    "I was putting off buying this due to it having reviews like "confusing ending" however when watched the series on Amazon I was amazed and stunned at the same time. And i figured with all books and movies/tv adaptations the book is always better.We always see the commercials on tv for the what 'ifs' about history what if the Nazis won the war whats if World War II ended entirely different. We don't know for sure how this would actually have turned out but PKD offers some amazing insight to what it would have been like. Each character has there own unique persona and unique motives for what they are really out to get. Every character is masterfully developed. PKD doesn't just focus on the character's PKD is able to fully capture you imagination and create a beautifully horrid reality inside your mind as you read. This is one of the books that you will read reread and still be wondering about what truly happened or what the book was really about. One of the most complex and inciting books I have read and loved so deeply in a long time. Overall if you like alternative-history or books with complex backgrounds and amazing story's you should be sure to read this."

    "The Man in the High Castle is a novel by Philip K. Dick that explores an alternate history wherein the Axis Powers won WWII. A chilling depiction of a dystopian America in the 1960's as it is divided between Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan."

    "The story is more about chasing a spiritual, zen-like concept where everything is related to a Feng Shui existential well-being.It is truly a book only the critic could dare love. Not a best classic science fiction novel."

    "I've always loved fiction, sci-fi, and metafictional novels! The man in the high castle, by Philip Dick, is a great fit for someone like myself! This genre can go a number of different directions, but this book stays true to the metaficiton genre! I would definitely recommend this to a few of my friends, who I know share my interests!"

    "Ohhhhh, Si-Fi. I'm really not a fan, however this book sounds very interesting. Creating a new world order and rewriting history all in one book. Si-Fi freaks me out. "

    "It was pretty boring to read overall. I am not a big fan of old literature and this is just that. Sometimes I can not understand the language they are talking in. It seems to go on forever most of the time. I can't really see a way out of a chapter without questioning what I just read at that time."

    "This book is really great, but it is not like the tv series so do not confuse the two, the book is really good, and I highly recommend it for its classic read. It gives you a glimpse of what the world would be like if the allies had lost the war and its really scary and amazing at the same time, I think this is an amazing book and really fun to read."

    "Man in High Castle is a must read. They've tried to adapt it to the screen more than once, they don't do that with bad books. It's a great story of espionage, and "what could have been""

    "I was actually looking for a nonfiction book, so I clearly missed. Don't get me wrong, it's a great book, but this is science fiction all the way. Here, the Nazis won, and have taken over the world. Happily, this didn't happen in real life!"

    "This will do the trick, The Man in the High Castle is a fantastic look at dystopian life (don't we have enough of it in our current age though?). Read this first, then watch the show, books are better. And yes, this is fantastic if you're into revisionist history."

    "This book is simply amazing as I didn't see the twist coming when I began reading. It kept me glued to the pages and engaged, which is something I don't normally experience with Hugo Award books."

    "I truly loved this book, despite the fact that I am not really a fan/follower of the science fiction genre. However, Mr. Dick made his invented world seem so real it really startled me. I think he was also great in portraying the inner world (thoughts and doubts) of most, if not all, of the characters in this novel. He clearly has a very intelligent and perceptive approach to History."
