Join us for the first meeting of our classic science-fiction book club! We will be meeting every month, starting in June, reading a different classic in the genre each session.

About the event

For our first month, we will be discussing Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, a 1960s title that inspired the cult classic movie Blade Runner. Set in a post-war dystopian world, this book follows a bounty hunter whose job is to “retire” androids. As the events of the novel progress, Rick Deckard comes to question the morality of his profession while his reality is shaken as he questions what is real and what is artificial, and whether it even matters.

This is a super quick and easy read but is thought-provoking despite its short length. Meditating on what it means to be human and the value of reality versus the artificial, this is a philosophical novel that will make one think about how humans interact with one another and about the things that truly matter in life.

It also has robots and action and electric sheep!

Books are available to purchase in store if you do not already own a copy.

There will be a limited number of spaces available so, if you are interested, please pop into store or email us at aberdeen@waterstones.com so that we can take down some details to reserve your space. Our first meeting will be at 5.30pm on Wednesday 26th June in the cafe. We hope to see you then!
