Hmm …

… When Falls the Coliseum — New Philip K. Dick novel too absurd to be believed.

The problem with this novel is its sheer unbelievability. The events depicted are simply absurd. For instance, we’re supposed to believe that the war-mongering, venal leader of the UniStat was for some reason given a World Peaceful Prize at the start of his term of office, yet Dick never sufficiently explains why any reputable organization would give him such an honor.

Well, has anyone ever sufficiently explained why Barack Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize at the start of his term in office?
