Reviews of A Wizard of Earthsea

1. Rating 5/5

The thing to recollect about Earthsea, similar to all of LeGuin’s composition, is that it is less fiction than it is Taoist parable. LeGuin is a savant keenly camouflaged as a science fiction/fantasy author. Her composing is beautiful and languid; her characterization and plotting range from astounding to fair. Yet, character and plot fill in as a vehicle for the topics of balance, straightforwardness, and tranquility that imbue all of her works.
Earthsea is, on its face, a fantasy saga along the lines of Tolkien or Rowling. Be that as it may, underneath the slim facade of the fantastical literary show is a convincing anecdote about action and result and the nature of oneself. Reading Earthsea as on the off chance that it was fiction is missing a large portion of the point, and will leave the reader confounded. The story is told in fragments and scenes, and a large portion of the important action takes place off the page. That appears to be frustrating and silly except if the reader understands that the “important action” isn’t the focal point of the narrative.
I believe there’s a certain amount of “Ruler’s New Clothes” wonder encompassing Earthsea, as proved by the ongoing TV miniseries. Individuals attempt to read it as if it was regular fantasy, and then say they like it because so many other individuals do, afraid to admit that they don’t get it. I don’t think Earthsea stands up very well against different greats of fantasy fiction if it’s read in this light. Yet, the beauty of LeGuin’s composition and the significance of Earthsea’s message make it a commendable addition to the class, and each reader’s library.

2. Rating 4/5

When I chose to read just books composed by female authors in 2017, there was just one name that I knew HAD to be on the rundown: Ursula K. Le Guin. I had never read any of her work, having as of late been acquainted with her via a YouTube video where she talked about the lack of minorities in works of fantasy. I had never halted to consider this issue, so her conversation perpetrated a little self-appearance in me as well as provoked my enthusiasm for her work.
The book pursues the little fellow, Ged, also known as Sparrowhawk. Ged has all the qualities you’d wish in a fantasy lead: he is amazing and brave and great. But on the other hand, he’s young, at times immature, brash, arrogant, and foolhardy.
This heedlessness inadvertently causes Ged to unleash malicious upon the world, and in obvious fantasy fashion, he has to be the one to vanquish the abhorrence and make things right again.
There’s not a huge amount of action in the book. The wizarding school isn’t as elaborately imagined as that in Harry Potter (however it predates that arrangement by decades) yet is fascinating regardless. What the book has is solid character development, and a philosophical edge does not usually show in fantasy. It will make you think as well as feel.
I couldn’t fault the composition, however as the book approached its 50th anniversary, it feels somewhat dated. I will get the subsequent novel to perceive how it unfurls.
4 out of 5 stars
