Pros:One of Philip K Dick's Best novels!

Cons:I can't think of any!

The Bottom Line: Read this Book. It's a great and underappricated Philip K Dick novel!


Now Wait For Last Year is absolutely one of my favorite Philip K Dick novels. This book has all the quintessential Philip K Dick features; Aliens, Drugs, Time Travel, Alternative Futures, Betrayal and Intergactic Politics.

The novel was written in 1963 right after he wrote "A Crack in Space" (which I also love). So it is one of his earlier works written at the time that Philip K Dick was his most prolific.

The plot of Now Wait For Last Year revolves around the Earth - Lilistar politics, the war with the Reegs, the drug JJ-180 which causes time travel and Dr. Eric Sweetscent who basically keeps getting caught in situations he does not want to be in.

I know it sounds crazy when I write out like that but believe me it all comes together in a brilliant way as the novel explores the classic Dick theme of of the meaning of reality. 

It is both a funny and thrilling book and I have to admit I could not put it down once I started reading it.

I am a big Philip K Dick fan but this novel is without a doubt my favorite. It has all the features, characteristics and complexities you would want in a science fiction novel without seeming too science geeky.

It's also an ideal novel for someone just learning about Philip K Dick to read.
