Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? aka Blade Runner introduces Rick Deckard, a bounty hunter who is tasked with bringing in androids. I rate this a 5/5.
Plot: You need to round up some androids. The trouble is, there’s no way to distinguish an android from a human. Or is there?
Craft: The writing is strong. Nice use of description and dialogue. Strong plot.
Technology: Not so much. The biggest thing is that androids have progressed to the point where they are nearly impossible to spot – and lethal when they’re annoyed.
Characters: The characters drive this story. They form a unique cast.
Cultural References: The urge for pets is as strong as it is today. Only problem is, the pets are not quite alive.
Bottom Line: There is one scene where androids interact with humans that still haunts me.
