A Scanner Darkly is a brilliant psychological and philosophical journey dealing with the nature of identity in the backdrop of drug culture. Philip K. Dick intersperses his philosophical musings into an intriguing chase story about users and abusers of the fatal drug Substance D. This richly layered novel will get you thinking not only about human nature, but the function of humans in the larger realm of time and space as well. This is one trip definitely worth taking.
