  •  The Earthsea Trilogy (I think it's 5 now) was one (9+ / 0-)

    of the most enchanting reading experiences of my early teen years. I got so sucked into that world. And I've since found all the other ones you mention of hers.

    I like what you say of her, all true. Her mix of SF, poetry, humanity strangely unbalanced and shown with sharp and subtle insight, and a well-told tale, really adds up to a memorable book. Doris Lessing does something in the same ballpark, but LeGuin has a knack for hitting it over the fence.

    Your honorable mentions . . . well, I have a lot of catching up to do. Thanks for a fine and in-depth comment, Wisper.
