Book Review-- The Man in the High Castle

The Man in the High Castle, a cult classic by Phillip K. Dick, illustrating what the world might be like if the Axis Powers, (i.e., Nazis and Japanese) won WWII. The story takes place in the United States, 15 years after the Axis Powers won the war. While the story is 'science fiction' by the literary sense, Dick actually examines and critiques American society. His attempts to illustrate society under a Nazi regime--racism-- and class divides under the Japanese is actually a reflection of the problems within American society during that time period. None-the-less, the book is still very entertaining with a thorough and detail story about life and the world under the Nazi and Japanese powers. I highly recommend this book.
