Which ones have you read?
I've read Valis and the first half of A Scanner Darkly.

That overly detailed form of writing isn't very inviting. Even though the stories are interesting, the style of writing just isn't very involving, at least not for someone so finicky with books like me. Reading books should be enjoyable, it shouldn't be like doing homework. Unfortunately, easy-to-read books tend not to tell the kind of dark tales I like. And then I discovered Robert Cormier, and that all changed.

There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
