Great Reading Challenge 2020-1: Book #3 The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K LeGuin (audiobook

11/2/20 This was written in 1971, I first read it as a teenager – upon reading it again now I am absolutely amazed how prophetic it is. Though the story is about one man’s gift/curse being used by another man as a means to reorder the world according to his own image, Ursula LeGuin foretold global warming, plague/pandemic, the breakdown of government and the subjugation of the common citizen. A frightening cause/effect of the misuse of power in the face of “good” intentions.
