I read the first three Earthsea books about 20 years ago (for there were only three back then), but I remembered very little about them beyond that I liked them very much. A couple of years ago I rediscovered Le Guin when I read The Left Hand of Darkness, and I decided I must read more of her stuff. The Dispossessed is sitting here on my bookshelf, but right now I am in the mood for fantasy, not dystopia.
Needless to say, I enjoyed A Wizard of Earthsea very much the second time around, and I'm sure I understood a lot more of it than I did when I was ten or so. It wasn't exactly what I was in the mood for, though. I wanted magic of the Gaiman or Lewis variety, and what I got was closer to Tolkien-lite. Still, it's hard to resist the temptation to start The Tombs of Atuan right away. I want to make some progress in the Merton before I jump into Tombs or the Zelazny (Lord of Light), Ballard (Crash), Clarke (Childhood's End), or Card (Ender's Game).
