Total Recall
Reviewed in the United States on September 15, 2013
arrived quickly, in great shape, well packed, and it exceeded my expectations.. I have to say thanks, for such a good copy of an out of print book. (at least I think it''s out of print)
I had no idea Piers Anthony wrote this. I saw the movie quite some time ago.

The film "Total Recall" is actually one of the more thought-provoking films of the 1990s, one whose intelligence was largely ignored by the public because it starred Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The fact is, despite all its explosions, it is no less complex at its core than Vanilla Sky or Memento....

The Piers Anthony novel is well-written and quickly paced, but I got the impression that they commissioned Anthony to churn out a novelized version of the screenplay to coincide with the film''s release. It''s certainly a decent read, but if you didn''t like the movie, you probably won''t love the book.

This is an excellent book for those who saw the movie and thought "This idea had potential." The Piers Anthony version of this story is superior to both the movie and the screen play. This book gives insight into the mind of a alien race and what it might expect from a species that considers itself mature enough for space travel. Mr. Anthony puts a relatively new face on the oft used concept of colonialism extended to interplanetary colonization. We see that the downtrodden are not always forgotten. We are also given the opportunity to wrestle with the question, of what makes a person themselves; is it ones actions(past, present, or future) or is it ones thoughts and ideas (remembered and forgotten). While the "Total Recall" story is taken from a short story entitled, "We can remember it for you wholesale." Piers Anthony offers a fresh look at the timeless concepts.

Roughly the first half of the book follows the movie pretty closely, while the second half strays far and covers new material. The first half of the book is awful. I came very close to putting the book down for good before getting through it, but the second half picks up and becomes compelling.

I am interested to learn if anyone else observed this, or if I was suffering from extremely poor reading comprehension that day, but I believe there is an editing problem whereby two slightly different versions of the same ''scene'' were both included in the book. If you are going to read this book yourself, look out for it: by my reading, the sex scene occurs twice back to back, with slight changes, and with no transitional language or time passing between. There is no in-story reason I can think of for the same event to be told twice in a row. On top of that, the writing is unbelievably awkward.

Make no mistake, it is not just this snafu which makes the first half of the novel bad. If you were to tell me that an intern with no writing experience wrote the first half, and a widely read veteran writer of science fiction wrote the second half, I would believe you.

Overall, it leaves the impression of an author who struggled to make the re-telling of the movie, but who did finally gain momentum when he ventured off the script, and of a book completely unedited or proofread.

Warning about HC and PB Editions

While I do not have both copies to compare, I seem to remember that the HC and PB editions are different. The HC edition was based on the proposed screen play before the movie was actually made. After it was published, the rights to the movie was sold to another studio which altered the script when it was filmed. The PB edition was then edited by Mr. Anthony to be in sync with the actual filmed version. Thus you get the original proposed script if/when you buy the HC edition and the filmed storyline when you buy the PB edition.

The book by Anthony Pier is different from the movie, the first half is relatively the same, but the second half seems almost like a different thing. The ending, although the outcome is the same, is executed differently. The ending is actually explained with some intelligence too, and entire sub-plots are in the book.

The short story by Philip K. Dick, "We''ll remember it for you wholesale" was the inspiration for this book.

A good entertaining read, although it''s hard to read the book without imagining Arnold Schwarzeneggar''s blazing Austrian accent speaking the dialogue.

I bought the paperback version of this, thinking it was something written by Piers Anthony. I was disappointed to find it was identical to the movie, just written in a book word for word, every word and occurrence was identical with the film. I was very disappointed. I do not recommend the paperback version. As others have proposed that the hardcover version has some differences from the actual film (being based on the proposed script, before it was actually produced), I''d recommend buying hardcover over the paperback, if it truly is different. Better yet, get the PKD short story the movie is based on, if you can find it, that is absolutely stunning.

and definitely one of my favourites. A little late in realising that there was a novel, 21 years later, but I thought I would give it a try. As would be expected it is heavily based on the screenplay, but it does divert, expand and add in a quite detailed plotline involving the alien artefacts. To begin with the book practically mirrors the film including the dialogue, although it does start with an alternative scene on the surface of Mars. As would be expected of a book it is more detailed than anything a film could convey and Quaid''s thoughts are much expanded upon and give a greater insight into the character whilst also explaining some of his onscreen behaviour. He is certainly deeper than Arnie portrayed him. As the book progresses more detail is given of off screen events, such as what happens at Rekall post Quaid visit and who the man with the suitcase was, and sections added, such as a chapter on the shuttle journey between Earth and Mars when Quaid is in his fat woman disguise. A major addition to the storyline is the previously mentioned alien artefacts and a whole chapter near the end is dedicated to expanding on what Quaid learns when Kuato scans his mind. There is no way that the detail in this chapter could have been in the film and I personally think that whilst it was interesting it was rather silly and is weaker than the screenplay. And why I rate it a 4. Watching the film straight after the book certainly enhanced my enjoyment as I could add in the detail that was in it. It doesn''t map across exactly, but what does are useful additions to the story. For what this can now be got for, if like me you can never tire of watching the film, it can only add to what is already a masterpiece of science fiction film making.
