Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philip | 2/18/2014

    " Definitely not as good as the first book in the series. A lot less action, a lot of focus on Ahra and developing her character but good nonetheless. Looking forward now to see where the story goes and how it all ends. Definitely going to read the next few books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 2/18/2014

    " Not as good as the first, but still entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 2/11/2014

    " So short! But it was good and sufficient. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colin | 2/2/2014

    " Required reading. Do it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moira Russell | 1/20/2014

    " This was one of the first fantasy novels I ever read, and it had a huge effect on me. It's still one of my favourite books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dion Yulianto | 1/5/2014

    " Aduh emang kudu sabar ekstra baca halaman-halaman awal, lebih banyak deskripsi dan narasi ketimbang aksi dan petualangan untuk sebuah novel fantasi. Untung termasuk sebagai novel klasik fantasy, menginggat novel ini ditulis pada tahun 1960-an. untuk koleksi aja deh "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/1/2014

    " The first time I was reading this one, I was very disappointed that it didn't seem to be a direct sequel to Wizard of Earthsea. But once you've read all the books, it fits into place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 12/11/2013

    " LeGuinn is truly a master at story telling. Excellent book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridgett | 12/10/2013

    " I really liked the character of Tenar and the difficulties she faced. The religious beliefs of their culture and the importance of language was very interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 12/7/2013

    " The Earthsea books are far more concise and in my opinion, mythically oriented, than most fantasy claiming to be. Deftly written, I have read the first trio of books at least four times each. There's a reason for that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Astrid Yrigollen | 12/5/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book and was glad that I ran across it. I actually read it years ago( 15?) and out of order but it was great as a stand alone. I have it marked to read the whole series since it did leave me wanting more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 11/3/2013

    " I love a good story about faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stezsen | 7/28/2013

    " Aih tetep paling bagus buku 1 nya yah.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chesley | 7/11/2013

    " An interesting part two to the Earthsea series. Probably could have used a little more depth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Britta | 7/3/2013

    " beautiful book. Better than The Wizard of Earthsea with a continuation of characters from that book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 5/13/2013

    " Starting to understand why Ursula K. Le Guin is such a respected author in this genre. Particularly enjoyed reading her afterword to this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keri ケリ | 9/2/2012

    " this book was okay but...it was boring...compared to the others "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 fin | 2/14/2012

    " The best Earthsea books are the original trilogy (Book 1-3). My favourite is this one (book 2). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon Cooper | 12/25/2011

    " starts to get a little uneasy here "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wayne | 8/21/2011

    " I went straight from the first book into this, and it just keeps getting better. The interaction between Gen and Arha/Tenar is lovely. This isn't a high-action book, but it's just stunning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allie | 5/20/2011

    " I've decided to reread the Earthsea series. I haven't read them since I was about twelve, but it turns out they've aged very well. Ursula K. Leguin, you are still my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikel | 5/12/2011

    " I really enjoyed the second book even though Ged isn't the main character. I've meant to read these for a long time since they are a staple in the children's literature genre. They teach some good lessons on life, death and the nature of darkness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 4/19/2011

    " The second book int he series, I liked this one even better than A WIZARD OF EARTHSEA (altho, it's likely it wouldn't have the same impact if I hadn't read the first one). The setting is great. Interesting story. Really quick, fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 4/3/2011

    " I liked the first book enough to read the second, although this time I did NOT read it to my 8 year old. I'm glad i didnt this was much darker than the first. And although it was a sequel the main character from the first book was only partially in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 3/28/2011

    " a gem of a book. Surprisingly good. Also no one seems to have this one anymore. Worth the read, I must see if it was part of a series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 3/24/2011

    " A pleasant read. The blurbs on the back cover reach a bit far, but Le Guin's writing is smooth and clever. "
