Ubik by Philip K. Dick (1979)

Ubik is one of Dick’s most acclaimed novels. It was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest novels since 1923. …

The novel is set in the year 1992, by when humanity has colonized the Moon and psychic powers are common. …

Each chapter is introduced by a commercial advertising Ubik as a different product serving a specific use. The last chapter is introduced by Ubik claiming that it has created and directed the universe …

It might be brilliant. But — for me — I found it too confusing. Difficult to follow.

I never finished it.
