Philip K. Dick ”The Man in the High Castle”

216363

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

It’s America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some 20 years earlier the United States lost a war, and is now occupied jointly by Nazi Germany and Japan.

This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to awake.

Mana recenzija/My review

Alternatīvā vēsture par Otrā pasaules kara iznākumu, kur panākumus gūst nevis sabiedrotie, bet gan Vācija un Japāna. Ar zinātniskās fantastikas piesitienu tādā ziņā, ka abas valstis aktīvi pēcāk pievērsušās plašajām Visumam.

Netrūkst dažādu tēlu gan amizanti kā pārdevēji, tie kas iet no vienām durvīm uz citām, gan to, kas cenšas izmainīt/saprast esošo kārtību, un, vai būtu varējis būt citādāk. Turklāt ASV teritorija sadalīta vairākās kontroles zonās un nav vienota.

Vīrs augstajā pilī līdz pat noslēgumam ir noslēpumains autors grāmatai, kura pati šajā pasaulē ir liekama alternatīvās vēstures kastītē, vēstot tieši par sabiedroto uzvaru, Vācijas un Japānas sakāvi. Loģiski rodas jautājums, kur viņš radis tādus faktus un ideju vispār, kuri minēti viņa stāstā, kas izrādās, saistās ar pārdabisko un orākulu.

                                                                                                                                                

Alternate history about the Second World War and the outcome in which Germany and Japan are victorious and not the allies. With just some sci-fi as both countries after that sets their attention to Universe.

There are many different characters in this world like amusing salesmen or those who try to understand the world they are in. Plus the USA is divided in zones and isn’t one whole country.

The man in the High Castle throughout there is some mysterious writer whose book itself could classified as alternative history in their world but not in ours. Logically you would have questions about how he got the facts and idea mentioned in his book. To this there is a very supernatural explanation related to oracle.
