Reviews: THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE by Philip K. Dick

Becky from Becky’s Book Reviews read The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick, which counts toward the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from her review:

What can I say about this one? Really. An alternative reality is created, a reality in which the Axis powers won World War II. The United States? Not so united. They’ve been divided–some being more occupied than others–between Germany and Japan. Life isn’t all bad–well, unless you happen to be Jewish or black. For this reason, it is better to be on the Japanese side of the border. (Don’t even ask what the Germans did to Africa.) This nightmarish reality is all too real for the handful of characters the reader meets. (Yes, a few of the characters are Jewish.)

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. This book is all about choices–ethical and moral questions that these characters have to answer.
