Ubik (/ˈjuːbɪk/ YOO-bik) is a 1969 science fiction novel by American writer Philip K. Dick. It is one of Dick's most acclaimed novels. In 2009, it was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest novels since 1923. In his review for Time, critic Lev Grossman described it as “a deeply unsettling existential horror story, a nightmare you'll never be sure you've woken up from”. // “... the group begins to experience strange shifts in reality. Consumables, such as milk and cigarettes, begin to deteriorate prematurely. Also, the group sees Runciter's face on coins and receives strange messages from him in writing and on television. Most of these messages imply that Runciter is in fact alive, while the others are in half-life, or 'cold-pac' as it is informally called. Group members who separate from the group are found dead, in a gruesome state of decomposition.”
Como aprendi inglês
Reminiscências sobre meu aprendizado da língua durante as décadas de 80 e 90, quando o material em inglês não era tão facilmente acessível.
