But when&nbsphis team is ambushed by a rival, he is gravely injured.&nbsp Soon, the surviving members of the team begin experiencing some strange phenomena, like Runciter's face appearing on coins and the world seeming to move backward in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind-bending Amazing. Takes a while to adjust back top reality after putting it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit of a thrill ride Another classic sci-fi book that feels a little like the author was making it up as he was writing, but in this case the story was interesting enough that the stream of consciousness thing actually knid of works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Just started reading Philip K Dick's books and I gotta say I am a huge fan! There's a lot of parallel themes in his novels and similar things in multiple worlds (I just finished reading Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep). The worlds he builds are genuinely so rich and complex - I find myself completely enthralled in his books. Ubik was really good, super plot heavy and thrilling. Things change at a quick pace and you find yourself hanging onto every word to find out what happens next. I had to keep rereading to keep up with all the plot twists. I didn't particularly like the protagonist in this novel but still found it a great read!
