Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle provides a take on the parallel near-pat where Germany and Japan won the war. I have a hard time getting into, perhaps even appreciating, the I Ching aspects of the story, but otherwise really enjoyed the read. It’s interesting not so much in the way the alternative world ends up, but how the alternative world will be. The themes are tied together cleverly, and the structure and frame provided in the story is rich and textured. 7/10.
