I didn't enjoy Tehanu as much as I did the previous three Earthsea books. I'm not sure if the subject matter wasn't as interesting, or if Le Guin's writing simply wasn't up to her standard. Only the last chapter began to get interesting. It's almost as if this book's sole purpose was to create a bridge to The Other Wind.
I was also bothered by several inconsistencies between Tehanu and the rest of the series. The most glaring one deals with the Master Summoner of Roke: at the end of The Farthest Shore, we learn that he has managed to make it back from the dry land; in Tehanu we're told that, no, he never did and died.
Maybe I need a break from the series. I would still like to read Tales from Earthsea and The Other Wind, but first there are other worlds and authors I should explore.
