A Wizard of Earthsea | Ursula K. Le Guin
post image

Finished it and I am definitely a fan. I‘ve been looking everywhere for book 2. It reminded me of a lot of other fantasy books, though it came first and is clearly the inspiration. I loved the main character‘s journey to humility & dedication. His best friend Vetch & his loyal pet were 2 of my favorites. My one complaint is that I wish I could get to know the characters better, so I‘m glad the series isn‘t over! #Earthsea2018 @BkClubCare

BkClubCare Yay! It took me two days to read it - I just couldn‘t stop! LOL 😂 Guess it was a week long readalong?! 5y
UglyOldBat Still waiting for my copy 😕 5y
AvidReader25 @abandonallhope Don‘t give up! I‘m going to keep reading the series and I just posted on my blog about it. It‘s a fast read! 5y

BkClubCare Hey - sorry I have been unable to comment on your blog post. The securities measures for everything these days - such a killjoy hindrance 5y
AvidReader25 @BkClubCare Ugh. I am so sorry! I‘m so sick of blogger. I just tried to tweak the settings so hopefully that helps. 5y
BkClubCare Nah, it's Google more than anything. I just don't want to log off and re sign in with diff accounts. More than lazy - it's a huge hassle. I am sorry. (edited) 5y

A Wizard of Earthsea | Ursula K. Le Guin

So far this reminds me so much of The Name of the Wind. It‘s also got a little bit of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones (Arya‘s story) mixed in. Ged is so impulsive and has no patience for learning.
“Yet a greater, and learned skill he possessed, which was the art of kindness.” #Earthsea2018 @BkClubCare @bookandcat @abandonallhope @CareBear

Nutmegnc This is one of my all time favs. And it came before Name of the Wind. I bet Patrick Rothfuss would claim it as an influence. 5y
BkClubCare That‘s a great quote abt kindness 5y
BkClubCare (Also, I‘ve never read Name of the Wind nor GOT(nor watched it)!! 5y

AvidReader25 @Nutmegnc I know! I bet so many writers were influenced by this one. 5y
AvidReader25 @BkClubCare LOVED The Name of the Wind! 5y
Nutmegnc @Avidreader25 @BkClubCare Name@of the Wind is incredible. I've read and listened to it maybe 10 times. I read GOT back when it first came out and I was glued to that one then! 5y
AvidReader25 @Nutmegnc Ten times! That‘s amazing. We just need the third book now! 5y
Nutmegnc @Avidreader25 I KNOW!!! 5y

A vacation and a busted car derailed my reading plans, so I bumped this readalong forward a month and we are starting in June! I‘ve been wanting to read Le Guin‘s famous series for years. Anyone who wants to join in the fun is welcome! Post your thoughts on Litsy, Twitter, or Instagram to join in. #Earthsea2018 @BkClubCare @bookandcat @abandonallhope
