Strange Eden is about a man that sets out to explore an uncharted planet, and realizes he isn’t the first one there.

NON SPOILER SUMMARY

Brent is excited to get his hands dirty in the vast green wilderness that, according to all the current start charts, has never been explored. He sets out into the dense, rolling jungle and encounters a wide variety of life. Plants, animals, birds, all foreign to his eye. And just as he is congratulating himself on being the first person to set foot there, he sees something very disturbing… a house.

MY THOUGHTS

Philip K. Dick is very adept at making the reader feel the emotions of the characters in his stories. I love getting into a character’s head, to see what they see, hear what they hear, touch what they touch. While all stories have a setting, I think it takes a talented writer to make you feel like YOU are the character. I enjoyed Strange Eden, being in a wild and beautiful place, feeling the shock of discovering I wasn’t the first one there, and the pure delight at meeting the other inhabitant of this world.
