George Orr's dreams do change the world. He is the only one who knows it...he and the power-mad psychiatrist who is forcing George to dream a new reality, a better reality, free from war, disease, overpopulation and all human misery.
But for every man-made dream of utopia, there is a terrifying unforeseeable consequence, and George must dream and dream again, forever seeking a perfect future. Until the very essence of cosmic reality begins to disintegrate.
A little bit more of an experimental, adult offering by a great science-fiction athor sometimes known for her young adult fiction.
Very interesing. A good short read.
I was disapointed with this book. I found the writing dry and boring in bits. I had seen the remake movie of Lathe of Heaven and enjoyed it very much but was bored when I read the book. I believe that it's just the particular writing style of the author that doesn't attract me. I read another book by her that I barely made it through.
It is a good story but the writing just drags it down.
A very good example of LeGuinn's writing. Won both Hugo & Nebula awards.
