I remember the first time I read this thinking how much this reminded me of Philip K Dick, only to discover that it was Ursula Le Guin's tribute to the great man. George Orr is a classic PKD style character in being an ordinary person who finds himself in extraordinary circumstances. Circumstances somehow created by him, where reality is ever shifting. This will most definitely appeal to fans of Philip K Dick.

I loved it. Great writing, inventive, multi themed: social, political (as you would expect) the very nature of reality. Even if you can dream it, is it possible to make a perfect world? Should you even try or must you settle in the end, for a workable compromise? I can't describe the plot. You'll just have to read it.
Good kindle copy.

A real thought provoking scenario - the idea that reality can be changed by one person's dreams makes for a very exciting story. It reminds me of the imagination of Philip K Dick, but Ursula Le Guin is a giant in SF Literature in her own right. This book does not disappoint. Read and enjoy.

this replaced my old copy of this book I've had and reread over and over since the 1970s; it was falling apart. Delighted to reread it in this version. George Orr is a specially ordinary but also extraordinary person whose dreams sometimes change reality. Dr Haber is his therapist, who gradually comes to accept these changes are really happening, and then wants to use them. George tries to oppose him, with some help from the lawyer Heather Lelache, but reality keeps on changing, and changing....it is the aliens who arrive that are the eventual source of hope.

I thoroughly enjoyed this warm intelligent piece of sci fi. A plot that could have become over complicated and tricky was never allowed to overcome the central humanity of the central characters.

Long time SF fan, how have I missed this book? Not at all like the Earthsea novels which I read donkeys years ago. This story still highly prescient and very topical, was sorry to finish it

Dystopian, moody, just what I was looking for! This was my first time reading ULG's addult fiction, will be looking for more. This edition is really nice as well.

A thought-provoking, gripping, poetic and often funny novel about responsibility. One of the best things I've read for a long time.

I enjoyed reading this even more than the first time . I read it when it was first published long ago.

This was a book with a brilliant idea at its heart but with no middle or end to it. I fee a bit cheated to be honest.
