Coming at the book via the film, I could not help but compare. I was particularly intrigued with the description of the ‘chicken heads’ and the androids and the idea of humanity. This reminded me of H.G. Wells comparison of the animals and the people in foreign ports in The Island of Dr Moreau.
As with the film, the book asks many questions. How do we know what is real? What does it mean to be human? How do we know who we can trust?
