Quick Takes on some of my January reading by starweaver on Thu Feb 12, 2009 12:43 pm
The Other Wind by Ursula K. LeGuin: I read the original Earthsea trilogy in the 1970s, and loved it. I read Tehanu when it came out, and enjoyed visiting Earthsea again, although that novel seemed less magical, more mainstream in a way. I encountered The Other Wind in a used book store a view years back, and finally got around to reading it. The book explores several themes that permeate Earthsea: the nature of dragons, the nature of death (and the differing understandings of it in the Archipelago and the Kargad lands), and the origins of magic. She ties these things together in a satisfying way, and the narrative is a pleasure to read. The book's shortcoming, for me, is that the cast of characters (Ged, Tenar, Lebannen, Tehanu) is essentially handed down from earlier books. They each contribute a bit to the story, but there is no one here who really captures our attention, no viewpoint character or protagonist.
