This is my fourth and final paper I chose to read The Man in the High Castle simply because of availability of the book It was an excellent choice in my opinion Im probably not the only one whos liked the book as it has apparently won a Hugo The Nazis and the Japanese won Second World War and now rule the world Isnt that so No thats not true Consult the oracle if you dont believe me However imagine that it would be so Actually you dont have to Philip K Dick has already imagined it for you and chronicled a selected set of events into The Man in the High Castle Most of the story takes place in San Francisco Germany is maybe visited once and Japan not at all There is no need really as the presence of these countries is strongly felt in the US The whole planet has been divided between the Nazis and the Japanese and there are planes for other planets as well The story is not just about oppression under Nazi rule as one might expect No a lot of it is about American artifacts for example The actions of the Nazis do have a negative effect on many peoples lives maybe even on their own People are forced to act in ways they believe they shouldnt and this is not good for the spirit Need for spiritual guidance is evident Pretty much everyone whose lives the book describes in any detail turns to an oracle for guidance The oracle is I Ching Book of Changes the Fifth Book of Confucian wisdom This book is as important a part of The Man in the High Castle as the Nazis are And no wonder if people refer to the oracle as it never seems to be wrong It even knows the truth about the world Fascinating I Ching is not the only important book in the book there
