    " I decided to re-read this classic because my Dad told me there was a cartoon based on the story. He said he didn't know how accurate it was compared to the book, and I told him it had been too long since I'd read the book for me to tell him if it was accurate or not. So I decided to read them again so I could let him know. "

    " Not as compelling as The Tombs of Ataun, but good enough to confirm that I am really late to the Ursula K. LeGuin party. LeGuin writes beautifully, and she's a great worldbuilder. I didn't find The Farthest Shore to be as well-paced as the second book in the trilogy, but I'm still very excited to read more of her work. "

    " I loved the ending to this. Le Guin's dragons are alive! "

    " the farthest shore is a good fantasy novel, but i say that with some disappointment, because a wizard of earthsea and its sequel, the tombs of atuan, aren't fantasy novels. they're something closer to fairy tales. we never needed to know what goes on when the masters of roke meet in the secret clearing, or to know what the dragons' run is. this is the strength of the books: they're not about those places, but about the internal journeys of the characters. the antagonists of the earlier books are the protagonists' arrogance, nihilism, doubt and stubbornness. the farthest shore has a bona fide villain who is threatening the balance of the world. it's not a bad story - it's by usula k. leguin - but it is a lot of things i like wizard of earthsea and tombs of atuan for not being.
