Philip K. Dick – VALIS (VALIS Trilogy #1) (Audiobook)

216377

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

VALIS is the first book in Philip K. Dick’s incomparable final trio of novels (the others being The Divine Invasion and The Transmigration of Timothy Archer). This disorienting and bleakly funny work is about a schizophrenic hero named Horselover Fat; the hidden mysteries of Gnostic Christianity; and reality as revealed through a pink laser. VALIS is a theological detective story, in which God is both a missing person and the perpetrator of the ultimate crime.

Mana recenzija (pārdomas)/My (thoughts) review

Vēl viena neparasti dīvaina grāmata no Filipa Dika puses. Daudzās recenzijās uzsvērta viņa loma šinī žanrā, bet šoreiz tomēr sanācis aizšaut garām.

Stāsta pamatā Horselover Fat tēla murgojumi reliģiskajā tēmā. Filozofēšana iet uz pilnu klapi, un kristietība nav vienīgā reliģiskā ticība, kura tiek skarta un apspriesta. Notikumu skatpunkts gan mums tiek pasniegts no cita tēla, bet tik un tā es teiktu, ka, ja Horsloveram ir šizofrēnija, tad nu vieglā formā tas nava.

Vienā mirklī jau kārtīgi sāka krist uz nerviem he said, she said + beigas ar apendiksu pilnīgi liekas. Par to, kurā vietā šis ir detektīvs, grūti spriest, un par to, kas ir VALIS nemaz nesākšu.

Jāatzīstas, ka jau pēc apraksta šķita, ka diez vai būs manā gaumē, tāpēc iespējams un visticamāk šāda stila scifi nav mana tējas tase.

***************************************

Another weird book by Philip K. Dick. In many reviews it’s accented his role in the beginning of this genre but this book is a big miss.

The main story is about Horselover Fat and his delirious ramblings about religion. This philosophical discussion goes on and on, and Christianity isn’t the only religious belief that is touched. The POV though is from another character but anyway I would say that schizophrenia for Horselover Fat isn’t a mild one.

At one point was getting really annoyed about frequently used he said or she said. Plus the appendix at the end was completely pointless. And in what world this is a detective, I don’t know; also about what is VALIS I’m not even going to start.

I have to admit that after reading the synopsis I had already my doubts about this book, so maybe and probably this kind of sci-fi isn’t my cup of tea.
