    Originally published in 1966, the audio version was produced in 2007 Le Guin is a pioneer among women sci fi writers Here she does a great job of creating an exciting new world with new beings The two audiobook readers do a wonderful job of bringing the story further to life.

    This turned out to be a fairly average read The world building and the general ideas behind the plot are excellent Sadly Le Guin fails when it comes to storytelling Her writing feels distant and as a result I felt a bit disconnected from the characters and the happenings Which was a shame as I felt like this had the potential to be something special The story takes place on the planet of Werel, a fascinating place where one year is equivalent to 60 Earth years The seasons on Werel match th This turned out to be a fairly average read The world building and the general ideas behind the plot are excellent Sadly Le Guin fails when it comes to storytelling Her writing feels distant and as a result I felt a bit disconnected from the characters and the happenings Which was a shame as I felt like this had the potential to be something special The story takes place on the planet of Werel, a fascinating place where one year is equivalent to 60 Earth years The seasons on Werel match those on Earth meaning that they last 15 years each on Werel The Earth colony of Landon has been stranded there for 10 years 10 local years that is which is 600 Earth years The colony is dying slowly and the population is down to its last few thousand The colony folk have a peaceful, but strained relationship with the local humanoid aliens, but both cultures must learn to work together or fall under the migrating horde of Gaals For the first time ever the Gaals tribes have united under one leader and rather than just peacefully migrating south for the winter, as they normally do, they plan to invade and capture a few winter cities along the way The story touched on a number of themes including racism, prejudice, isolation, and the struggle for survival Unsurprisingly this was quite dark at times Rating 3 stars.Audio Note The narration was split between Carrington MacDuffie and Steven Hoye A ploy that did not work particularly well as they made no effort at consistency of interpretation The producers should probably just have went with MacDuffie as she wasadept at voicing the characters

    In my review of Left Hand of Darkness, the first of LeGuin s works that I read, I wondered whether she had the authorial depth to create another unusual vision, or whether her books were all of a similar tone I admit I did not expect them to be quite this similar.The first four Hainish stories, despite taking place on different worlds with different characters, all share tone, plot, theme, and character types We have a male protagonist who has an important position in his society, but who is l In my review of Left Hand of Darkness, the first of LeGuin s works that I read, I wondered whether she had the authorial depth to create another unusual vision, or whether her books were all of a similar tone I admit I did not expect them to be quite this similar.The first four Hainish stories, despite taking place on different worlds with different characters, all share tone, plot, theme, and character types We have a male protagonist who has an important position in his society, but who is living through a period of upheaval and unsurety which renders his high position less useful.He wanders through a strange world, lonely and confused, unable to connect with anyone around him Despite this lack of connection, he still develops an obsessive romance with a woman despite remaining alienated from her He continues to follow a path towards a single, constant goal for which he must sacrifice his love, his friends, and his sense of self.Throughout the story, there will be hints and inferences about homosexuality, but despite foreshadowing, any such relationship will melt away shortly before the climax, never to be mentioned again There will be a tone of fundamental isolation as the protagonist frets and ruminates about his relationships, which will always remain laconic and strained He will form a relationship with a mentor character who will either die or disappear before he is ready.It works better in some stories than in others In the true isolation of a man alone on an alien world in Left Hand of Darkness, it is understandable, if still somewhat overwrought In The City of Illusions , the story of a man who has lost himself in a world where he can rely on no one, it seems the logical conclusion for a protagonist who is fundamentally paranoid and truly alone.However, in this book, it is less effective We also do not have the interesting conceptual story of Rocannon s World , ingeniously blending fantasy with sci fi, so of the series, this book is the most flat All the books are rather detached and stoic, so without a unique concept to explore, there is not a lot left.Likewise, the story does not develop a coherent reason for the protagonist to remain so detached and unsure, even within his own society If LeGuin is depicting a character with some sort of social disorder, she never depicts any of the other characters as finding his mode off putting, which I certainly did And beyond that, all the protagonists in the series have the same social problems.Guilelessness is rarely good for an author, since they end up injecting themselves, their assumptions, desires, philosophies, and worldviews into their character without accounting for how it affects the story For an author with a dull, stilted personality, this is a death sentence no matter their intention, they will write a hidebound, dull book, returning always to their own natural level.For an author with a skewed, unusual way of looking at things, it is somewhat less problematic, since their book and characters will tend to be interesting and unpredictable, but the problem is to keep things fresh while writing what are fundamentally the same characters, themes, and story over and over.Ironically, this can sometimes beof a problem for an idiomatic author, since their habitual stories and types will stand out , not being able to fade into the background as easily ascommon and recognizable character types and stories It is easier to write repetitive stories when those stories already have an accepted place in the culture.Most authors have a type, a mode which they write in, as evidenced by the Byronic hero or Lovecraftian horror , but it is important for an author to challenge themselves, pushing the limits of what they can do, ensuring that each story is, in some way, fundamentally different, and to avoid writing a story which is a watered down version of something they have already written.LeGuin is usually good at creating differentiation in her stories even if she keeps returning to the same character types and themes, at least the settings and subgenre material are different As an adventure, this book is not bad, and we get some of LeGuin s odd world building In addition, this story provides the background for the conclusion of the next book in the series, City of Illusions, which may be why it is a less in depth story, itself Though happily, the next book has some of LeGuin s best writing, so this one is hardly a sign that her talents are on the wane
