I have heard many good things of Ursula Le Guin and I will definitely have to read more of her books. The prose was good and the premise very interesting: George Orr's dreams can change the world. He's afraid of dreaming at first, trying to stop himself and then starts therapy, hoping a doctor can help him to stop dreaming. Instead the therapist realises the potential of George's dreams and starts trying to turn the place into a better place. What could possibly go wrong?
