Right up front, this is not my favorite work by Dick (please refrain from the juvenile jokes at this point). That would be the The Man in the High Castle. But I guess that's also an obvious choice and I won't will your hearts over with that selection. I will say that the idea of an audio book was petulant to me until I got much older. Now, on the long cross country, drives (with my cat, in typical loser/loner fashion) I find audio books and talk radio much more appealing that anything else. Perhaps it's the desolation of driving through the barren Mid-West landscape pared with the oppressive isolation I just typically feel, which makes the sound of another human's voice (in talk, not singing, form) all that more appealing. Definitely I sign that I am old. Really, does anybody but an old person listen to things like this? So yeah, Philip K. Dick. I guess you already know about him. He wrote this.
