Publisher's Summary

A classic science fiction novel by one of the greatest writers of the genre, set in a future world where one man's dreams control the fate of humanity.
In a future world racked by violence and environmental catastrophes, George Orr wakes up one day to discover that his dreams have the ability to alter reality. He seeks help from Dr. William Haber, a psychiatrist who immediately grasps the power George wields. Soon George must preserve reality itself as Dr. Haber becomes adept at manipulating George's dreams for his own purposes.
The Lathe of Heaven is an eerily prescient novel from award-winning author Ursula K. Le Guin that masterfully addresses the dangers of power and humanity's self-destructiveness, questioning the nature of reality itself. It is a classic of the science fiction genre.

extraordinarily original and thoughtful

This book is extraordinarily original and thoughtful as a story, as a piece of raw imagery, and as a piece of social philosophy.

Solid Le Guin Novel

Any additional comments?

Like all of Le Guin's works, this is very offbeat. The central character in the novel drove me a bit crazy, but that's intentional. He is presented as a deeply flawed figure who doesn't quite know how to handle the strange gifts he has been given. The ending is, in some ways, unsatisfying, but, again, I think that is intentional.
