Once again Rob Inglis nails it with his narration! The book itself was awesome, especially the ending, but Rob brought it to life.
Wonderful book but IMHO some strange accent choices by the narrator. If Arren is the prince of Enlad and heir of Morred why would he speak like Wurzel bleeding Gummidge?
A solid effort. I enjoyed it.
Le Guin’s writings sometimes plumbs to the depths. The dialogue surrounding the almost Faustian bargain some of the acquaintances make in this book, is both horrifying and captivating.
Yet her characters often seem like wraiths: they are not real; their edges are not defined; they are forgettable as soon as they have passed; and she really only ever puts two of them in a house.
