It's hard to know what to say about this book that wasn't already said quite well in the editorial reviews in the next tab over, but I was sucked into this book immediately by its bizarre, nightmarish premise. George Orr is what any of us would become given the weight on his shoulders of responsibility, guilt, and fear of what his mind might dream up. On the other hand, while the reader might be tempted to condemn his psychiatrist for the egotism that leads him to use George as a tool, is it so hard to imagine that a person in his position would push the boundaries of the new power he wields? "The Lathe of Heaven," will make you think about responsibility, about the meaning of dreams, and about power relationships, particularly that between doctor and patient.
