Interest in the Earthsea Cycle?
October 7, 2020 10:24 AM - Subscribe

Would anyone be interested in a reread of Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea cycle?

There are six books, all relatively short (150-300 pages):
  • A Wizard of Earthsea
  • The Tombs of Atuan
  • The Farthest Shore
  • Tehanu
  • Tales from Earthsea
  • The Other Wind
We can also discuss Earthsea stories like "The Rule of Names" or "Firelight", as well as Le Guin's writings about Earthsea (e.g., "Earthsea Revisioned").

If folks are interested, I can create a club in FanFare and we can work out a schedule.

I've somehow never read these, and I would love the push to do so!

I re-read the first 3 (on audiobook, on my commute) just before lockdown, would be up for this.

YES PLEASE. oops didn't mean to write as PratchettDeath. Be an interesting addition to a book club though.

These are among the earliest books I fell in love with; my 4th-grade lit teacher, who was a humorless martinet, handed me "A Wizard of Earthsea" and said, "I think you'll like this." I LOVED IT. So here for this.
