The shapeless mass of darkness split apart. It sundered, and a pale spindle of light gleamed between his open arms. In the oval of light there moved a human shape: a tall woman ... beautiful, and sorrowful, and full of fear. - from A Wizard of Earthsea, first in a tetralogy that includes The Tombs of Atuan and The Farthest Shore, introduces the listener to Ged, the greatest sorcerer in all Earthsea, known also as Sparrowhawk. When Sparrowhawk casts a spell that saves his village from destruction at the hands of the invading Kargs, Ogion, the Mage of Re Albi, encourages the boy to apprentice himself in the art of wizardry. So, at the age of 13, the boy receives his true name - Ged - and gives himself over to the gentle tutelage of the Master Ogion. But impatient with the slowness of his studies and infatuated with glory, Ged embarks for the Island of Roke, where the highest arts of wizardry are taught. There, Ged's natural talents enable him to surpass his classmates in little time. But when his vanity prompts him to summon Elfarran, the fair lady of the Deed of Enlad, he unleashes a shapeless mass of darkness - the shadow. Download and start listening now!

    " Membaca buku ini, ekspektasi saya adalah seasyik membaca Harry Potter atau Eragon, seru dan menegangkan. Saya punya ekspektasi demikian karena di bahian belakang bukunya tertulis bahwa buku ini yang mengilhami munculnya dua buku seri yang saya baca tersebut. Ternyata? Ekspektasi say meleset jauuuhhh banget. Ngantuukk dan parahnya, ngga selesei buku yang tebalnya tiga kali lebih tipis dibanding Eragon. Hhhhh.... Maapkan.... "

    " This is one of those books that was a little slow and anti-climactic, however, when your done you realize it was a really good book. "
