    Inhaltsangabe

    When a repairman accidentally discovers a parallel universe, everyone sees it as an opportunity, whether as a way to ease Earth’s overcrowding, set up a personal kingdom, or hide an inconvenient mistress. But when a civilization is found already living there, the people on this side of the crack are sent scrambling to discover their motives. Will these parallel humans come in peace? Or are they just as corrupt and ill-intentioned as the people of this world?

    ©1994 Laura Coelho, Christopher Dick, and Isa Hackett (P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    Mostly timeless - a PKD take on racism

    PKD wrote this novel half a century ago, when racism in the US was more open, more direct and more intense than today. The novel has a lot of things to say on the topic, and too few are really outdated. That said, this novel is mostly a fine SF novel. We have the usual menagerie of dimensional travellers, telepaths, corporate crooks, political crooks, unaligned simply greedy crooks, social problems (overpopulation and racism, but also poverty and drugs), questionable solutions (like mandatory abortions and voluntary long-term freezing, as well as the colonization of sterile worlds). An Afro-American president was pure SF in 1966, and even legal abortions were mostly a thing of the future in the US. Imagine that a parallel Earth is discovered - a seemingly pristine world that is not overpopulated, actually, one without a single homo sapiens. Imagine how useful this would be to a lot of crooks. Imagine that, in the end, the new world comes with a nasty surprise that makes 1960s style racism so obviously absurd that even the racists drop the "idea"... - This is not PKD's best novel (I'd recommend UBIK, Flow My Tears and Bladerunner if you never read/heard anything by PKD before), and in parts, it feels a bit dated. But even a second-class novel by PKD is still superb SF. The performance of the voice actor is superb, clear and crisp. And if you didn't find this review too complicated, the English is definitely not above your level, either.
