From the descriptions at the start of the book it sounded like it would be very interesting. Unfortunately, it seems as if most of the stories are simply exercises by Le Guin in character development. Interesting, and her writing is interesting, but not enough to make a book out of it.
I stuck it through to the end to see if there was anything that was worthwhile. I don't think I needed to read the entire thing.
The second volume of science fiction stories is much more interesting and I believe are definitely worth reading. I would not recommend this first volume to anyone. Unfortunate, because I really enjoy Le Guin. I have read many of her books and look forward to reading more.

Did not enjoy Tandy Cronyn
What was most disappointing about Ursula K. Le Guin’s story?
It was dull. Like a day to day journal of a dull life
How did the narrator detract from the book?
monotonous and unfamiliar American accent
Did The Unreal and the Real inspire you to do anything?
*** stop using audible (!) not really
Any additional comments?
I will look for her other works but be wary of the narrator
