Space Canon- A Life in Science Fiction

“It’s impossible to judge a copy, for we may be copies ourselves.” Claire L. Evans presents the novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? as a story about the failures of humans and determining what is real or fake in life. She made a point of the difficulty to distinguish the movie Blade Runner and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and how it creates the same idea of distinguishing between humans and android.  The idea that androids, “fake people”, have the same value as “real people” is one that depicts apart our society in this novel.  Claire believes that perception is what defines everything, such that because our understanding of a person is altered, we are then left with nothing to judge upon.

Claire L. Evans review of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, contains an audience of science fiction readers who relate to her readings through other novels or movies in the same genre. Her audience is clearly based off of science fiction fans who have the desire to keep up to date on the science culture and ideas. Her review of this novel is one that the audience is given questions to ponder on.  She creates depth and more meaning with the main question of what really is the difference and how can we know what that difference is if we cannot define between the two subjects?
