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. Download and start listening now!

    " I love sci fi, but only got half way through this one. It has been a while since I didn't go ahead and finish a book. The astrial planes got more and more out there in a boring way. "

    " The opening section tells how the special type of discomfort caused by waiting in an airport gives you the ability of "interplanary travel." The stories are parable-style sketches of different planes. I don't much care for parables, and some of these seemed pretty simplistic to me. If more of it had been funny, like the opening description of airports and a few short passages later on, I would probably have liked the book better. "

    " Awesome. Short stories of different worlds that are fascinating and thought-provoking. Ursula hits one out of the park again. "

    " Not my favorite Ursula Leguin book but still a worthy title that explores many alternate realities. Told in a number of vignettes the protagonist visits other planes of existence and describes as an anthropologist would the societies she finds. Has many intersections with choices we as a society are now facing. "
