A Scanner Darkly
A Scanner Darkly was just awful. Awful in it's subject content. I am pretty rigid in my stance on drugs and alcohol (hate, hate, hate it!), so reading a whole fictionary book about users was a real chore for me. And it was predictable too, though some of the conversations between the characters that were high was interesting (in print! If I had to actually listen to this kind of talk, say like in the movie with Keanu Reeves, I would be shutting that off in a very rapid manner).
Just imagine what Dick would have been capable of if he hadn't been a user himself?
