A classic novel that sets the tone for fantasy in the middle-grade level.

Following a young mage named Ged in the fictional world of Earthsea who has extraordinary magical talent at a very young age. Ged joins the wizarding school and gets into a magical duel with a classmate. During the duel, dark magic is released when one of Ged's spells backfires and the creature attacks Ged. The story is about Ged trying to get free of the shadow creature.

The writing of the novel is simple yet descriptive enough that older readers will enjoy it. Originally classed as children's literature (which LeGuin took offense to!) this novel - series - can be read by all ages. The story is exciting, there are many scrapes and narrow misses Ged finds himself getting into and out of which readers will alternately find scary and stupid; I usually wag my head or eye roll when I read some of Ged's less than stellar ideas. There are elements of Taoism woven throughout detailing the belief in the ideals of balance in the universe as well as the now more popular idea that names have power over people and things and can upset that cosmic balance. A hero epic in structure style lends readability to the story all readers will like.

Overall, a classic of fantasy right up there with Tolkien.

“When will my apprenticeship begin, Sir?” “It has begun,” said Ogion. There was a silence, as if Ged was keeping back something he had to say. Then he said it: “But I haven’t learned anything yet!” “Because you haven’t found out what I am teaching,” ( )

I've read this before, but so long ago that I couldn't have said anything at all about it except that I remember liking it. I'd read it well before I'd read any of Le Guin's SF, too, and I imagine that makes a difference in my impression this time around.

In the afterward of the edition I read Le Guin talks about her wondering what it was like for Gandalf and Merlin to be young boys, and obviously this was written well before Harry Potter. There's a part of me that wants to snatch whatever HP book in is in the ubiquitous fangirl/boy's hands and replace it with WoE and snap at them, "This is what you need to be reading instead of that derivative crap!" I'm so sick to death of Harry Potter.

This novel is sublime. So simple, so contrary to what modern fantasy insists on being. Le Guin is so good at being literate and literary, even within "genre" writing that I think is too often maligned as being "pulp" or "beach reading" (like any fantasy/SF nerd would read or even go to the beach). It's a psychological novel that avoids the ponderously dark, and a coming of age book that seems fresh even though the central idea would be tad cliched if it were written today. But that's the difference between creating a common motif and deriving your work solely from the creations of others--LeGuin reads as timeless, whereas too much of modern fantasy (and hey--WoE is not that old) takes familiar ideas and makes them gratuitously violent and/or needlessly machiavellian. WoE is realistic, poetic, and beautiful, and it builds a world that has dangers without seeming like some medieval hell-scape.

Sometimes I want and enjoy a medieval hell-scape. But it pays to be reminded that there is another way. ( )

Simple, straightforward prose and characters clear the way for a compelling story. Each chapter captures a snippet of Ged's developing life yet somehow creates a dynamic world with minimal character and scene depictions. Familiar story and truly original story. I like you Le Guin.

I really enjoy this book. I started out reading it to my boys (I have read it before at least once). I got a few chapters and they lost interest for now. I finished it by myself. This book hails back to a time when 700 - 800 page books were not required of the author. A minor situation can be described in a paragraph or less.

I enjoyed getting to know the characters, their motives and interests. The magic of Earthsea is distinctive and mysterious. The geography is described in the title - lots of Ocean and the mages of Earthsea are useful particularly for watercraft.

I hope that the new generation of books hasn't detracted younger readers from this kind of story. I wonder if that is why my children lost interest. ( )

The wise man is one who never sets himself apart from other living things, whether they have speech or not, and in later years he strove long to learn what can be learned, in silence, from the eyes of animals, the flight of birds, the great slow gestures of trees.
It is very hard for evil to take hold of the unconsenting soul.
