A uestion of Perspective Roog is one of Philip K Dick s earlier short stories and it was first published in 1953 You will definitely experience its full effect best only if you first read the story itself and then start looking at reviews so in case you are reading this go to the story first and then if you are still interested click on the spoiler link belowview spoilerNow did you run through the same gamut of feelings I did At first like the poor dog Boris through whose eyes we get to view most of the story I felt extremely worried and frightened at the apparently extraterrestrial Roog that approaches the house and is attracted by the window I was likewise unsettled by the unsuspecting attitude of Mr and Mrs Cardossi who not only seem to have no idea of the strange and lurking threat that is waiting outside their house but who are also actually annoyed at Boris s barking and his readiness to defend those whom he loves In the course of the story however it dawned upon me that what Boris takes for sinister aliens are just mundane garbagemen engaged in their everyday job and that made me laugh out loud partly with a feeling of great and intense relief But then there were some inconsistencies of perspective in the story as well as some details that would not really make sense to me in the context of this new interpretational frame of reference and the story left me with slight misgivings that Boris might have been right after all A little later on reflection the story actually made me feel a bit sad for Boris There he is frightened out of his wits and at the same time ready to stand by his owners and to defend them from alien forces notwithstanding any danger this might mean for him but his master and mistress are actually angry with him for making a racket and toy with the thought of giving him away to a relative for fear of the neighbours complaints and there is no way for him to communicate his fears and suspicions to them That put one of the saddest uotes by Conrad into my mind We live as we dream alone hide spoiler

Roog is a science fiction short story a really really short story by Philip K Dick I was wondering why science fiction stories and novels are called science fiction so I looked it up Science Fiction is a genre of speculative fiction typically dealing with imaginative concepts such as advanced science and technology spaceflight time travel and extraterrestrial life Science fiction often explores the potential conseuences of scientific and other innovations and has been called a literature of ideasI guess it s shorter to write science fiction than technology fiction or literature of ideas fiction but I didn t learn any of this stuff in science class I learned about dirt and clouds and what is inside of earth worms and things like that I guess it is kind of like science fiction I don t think I paid much attention in science class because I can remember the time we were learning about what the earth is made of I guess and the teacher caught my attention by asking me what is beneath top soil My logical answer of bottom soil wasn t right but I forget what the correct answer was which goes to show how much I needed to know that Anyway we don t have to learn about dirt in our story we get to read about a dog the dog is our main character and I love dogs Our dog is named Boris and I feel sorry for the poor dog from the very beginning of the story No one is happy with Boris no one is nice to him not his owners who are always upset with him for sitting in the yard yelling barking howling whatever he is doing Roog over and over again His owner want him to stop making all that noise or the neighbors will complain to the police again so obviously the neighbors aren t thrilled with him either And the garbage men wish he was far far away too This barking problem could be solved if his owners would let him in the house instead of letting him out in the yard all the time In the chilly morning he is in the yard if he wasn t he probably wouldn t even know when the Roogs were there he is out in the yard in the heat of the day he has to lay under the porch then My dog isn t out in the yard right now she is curled up on the sofa tonight she won t be out in the yard she will be sleeping in our bed under the covers between my husband and me She won t know who comes to our house Mailman garbage man electric meter reader she won t hear any of them the Roogs will be safeBut at the house where Boris lives the Roogs may not be safe perhaps no one is safe Each time they arrive they are in a truck bouncing and crashing against the rough stones The Roogs leap out of their truck come down the path take the metal cans dump them in their truck and off they go The Roogs are garbage men right Then why do they Well I ve never actually watched what my garbage men are doing when they come for the garbage but I am absolutely positive they aren t Roogs Why won t anyone listen to Boris Poor Boris Happy reading
