Customer Review

on 9 November 2001
I only pose this silly rhetorical question with regard to More's classic work `Utopia'. In some many senses, " The Lathe of Heaven " is a development of the issues of utopia-constructing that More raised in his satire. Each of us has a vision, an idea of what would constitute the perfect society. In this novel, a psychiatrist, Dr Haber, has the ability to construct his utopia. He does this through one of his patients, George Orr, who has a remarkable gift: his dreams alter reality! The novel does not have a highly sophisticated plot; it is not a pulsating thriller.It is, however, thoroughly thought-provoking.. indeed, I read the book 4 months ago and have been thinking about it ever since. What is one person's utopia is another's hell; by rectifying one defect of a society, one could create new and sinister ones. The novel is a excellent philosophical exercise that is readable, intelligent and entertaining.
