The Lathe Of Heaven
The Lathe Of Heaven | Ursula K. LeGuin
George Orr is a mild and unremarkable man who finds the world a less than pleasant place to live: seven billion people jostle for living space and food. But George dreams dreams which do in fact change reality - and he has no means of controlling this extraordinary power. Psychiatrist Dr William Haber offers to help. At first sceptical of George's powers, he comes to astonished belief. When he allows ambition to get the better of ethics, George finds himself caught up in a situation of alarming peril.

My book club‘s February read, this was thought-provoking and made for a fantastic discussion. The premise is immediately engaging: a man‘s dreams have the power to reshape reality. But the way that premise plays out turns the whole “what if your dreams could come true” idea on its head. What if someone else manipulated your dreams and subsequently reality itself for their own (semi-altruistic but ultimately misguided) ends? ⬇️

BarbaraJean (Cont‘d) LeGuin uses this premise to explore so many utopian/dystopian ideas that are absolutely fascinating to me, and the personalities she uses to do so give this idea-driven story a very human core. SO good. Now to read the other two books collected in this omnibus edition with its weird cover. 😆 4mo

#BookReport
Had a phenomenal reading week finishing two physical and two audiobooks. Highlight of the week was the tagged. It was just seven hours but packed a punch.

#WeeklyForecast
Goal this week is to finish Burning Stars and make good progress in Counterfeit. I'm trying to carve out more reading time but lately the family has been binging Below Decks in our free time.

Beautifully written look at the nature of reality and good intentions versus repercussions. I wasn't sure of the narrator listening to the audiobook but I was won over by the depth of emotion that he was able to convey.

This is a reread since it was selected by my book club. As before, a decade ago, I really enjoyed it. I love the concepts that it plays with. Also, after 10 more years, it brought up a whole set of novel thoughts (for me). Glad I reread it 🙂

This classic SF novel involves a man whose dreams cause the world to be altered. The jumps to different realities makes the reading challenging, but LeGuin poses many thought-provoking questions.

What would you do if your dreams came true? This is the dilemma of our protagonist. His initial solution was to try never to dream. He then falls prey to his psychiatrist who uses this ability for his own purposes. A real classic! As a long-standing SF reader, I‘m surprised I‘d never read this book, or this author. I will be adding more to my TBR mountain. Thanks to #authoramonth and @Soubhiville for pushing me once again to try a new to me author

Okay, so I‘m not actually digging into my #AuthorAMonth selection until a bit later in June, but since I stirred up so much controversy I thought I‘d pull my copy of this off the shelf now before I caused any more trouble 😅🤣 You ladies can let me know if you agree with my assessment or if I‘m just a wuss. 🤗💙 @BarkingMadRead @dabbe @Soubhiville

IndoorDame @dabbe I‘d survey some of the readers in the group who know her better, I‘m just starting out with this author too. 14mo
bnp LeGuin is a favorite author for me, but I'm not sure what to recommend as a starting point., Be cause it depends on what a reader likes. Fantasy: The Earthsea trilogy published in the 1970s? And then a look at how she rounds out the character of Tenar, and the role of women and dragons 20 years later? 14mo
bnp Science fiction: I'm partial to The lathe of heaven, though it freaked me out a bit as a teenager. The left hand of darkness for exploration of "ambisexuality"? (Though it feels dated now, that was also a challenge for teenage me.) The dispossessed "anarchist utopia" 14mo
bnp And then there's are collections of essays, and things like Searoads and Always coming home. 14mo

I‘m, again, surprised and delighted by U.K. Le Guin. This hypnotic tale, in which dreams alter reality, explores a power struggle about whether and how that ability should be used. The characters are embodiments of ideologies and the plot is a thought experiment, but this short novel ramped up the stakes so quickly and turned its twists so sharply that it was also very compulsively readable sci-fi! I especially recommend it to Philip K. Dick fans.

I was motivated to post my 5 fave sci-fi books due to an earlier post from @theneverendingtbr Fifth Season might be pushing the definition a bit, but what struck me as unique was the mixture of sci-fi & fantasy elements. Honorable mention goes to: Necromancer, Recursion & Cat's Cradle. What are your fave sci-fi books?

Nute Awesome choices. Happy to see The Island of Dr. Moreau on the list. I really like that book as well. And Recursion getting an accolade as honorable-mentioned. I need to read that book! 3y

This week I had the chance of reading 2 very good books:
- Slow Bullets by Alastair Reynolds - an impulse buy at the library sale that turned out to be a great read.
- the tagged book which was awesome, by one of my favorite authors. Written a few decades ago, it felt like it was written yesterday, with all the social and human condition aspects touched (war, racism, power). Loved it! This was also my #BookSpin, so happy to finish it.
Both picks!

This book is AMAZING! One of the best books I‘ve read in a really long time! It‘s a relatively short read, with only 11 chapters and a little 150 pages, but amazing non-the-less. It speaks volumes on society‘s problems and issues of “today” (granted this was written decades ago but still very relevant) and the concept (changing reality through dreams) leaves the possibilities endless for more content. Short read but an absolute must! Read over 3x

After watching The Jane Austen Book Club yesterday, I was inspired to immediately hit the library to pick up something by Ursula K LeGuin (and a couple of Austen novels I‘ve yet to read). I was thinking maybe The Left Hand of Darkness, but this is the only one they had on the shelf, so I went with it. At about 50%, I‘m definitely enjoying the ethical questions it poses. Still feels relevant.

Mind bending! The way Le Guin shifts the “reality” of the narrative as Orr dreams. It‘s disorienting and thrilling. Kind of fun as you catch yourself thinking, “Wait. That‘s not what his office was like two pages ago.” Living in Portland and looking at Mt. Hood also makes it doubly fun to read.

Today I finished my favorite local independent bookstore‘s monthly #bookclub book. This is one of few sci-fi books I‘ve ever read and it was intriguing. I like being exposed to new books and this one got me thinking. It didn‘t quite end how I expected, but I liked exploring the ideas of dreams, reality, humanity, world issues and power. 3/5 ⭐️ // #scifi #sciencefiction #fiction #review #35before35list

I remember seeing the PBS adaptation of this in high school and loving it. It‘s about a man named George who has “effective” dreams - in other words, his dreams actually change reality. George‘s interactions with a manipulative psychiatrist eventually leads to chaos and the book shows the dangers of having a God complex, even if one‘s intentions seem “good” on the surface. A great read!

I honestly don‘t think I‘m equipped to review but will try.

A man whose dreams alter reality and and a doctor who wants to harness and control those dreams, was fantastic. In a world that has a multitude of problems, the doctors good intentions to control the dreams to make the world a better place, however it comes with dangerous side effects.

God complexes are extremely dangerous even when benevolent.

You have to help another person. But it‘s not right to play God with masses of people. To be God you have to know what you‘re doing. And to do any good at all, just believing you‘re right and your motives are good isn‘t enough. You have to … be in touch.

Leniverse @GabrielleDubois What the character means is that whenever we achieve an "end" there are ever more such ends to achieve, so we never stop using dubious means, all for the "greater good". I agree but think he draws the wrong conclusion when he says we should let everything be, not try to effect change. (LeGuin uses a lot of Taoism). Personally I hold with Kant that we cannot use others as means to our ends, they are ends in themselves. 6y

Le Guin is one of those authors I desperately want to love but haven't ever been able to quite click with -- I liked the few things I've read by her but just never could feel that brilliance I knew I was just missing by a handsbreadth. I don't know if it's always been a case of the wrong time or if it was just me (I know it's not her -- I'm painfully aware that her stories are fantastic just without being fully there myself). (Contd in comments)

parasolofdoom I have high hopes this will be the time and book she finally falls in place for me! Really enjoying it but in a distracted mood so fingers crossed. I want to eventually revisit what I've already read in a wiser frame of mind. 6y
