A review by joillian
The Lathe of Heaven, by Ursula K. Le Guin

challenging reflective medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes


this book manages to grapple with so many topics so expertly. 
i dinged breakfast of champions because it had some ugly overpopulation rhetoric. this book on the other hand shows how that kind of rhetoric can become a slippery slope into eugenics. while that's nowhere near the only topic of the book, that really stood out to me. i love you LeGuin
