    " I thought this one was a bit better. I have a hard time thinking I am better for having read it, but I did think it was well written and I did lose myself a bit in it. I guess I wasn't convinced it was a story that needed to be told. Well, I am glad I read it. "

    " Excellent ending to the trilogy. This where Le Guin shows her chops for putting together a great story with some philosophical insights into the human condition. Spoiler alert . . . I found the ending rather quickly and unsatisfactorily resolved. The tension set up by the pursuit of Gav's long time enemy just sort of falls off the story as well as the horse. That was the only real disappointment in the book. "

    " I loved this book! Gav is about 11 when the story starts. He is a house slave in a city state in another time and place. He starts out thinking he has a pretty good life but gradually he begins to understand the injustice of the whole system. He is educated to be a teacher. When his sister is murdered he runs away and begins a journey to discover his powers and his place in the world. One one level the book is about justice and freedom, on another level it is about friendship, family ties, and cultural roles. On still another level it is about what makes for a good life. "

    " Good. Except the climax is at the beginning. It gets uninteresting towards the end. I had to force myself to finish it. "
