A Scanner Darkly



I read it. It was the last of his books I wanted to read so I left it. Personally I did not like The Man in the High Castle. I found it the least interesting of all of his books but, this is what I wrote in my diary about A Scanner Darkly –

‘I finally read ‘A Scanner Darkly. It was annoying at first and then became funny and very moving. Poor PKD. Poor nothing. He’s grand I’m sure.
I downloaded Valis and understand it a lot better this time due to reading a lot of his Exegesis. He had the power to see how daft he must have looked.
His ideas though- so wonderful.
He communicates more to me than any other author.
The strangeness and isolation of life through this awkward experience.
I’m like him.
An outsider always.’
