I'm not a great fan of this book, where Psychiatry is done by Telepathy and by team.. There are a few interesting bits where oour hero is slipping into the mess before him. ( )

It's probably sacrilege to say it, but the point of this SF classic was lost on me (and generally I *like* Zelazny). I found it confusing, structurally a bit of a mess, and a chore to get through. There's a sound central premise, but the explication and conclusion are mishandled, or perhaps I really didn't get it. Expanded into a novel from a shorter story, I'm willing to bet that the shorter form was better. ( )

O autor cria um cenário muito interessante de exploração das psicoses de cada um via o controle e manipulação dos sonhos do indivíduo de modo a provar a sua dose de loucura. Porém o herói Charles Render depara-se com uma personagem cega que quer dominar essa psico-ciência de exploração da mente, mas o que os olhos não vêm o coração não sente.
Gostei do livro mas confesso que o final me deixou enredado e confuso no meio da psicose em que o herói se vê envolvido. Podia ter terminado duma forma mais interessante ( )

Zelazny's usual fabulous world-building and interesting characters but not much of a story. ( )

His name is Charles Render, and he is a psychoanalyst, and a mechanic of dreams. A Shaper. In a warm womb of metal, his patients dream their neuroses, while Render, intricately connected to their brains, dreams with them, makes delicate adjustments, and ultimately explains and heals. Her name is Eileen Shallot, a resident in psychiatry. She wants desperately to become a Shaper, though she has been blind from birth. Together, they will explore the depths of the human mind -- and the terrors that lurk therein
