I'm reading the Earthsea books at the moment. I'm only about 130 pages into the first, but holy **** am I now a fan of le Guin. I previously had only read The Dispossessed but I genuinely think that as a Sci-Fi novel it's up there with the very best, intellectual Sci-Fi.
Earthsea just seems so rich. And all the characters have a depth and complexity to them, despite not doing very much. I'm really enjoying it. So much so that I'm tired today from lack of sleep. And kept reading last night despite sore eyes. Also, if the Earthsea books were originally intended for children/teens, then it's definitely the case that modern children are thick as ****.
