This is a re-read for me and perhaps not exactly my favorite of his last and greatest sequence of linked novels that began with VALIS, but it is still profound and beautiful.

Truly, it is a very good book, but it stands as both a major departure from PKD's normal fiction. That's to say, it's a novel that explores all the same themes that he's is known for, but he does it in a very firmly grounded and mainstream way that very much does NOT touch upon his more traditional SF style.

Suicide, madness, drug use, heavy intellectualism comes right to the fore... but rather than deal with it from inside the person most afflicted with it or get funky with some really strange happenings, we follow Timothy Archer's daughter in law, Angel, as she tries to come to grips with the grief of losing Tim along with all of Tim's friends.

Sound simple? Well, grief isn't simple and Tim's life and intellect was pretty fantastic and the impact he had upon everyone was pretty profound. His struggles with faith and his eventually giving up the cloth and going to great lengths, intellectual or otherwise, to discover the real truth about Jesus, has long term effects on everyone.

That's not to say there isn't a lot of really strange things happening here, however, but they're all based on reality and scholarship and the deepest quest for meaning that anyone can or ought to strive.

What if Christianity was a mushroom cult, that systematic drug use and hallucinations WAS the body of Christ? That all the early Christians were, after all, drug pushers? I love it. It's even based on some really impressive scholarship. But beyond that, there's also the idea that this mushroom also opens our minds to see the truth of reality and in so doing, allows us to link-in with the system of the universe and carry on past death for real. So, blithe and humorous assumptions aside, this was the real aspect of faith and the promise... and the tragedy is... that we lost this bridge.

Even so, my takeaway from this book, with this topic, is only a single feature in a very rich tapestry of characterizations, explorations, and fundamental human experience. Don't take my word for it. Read it with the other VALIS novels and get really surprised that this was so mainstream. I know I was.

And now I really can't wait to pick up Radio Free Albemuth again! It, perhaps more than all the rest, is the capstone of all these ideas and it is a firm adventure in revolution and science fiction greatness as well! All the ideas and themes come back in full force.

What a fantastic storyteller! ( )

A great ride through Philip K. Dick's mind. This is a novel not to be missed for those who enjoy his work. The scenes are palatable, and the plot wanders- but it always comes back to where it needs to be. This is a glimpse into what made Dick what he was. I believe it was very self-autobiographical and the revealing that goes on throughout the duration of the book is immense and, almost, heartfelt. Dick is trying to explain something here, both to himself and the reader. Through this, he paints a portrait of himself. That is commendable and the book is worthwhile.

4.5 stars. This was worth reading the whole trilogy for. ( )

For years I avoided reading anything by Phillip K. Dick. I have always liked the movie "Bladerunner" (though I haven't read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" on which it is based. That movie was dark, and I didn't really want to read anything much darker. Also, I had heard that most of Dick's other works were way weirder than Bladerunner/Androids.

A few months ago I finally gave in. I started with Ubik. That was some weird stuff. I am not completely convinced that Joe is dead and Runciter is alive. Or was it the other way around?

For various reasons, I decided to to try The Transmigration of Timothy Archer next. I can say two things about this book right off the bat - what this book is not: science fiction; and what this book is: some weird-ass shit. I'm not usually prone to foul language in my reviews, but that's the only way I can put it.

Berkeley CA in the seventies, multiple suicides, people coming (or maybe not coming) back from the dead, long discourses on philosophy and theology (Bishop George Berkeley comes across as pretty sane - previously I had thought him a lunatic), a character who is actually a lunatic (maybe all the characters are lunatics?), even an Alan Watts figure.

If you're looking for futuristic sci-fi, you won't find it here. The only technology is either early personal computers or cars from the late 1970's. If you're looking for meditations on the nature of reality, this is a book for you. ( )

This is a challenging, yet compelling third book of the VALIS trilogy, although it stands alone as a novel. It's an empowering and intellectual glimpse into the interpretation of madness, theology and philosophical illusion. Mind twisting, thought provoking and at times disturbing; the obsession with God and metaphysics, schizophrenia and suicide, and the characters themselves drove this book for me and it has definitely made me think and perceive intellect in a new way. Absolutely fantastic...... ( )

The two most important thing you have to know about one of the last PKD novel, that it's not a SF and it's mostly recommended to 'advanced 'fans only. But they will enjoy this mystic-philosophic family story written in the well known Dick style. ( )
