My thought, as summed in as short as possible, is that Dick’s speculative novel are restrained. He isn’t writing of a resistance. He doesn’t write of the extremities of this post-Axis victory America, but of the day-to-day. The everyday lives of a few people on all sides of the spectrum. And it was refreshing to an extent.
I almost wish though, that we had gotten more of the intensive SF that Dick is famed for, in this case. I think people generally agree that The Man in the High Castle is one of his more muted works.
I still enjoyed it.
As of December 26th, 2015, I am currently reading Philip K. Dick’s speculative World War II novel, The Man in the High Castle.
