is John Isidore. He didn't seem all that dumb to me? Sure he stuttered a bit when stressed, but his inner thoughts didn't seem to conform to his chickenhead status. I spent the entire book expecting some sort of reveal about him, and others like him, not being allowed to emigrate for some other reason. There were hints that Mars was pretty awful, but it's never really worked out. He seemed like a really nice person (the cat, helping the andys, the spider) which ties in with theme of the book. In the end he just wants to move to a more populated area and be around people again, but he already had a job where he interacted with other people? Maybe I'm missing something, or maybe that's a bigger deal than I think?
QuoteA second thing I wondered about was how Deckard knew Kadalyi was Polokov? One minute they were talking about his gun, the next he's asking him about his identity, but the wrong way around. Was that a trick? Or did Deckard see Polokov's poop sheet (ha ha) or something earlier? (I seem to remember something about humans not being allowed to return to earth, maybe that's how Deckard knew, cause Polokov said he got the gun on Mars?)
QuoteThe third and last thing was about the androids, what was their motivation? The colonies seemed to be pretty awful sure, but the Baty's and Pris don't seem to have any real goal. Some androids are trying to blend in (Luba Luft), but to what purpose exactly? Pretty elaborate setups too, I mean a whole second police force? Roy is described as some sort of spiritual leader figure but it didn't really come across? In the movie I bought that, and there they are on a clear mission to fix their short lifespan. This is mentioned in the book in a conversation with Rachel, but the fugitives never mention it? Also the final fight seemed a little anti-climactic, Nexus-6 were supposed to be badass but Roy missed twice? (Yeah, Mercer said the first one would be the hardest, but come on.) What are your thoughts on all this?
