In this Hugo Awardwinning alternative history classicthe basis for the Amazon Original seriesthe United States lost World War II and was subsequently divided between the Germans in the East and the Japanese in the West.
It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In this world, we meet characters like Frank Frink, a dealer of counterfeit Americana who is himself hiding his Jewish ancestry; Nobusuke Tagomi, the Japanese trade minister in San Francisco, unsure of his standing within the bureaucracy and Japan's with Germany; and Juliana Frink, Frank's ex-wife, who may be more important than she realizes.
These seemingly disparate characters gradually realize their connections to each other just as they realize that something is not quite right about their world. And it seems as though the answers might lie with Hawthorne Abendsen, a mysterious and reclusive author, whose best-selling novel describes a world in which the US won the War... The Man in the High Castle is Dick at his best, giving readers a harrowing vision of the world that almost was.
"The single most resonant and carefully imagined book of Dick's career." New York Times

This book portrays a intriguing view of the world and paints a vivid picture of the competing superpowers and the effect it has on the world and even more so, it's inhabitants. I have two issues with it though.

Firstly, there is too much navel gazing, nearly all the the characters seem to be weighed down with internal angst about their social position. This personal angst is a character trait common to Dick and is not in itself a bad thing, but there is too much of it in this book.

Secondly, there is no real story. There are the stories of a number of individuals, that you hope will be tied together in a coherent ending, but that doesn't really happen. Some of the stories overlap, but nothing comes to a meaningful conclusion, the book ends and that's that.

The writing has the clunkiness of a hastily written first draft: Sketchy scenes, inconsistent characterization. And yet... the [b:The Man in the High Castle|216363|The Man in the High Castle|Philip K. Dick|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1448756803s/216363.jpg|2398287] is compelling. This is a thoughtful, philosophical novel, very different from the Amazon video series it inspired. Most of the action occurs internally. The erratic actions and abrupt scene shifts create a dizzy disorientation. What is real? What is fantasy? The reader, like the characters in the story, cannot be sure. By the odd, surreal conclusion, I felt as though I had lived this story. Maybe I still do. ( )

Dick is entertaining us about reality and madness, time and death, sin and salvation.... We have our own homegrown Borges.

Philip K. Dick's best books always describe a future that is both entirely recognizable and utterly unimaginable.

Philip K. Dick... has chosen to handle... material too nutty to accept, too admonitory to forget, too haunting to abandon.

They know a million tricks, those novelists...Appeals to the base lusts that hide in everyone no matter how respectable on the surface. Yes, the novelist knows humanity how worthless they are, ruled by their testicles, swayed by cowardice, selling out every cause because of their greed...all he's got to do is thump on the drum, and there's the response. And he laughing of course, behind his hand at the effect he gets. (p. 128)
At six-fifteen in the evening she finished the book. I wonder if Joe got to the end of it? she wondered. There's so much more in it than he understood. What is it Abendsen wanted to say? Nothing about his make-believe world. Am I the only one who knows? I'll bet I am; nobody else really understands Grasshopper but me - they just imagine they do.
