  • One of the best fantasy novels

    I have now read this book three times, and it has lost none of its power for me. The first of a series of novels, it describes the training of a young wizard in a world of islands, how in his pride he releases a dark evil, and his struggle to put that right - a struggle which takes him beyond the generally known world. In the process he grows in self-knowledge and strength. The book is superbly and beautifully written, in frequently very evocative prose. This is one of the best fantasy novels I have come across.

  • Classic

    A classic story. I read this as a boy but didn't appreciate it so much as now. I'll be taking the others soon, I hope.

  • Wizardly tale!

    Enjoyed the depth and the style very much. Love the idea that true names for things give power to the one who calls its name, would love to read more of Earthsea too!
