A Wizard of Earthsea
A Wizard of Earthsea - Ursula K. Le Guin

Another from NPR's Backseat Bookshelf.

 

The rating is solely because I don't like high fantasy (I do like low fantasy). I'm pretty sure this A Wizard of Earthsea is good since most people who do like high fantasy like Le Guin and the Earthsea series. If I wanted long descriptions of fantasy worlds and life at wizard school and battles with a mysterious shadow being, I would have loved it.

Sex and Buzz Bombs: "Wizard" by John Varley
Wizard - John Varley


(Original Review, 1980-12-16)


It introduces more complications into the plot of the TITAN series, and clears up some nagging items as well; ever wonder what a satellite-brain looks like? What happens when tourism/ hits Gaea? What composers does a Titanide like?

I just finished reading “Wizard” by John Varley (at the cost of getting an incomplete in Philosophy because I was supposed to be writing a paper and of not studying for my Physics test tomorrow). “Wizard” was better than `Titan' and “The Ophuichi Hotline” (which are very good), but not as good as Varley's short stories (which are great).

Wow, 10 books in a month is good for me!

 

I'm reading more in the run up to Bingo. Some of these could even fit Bingo squares, but I have new choices.

 

Stand out books Are Legion and Hero at the Fall, both good Fantasy. Behind the Door and Blackbeard were also worthy.

 

3 non-fiction, of those Ireland the Best was excellent reference material and the others were each interesting in their own ways.

 

Funny enough, the two well known Fantasy writers were the disappointments.

 

I was getting close to finishing all current reads, then a couple more got approved at Netgalley. At least I'm going to have plenty of good stuff to read for the next couple of months!
