A Scanner Darkly

A Scanner DarklyA Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An undercover police officer struggles with losing his own identity as he investigates a dangerous new drug to which he himself has become addicted.

Philip K. Dick himself struggled with schizophrenia, and the book is dedicated to the friends he lost to drug addiction. That said, it's a fantastic science fiction ride that will leave you feeling sad and thoughtful by the end.
