"I have never seen [its] theme handled with greater technical dexterity or given more psychological meaning."-- Fantasy and Science Fiction

When a routine tour of a particle accelerator goes awry, Jack Hamilton and the rest of his tour group find themselves in a world ruled by Old Testament morality, where the smallest infraction can bring about a plague of locusts. Escape from that world is not the end, though, as they plunge into a Communist dystopia and a world where everything is an enemy.

Philip K. Dick was aggressively individualistic and no worldview is safe from his acerbic and hilarious take downs. Eye in the Sky blends the thrills and the jokes to craft a startling morality lesson hidden inside a comedy.

Given how prolific P.K. Dick was, they can't all be winners. This is one his earlier books, written in the 50s, and while is has some intriguing ideas, it generally falls flat. You'd have to be a pretty big Dick fan to like this one.
