Ubik
by Philip K. Dick
(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(4,797)
Philip K. Dick's searing metaphysical comedy of death and salvation is a tour de force of panoramic menace and unfettered slapstick, in which the departed give business advice, shop for their next incarnation, and run the continual risk of dying yet again.

Very entertaining little book that keeps you turning pages until it finishes... and then it punches you
The overall philosophical world building is impressive, creating a new world that starts being confusing, then suddenly feels just right. Twists and turns are well paced, while not forced (until the end) and by the time ‘big reveals’ are presented, they feel organic and, I assume, expected by most readers.

It plays with ideas high level concepts that movies like Inception have brought to the mainstream, and it did so decades before the movie.

Sometimes it gets a bit lost in missable internal monologues, but it is just in 2/3 instances

Highly recommended
