Maybe I’ll go where I can see stars, he said to himself as the car gained velocity and altitude; it headed away from San Francisco, toward the uninhabited desolation to the north. To the place where no living thing would go. Not unless it felt that the end had come.


Published in 1968, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? is perhaps the best known work of American Science fiction author, Philip K. Dick. Like most of PKD’s writing, the novel is a thought provoking tale that addresses human identity. In this instance, he explores the themes of what it means to be human, and what separates humans from their android creations.

In 1982 the book was famously adapted into (what is now) the highly overrated Hollywood film, Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott, starring Harrison Ford.

  1. Good quote, last paragraph of chapter 20 in the novel. Thanks for remembering to add the question mark to the title. It is quite important, as the novel becomes one possible answer to the interrogatory title. Do Androids Dream? IF they do, do they dream of electric sheep?
