By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies build incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force.
Praise for Philip K. Dick

“A kind of pulp-fiction Kafka, a prophet.”- The New York Times

one of the Best books eher writen
do androids dream of electric sheep is one of the Best Books I ever heard, it's a great recording and it's a must read if you liked the movies, the story is completely different but it's a deep and enjoyable story.
some parts are predictable, but that's no problem for the story and is not caused by bad plot twist.
but don't expect the author to explain anything, you need to listen and form your own conclusions.
