Review of A Wizard of Earthsea  by Ursula K. Le Guin

Do you ever find yourself thinking you read a book a long time ago and then realizing you never actually did? No? Only me, I guess.

I have always enjoyed Ursula K. Le Guin’s books, but I realized one day recently I had never read her Earthsea books. How this happened is a mystery. So I started in, knowing it was a highly praised book, with expectations raised, and a slightly apprehensive feeling that it would be impossible to meet them.

I was so glad to be wrong.

A Wizard of Earthsea is a classic for a reason. The writing is exceptional, the storyline is superbly crafted, the words make you think and feel, and it transported me to another world.

Highly recommended for readers of all ages.

I give it 5 stars.
