New York Times Reviews Androids Stage Adaptation

There was an interesting review of the staged adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? in Dec 3rd's New York Times - usually a very trustworthy source. Here's the line that should indicate to readers that this writer has no idea what he's talking about:

"Ridley Scott’s 1982 “Blade Runner” is a stylish action movie starring Harrison Ford as Deckard, a bounty hunter in pursuit of coolly attractive androids. Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?,” the 1968 book it’s based on, is a very different novel of ideas, at its essence about an unhappily married man." The emphasis is mine, the knumbskullery is all theirs.

If that didn't dissuade you from reading the review, go here.
