STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Quirky Time Travelling Madness. Kept me on my toes.
💛 This is complete insanity and I am right there with it. There are mind readers and people who act as counter forces to those mind readers, funeral homes where the living speak to the dead, all made to seem perfectly normal and part of everyday business. And then we start travelling back in time. Like I said, it’s madness. It’s also witty and grotesque and smart.
💜 There’s a touch of Brave New World, a bit of Fahrenheit 451 in this. Even a bit of Stephen King. In terms of more current authors, Adrian Tchaikovsky strikes a similar note in Cage of Souls.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 This is one of those stories that works best as an audiobook. Luke Daniels delivers an outstanding performance full of outlandish voices and brimming with energy. He embodies the dry wit as intended by PJD to a tee.

Soon, though, the surviving members of the team begin experiencing some strange phenomena, such as Runciter's face appearing on coins and the world seeming to move backward in time. As consumables deteriorate and technology gets ever more primitive, the group needs to find out what is causing the shifts and what a mysterious product called Ubik has to do with it all.
