Daily Thoughts 03/13/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook today.

I have been reading a graphic novel of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?  Omnibus Edition on Hoopla Digital.  This graphic novel of the book is a bit different.  It seems to contain the entire text for the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick.  This makes the graphic novel 643 pages long and incredibly detailed in both its illustration and speech bubbles.  This makes for a captivating story and a very deep interpretation.  I think it is as good as watching Bladerunner the film adaptation of Do Android Dream of Electric Sheep.  It is well worth reading.

The graphic novel is illustrated by Tony Parker with Blond.  The illustrated part ends on p.549.  After this there is commentary and a set of all the cover illustrations.
