    Decades before J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, and even longer before Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind, came a school of magic that clearly inspired them all. It does not take centre stage in this series, Sparrowhawk has that honour, but it does play a major role in the workings of this beautiful fantasy world. And I don’t use that word liberally. Not only is the scenery vivid and vast, bordering upon the picturesque in regards to its language, it is also a [...]

    “I would not ask a sick man to run a race,” said Sparrowhawk, “nor lay a stone on an overburdened back.” It was not clear whether he spoke of himself or of the world at large. Always his answers were grudging, hard to understand. There, thought Arren, lay the very heart of wizardry: to hint at mighty meanings while saying nothing at all, and to make doing nothing at all seem the very crown of wisdom."There are surely better passages to quote than the above to encapsulate the meaning or t [...]

    This wraps up Le Guin's original trilogy of Ged, better known as Sparrowhawk, the greatest wizard of Earthsea, and even though I really enjoyed it, something about it keeps nagging me. It's about death, the deathlands, and the end of magic. That's not the problem. In fact, that's the best part of it. I suppose it's just the feel that this story is the end of Ged after I just started to get to know him. That cocky kid and cocky adult just metamorphosed into an old man. I mean, sure, he's still th [...]

    The farthest shore (The Earthsea Cycle, #3), Ursula K. Le GuinDarkness threatens to overtake Earthsea: the world and its wizards are losing their magic. Despite being wearied with age, Ged Sparrowhawk — Archmage, wizard, and dragonlord — embarks on a daring, treacherous journey, accompanied by Enlad's young Prince Arren, to discover the reasons behind this devastating pattern of loss. Together they will sail to the farthest reaches of their world — even beyond the realm of death — as the [...]

    I'm somewhat conflicted by this book. It took me longer to read than expected. I really, really enjoyed The Tombs of Atuan You can read my review here:- /review/showI therefore had high hopes for 'The Farthest Shore'. However it disappointed. In a nutshell I didn't enjoy this book. Before I go into why I didn't, the obligatory free plug: My first fantasy novel is currently free on all good ebook retailers. If you like fantasy, please give it a look. The Last Dragon SlayerRight! Now that's out of [...]

    As usual with Le Guin's books, the flow of the plot is not the strong point. It's more about the sum of experiences and discussions that the characters have, if that makes any sense. So although this one has a more hackneyed plot than any other book of hers I've read, there are (as usual) quite a few really nice moments and deep insights. She spins out some more thoughts about balance and equilibrium, continuing the conversation from A Wizard of Earthsea. Here, Earthsea is being overrun by greyn [...]

    I started reading this to Miloš & Brontë at the beginning of March, and somewhere around May they lost interest. I don't think I can blame Ursula K. LeGuin, at least not entirely. I was a big part of the problem. I struggled with this installment of The Earthsea Cycle, and that must have translated into the way I read this aloud, making it and me tough to listen to (never have the kids fallen asleep so often while I was reading. I usually have to tear myself away).My problem is tough to pi [...]

    The Farthest Shore was written for tweens and teens, so if you just want a good fantasy full of adventure and daring and DRAGONS (the best part!), ignore all of the following and just enjoy. This is a story the meaning of which will derive from the beliefs of the individual reader. Had I read it when I still held spiritual beliefs, I would doubtless have fit the story into a framework of religious allegory and symbolism. As I am now comfortable in my unbelief, I focused on the more concrete them [...]

    Serinin en beğendiğim halkası oldu. Zannedersem bunda en önemli etken, kitabın temasının 'ölüm' olması oldu. Zira benim de hayatım boyunca üzerinde kafa yorduğum, hala Arren gibi kabullenmekte zorlandığım bir olgu olması beni hikayeye mıhladı. Ged'i tüm toyluğundan sıyrılmış, fikirleriyle ergin olarak görmek; satır aralarına yerleştirilmiş Bergmanvari bilgece sözlerle aklımı meşgul etmek ve kemik seriye yakışır güzel bir sonla hikayenin ilk durağında dinle [...]

    It's really hard for me to write a review for this book, because this book changed my perception regarding it dramatically from start to the end. Initially when I started it I really liked how the story was flowing in it, but then Le Guin starts introducing a lot of philosophy in the middle, at that time I thought what the hell is going on ?. What am I reading ? whether this is fantasy or a philosophical book ? but she manages to tie things up masterfully at the end that I devoured this book in [...]

    This one is between 3 and 4 stars for me, but I'm feeling generous so I'm giving it a 4.All over Earthsea wizards are losing their magic, so Ged Sparrowhawk and Prince Arren embark on a quest to discover the source of the disappearing magic.While this one again starts off rather slow as Le Guin builds the scene, and the action doesn't occur until the end, I'm stating to enjoy the world she has created more and more as it is slowly revealed.I also enjoyed the characters a great deal more in this [...]

    He was a peerless sailor, though. Arren had learned more in three days' sailing with him, than in ten years of boating and racing on Berila Bay. And mage and sailor are not so far apart; both work with the powers of sky and sea, and bend great winds to the use of their hands, bringing near what was remote. Archmage or Hawk the sea-trader, it came to much the same thing.He was a rather silent man, though perfectly good-humored. No clumsiness of Arren's fretted him; he was companionable; there cou [...]

    What I loved about this book was the more philosophical analysis of the nature of mankind (are they evil?) and questions regarding other topics that fascinate mankind, such as immortality. I also realize this is the second book about Ged but with a different point of view. And I like it, it provides a fresh and different perspective, people of different background and knowledge talking about their lives and their interaction with Ged. It is just a marvelous story that is worth reading if you are [...]

    Povestea înaintează parcă mai încet decât celelalte două. La fel de minunat însă, stilul Ursulei Le Guin, simplu și clar construiește o poveste despre viață și moarte, pe firul unui bildungsroman, traseul formării unui tânăr prinț. Învățăturile pe care acesta le câștigă și experiențele prin care trece sunt neprețuite și îl construiesc ca om, ca rege. Mi-au plăcut teribil dragonii și felul în care povestea îi prinde în țesătura ei.

    This is the third book in the Earthsea Cycle, closing out the trilogy, though the stories of Earthsea continue with subsequent books. The story picks up years after book two ends, when Ged is middle-aged and has become the Archmage of Roke, which is the center of wizardry in that world, housing a school for those in training. Roke is isolated, though well protected from hostile invasion. This gives little comfort to Ged when he learns that wizards in other parts of Earthsea have lost their magic [...]

    It requires a special talent to write a boring fantasy book.(I couldn't finish this. It's the weakest volume of the series by far. The storyline is jagged and thin. Nothing happens. Overall, it was a tedious read with rare moments of interest, and I think I'm going to ditch it.)

    Evet. Üçleme bitti. Seri devam ediyor ama bu üçlemenin son kitabı oldu. Spoiler veriyrum vaziyet alın;(view spoiler)[Çevik Atmaca öldü. (hide spoiler)]Seri bence çok güzeldi. Hiç heyecanlanmadan tatlı tatlı okunup bitti. Tam bir maceraydı diyemeyeceğim. Hatta çokta boşluklar var.Çevik Atmaca zorlu bir eğitimin ardından büyücü oluyor ve biz bu sırada onu izleyemiyoruz. İlk kitapta Usta Ogion'un Gont'ta bir çoban çocukken keşfettiği genç Ged, ikinci kitapta karşım [...]

    People like to talk about "The Golden Compass" as the athiestic answer to C. S. Lewis' Narnia series. However Ursula Le Guin's series has a far better claim to this title. In these books, the most trenchant critiques of religion, and the best arguments for humanism are presented. In the first book, the greatest enemy is within the protagonist, who must name his darkest self in order to overcome. Old powers are present throughout, and fear is their power. In the second book we see this replayed, [...]

    Good story, bad prose.When I was in high school, I read an Ursula K. Le Guin story in my Science Fiction Literature class. I found it to be difficult to read. I chalked that up to being young and a relatively inexperienced reader. I saw this book at a library book sale and picked it up to give it a try.I discovered that being young an inexperienced had nothing to do with her stories being hard to read. She uses peculiar word order that confuses the meaning, missing or extra commas, excessive adv [...]

    Seri başından beri bu tatta olsaydı lanse edildiği kadar efsane olduğuna inanabilecektim sanırım. 3 kitabın sonunda söyleyebildiğim sadece: "Çok dağınık ama kendini bir şekilde okutan cinsten" olduğudur.Ben bu seriyi sabahları trafik gürültüsü altında, işe gitmek için servis beklerken tüketmeyi planlıyorum zira fazlası bir zaman ayırmaya pek gönüllü değilim.Özelinde, 3tap olarak yorumlarsam, Yerdeniz'in en iyisiydi şu ana kadar ki zaten sonradan uzatılmış bir [...]

    This has always been my least favourite of the Earthsea books, and I think that’s sort of inevitable given the central conflict, the issue that the whole book centres around. It’s about magic dying out, about death and fighting death and being afraid of death, where few people are whole and entire and able to see the world as it is rather than wishing it was something else. Ged is one of those people, of course: he’s the Archmage for a reason, and more importantly, he’s faced the dark pa [...]

    po neni dosta slabija od dvije prethodne knjige. Ged je razvijen do kraja kao lik - junak.i nesto fali. Dosta zapinje kad sam citao i ne budi onakvu zelju za citanjem kao ranije. A sad odmor od Zemljomorja moja domaca zadaca je zavrsena.

    En Uzak Sahil, diğer iki kitaba nazaran en fazla hoşuma giden hikaye oldu. Bu seriye bir türlü kitap diyemiyorum çünkü sanki küçük küçük hikayeler birbirini kovalıyor. İçerik açısından da öyle. Ursula Le Guin'in hikayeyi daha heyecanlı anlatayım gibi bir gayesi yok. Cümleler çok uzun. Öyle ki sanırım her bir cümlede ortalama 4-5, kimisinde 8-9 virgül var. Çevirmene sabırlar diliyorum.Belki kendimi tekrar edeceğim ama bu okuduğum kitap 45 yıllık! Dolayısıyla 1 [...]

    This is my third attempt to review this book; the first attempt reached only one sentence before I deleted it; the second reachedt even one character before I gave up, but now I've thought of a way to approach it, so here goes, wish me luck trying to do it justice.Each of the first three Earthsea books is a coming of age story. In the first Ged has to face and accept his own mortality in order to truely begin his adult life. In the second Arha must choose between conforming to the narrow and wor [...]

    Ο νεαρός γιός του Πρίγκιπα των Ενλάδων, ο Άρεν, καταφθάνει στην νήσο Ροκ κομίζοντας στους εννέα θεματοφύλακες των μαγικών τεχνών που διδάσκουν εκεί την πανάρχαια τέχνη, δυσάρεστα νέα. Ο Γέροντας Αρχιμάγιστρος Γκεν, ο Κοσμήτορας της Σχολής, θα διακρίνει στο πρόσωπο του παιδ [...]

    Ged Her zamanki gibi kendine has durusuyla bir sonraki sayfada neler olacak diyerek kendini merakla okutan, sonunda "ne yani, bu kadar mi?" dedirten, serinin bir sonraki kitabina gecmek icin acele ettirten kahramanBu defa da "buyuleyiciydi" bu defa da surukleyiciydi. Ölmeden once bu seriyi mutlaka okumalisiniz!

    Attempting to describe a great book is a bit like attempting to describe the beauty of a sunrise: It was red and stuff was glowing orange and yellow. It just doesn't translate. Which is an interesting thing to my mind because OF COURSE a sunset doesn't translate. It's photons and light beams and refraction and fire and energy, no mere words. But shouldn't a book? It IS mere words.But it's not. It's the fatigue you feel at the end of a work day when you recline in your favorite chair and open the [...]

    On average, I would say I enjoyed this book about as much as I had enjoyed the previous two books, but maybe less in some ways, and more in other ways.In the very beginning of book one, we were told Ged would eventually be an Archmage. At the beginning of this book, we find that this has come to pass and Ged is now the Archmage at the school on Roke. Prince Arren, a teenager introduced in this book, has traveled to Roke to tell the wizards that people seem to be losing their ability to work magi [...]
