I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

A Wizard of Earthsea

Cover of A Wizard of Earthsea.

It’s real fantasy, it’s great, and in some ways it reminds me of The Name of the Wind. Loved it a lot - Ged really grows on you, and the story is quite dense, and there as much story in this book as many others would fit in a trilogy (growing up, mastering school, mastering the antagonist, for example?). I clearly need to read more books by Ursula K. Le Guin!


And the truth is that as a man’s real power grows and his knowledge widens, ever the way he can follow grows narrower: until at last he chooses nothing, but does only and wholly what he must do.
