Summary

In this collection of short stories, Sita Dulip from Cincinnati finds a method of transcending the miserable experience of flying. A mere kind of twist and a slipping bend - easier to do than to describe - takes her not to Denver, but to bizarre societies and cultures that sometimes mirror our own and sometimes open doors into the alien. Changing Planes is by turns funny, disturbing, and thought provoking.

Social Fiction

Le Guin is normally housed in bookstores under science fiction. Not normally a fan of the genre, this is the first book of hers I've "read." It's not "Star Wars" science fiction. Instead it's a look at what societies in parallel universes might be like if they weighed social and ethical responsibilities differently than we humans do here on earth. It's a GREAT, thought-provoking listen. I hope Audible will carry more of her stuff. Narrator does a great job, too.

Le Guin and De Cuir: Great combination

This themed collection of short stories by Ursula K. Le Guin isn't her best work, but it's head and shoulders better than most of the stuff out there. Some of the stories are exquisitely moving, thought provoking, and/or screamingly funny. There's a light touch to even the most serious ones that narrator De Cuir does a great job of bringing out.
