The Man in the High Castle // Philip K. Dick.


Indeed, an electrifying read about an alternative universal where the Axis Powers (Nazi Germany and Imperialistic Japan) won WWII. The story weaves three seemingly separate plots that each suffers their own turmoils about identity, safety, truth, and morality. Will we act moral when we have been living a lie? Will we embrace the truth of our identity? Will we sacrifice safety for truth? This book has a perplexing ending (especially, chapters 14 and 15), along with its constant plot jumps, so it is advised to keep in mind the above listed themes.
