DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? by Philip K. Dick

DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP?

KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Dick's hero Deckard lives in a dying world where animals are a status symbol; you can dial an emotion to fit a mood and the Voigt-Kampff test for telling an android from its human counterpart appears to have become fallible. It's an empathy test...how would you respond to a purse made of homo sapiens baby hide? But it also seems that schizoids fit the android psychological (?) make-up. A problem for Deckard since he's an android bounty-hunter who only pauses long enough to go to bed with one of them. Even electric sheep could find greener pastures.
