: Do Androids Dream of Electric sheep? is the starting point of the film we all love, written by Phillip K Dick, published in 1968, the film is pretty faithful to the novel, with a few differences, the biggest of those to me was the use of Animals, in novel the full story is pushed along by Deckard wanting a proper animal, the ultimate status symbol after the nuclear war that has killed most of them, he riles through a catalogue from a pet store, phoning the pet store and keeping count of what he can afford if he kills all the replicants and gets the associated bounty’s. I focused the main part of my print on this; the ostrich, being one of the desired animals, while the spider is related how the replicates treat animals near the end of the novel, without empathy.
