    The first few chapters of this were a real chore They were confusing and dull However, out of the darkness of those chapters, and out of the depths of the labyrinth, came a story of redemption, human suffering and a will, a will to overcome great evil when succumbing to the darkness would have been a much easier path to walkYou must make a choice Either you must leave me, lock the door, go up to your alters and give me to your masters then go to the Princess Kossil and make your peace wit The first few chapters of this were a real chore They were confusing and dull However, out of the darkness of those chapters, and out of the depths of the labyrinth, came a story of redemption, human suffering and a will, a will to overcome great evil when succumbing to the darkness would have been a much easier path to walkYou must make a choice Either you must leave me, lock the door, go up to your alters and give me to your masters then go to the Princess Kossil and make your peace with her and that is the end of the story or, you must unlock the door, and go out of it, with me Leave the tombs, leave Atuan, and come with me oversea And that is the beginning of the story It was a shame about the beginning, but the rest of the novelthan made up for it That quote gave me t...

    When I first tried reading this in my teens I could not manage to go beyond 50 pages because I wanted Ged AKA Sparrowhawk , the hero of the previous volume A Wizard of Earthsea, to show up and follow him on new adventures What I found instead was a story of an entirely new protagonist, a young girl called Tenar who lives an oppressive life on the island of Atuan Young fool that I was, I did not read on to the middle of the book where Ged does show up foradventures though this time as th When I first tried reading this in my teens I could not manage to go beyond...

    This is a very fine fantasy I say fine because it evokes many great labyrinthian images, old, old traditions of sacrifice to the Dark Old Ones, and eventually, freedom from the same.There s a lot of beauty here, and while I didn t love it on quite the same scale as Ged s original journey in the first book, it s mainly because I liked the core theme better.Other readers will absolutely take out of this book different layers I can say that confidently because there are some really beautiful and This is a very fine fantasy I say fine because it evokes many great labyrinthian images, old, old traditions of sacrifice to the Dark Old Ones, and eventually, freedom from the same.There s a lot of beauty here, and while I didn t love it on quite the same scale as Ged s original journey in the first book, it s mainly because I liked the core theme better.Other readers will absolutely take out of this book different layers I can say that confidently because there are some really beautiful and clear layers interwoven here.The past and the evil in the past can be broken and escaped That ...

    This always used to be my favourite of the series, both for sheer atmosphere and because it featured a female centred world, in complete contrast to the first book It s almost the opposite, in that way Ged isn t the POV character any, and instead we follow Arha Tenar, seeing her experience in a different land, seeing Ged as an outsider That latter is especially fun, because though he talks about not learning Ogion s lessons, it seems that he really has And there was always an attraction This always used to be my favourite of the series, both for sheer atm...
