He is a full-grown man, alone in dense forest, with no trail to show where he has come from and no memory to tell who or what he is. His eyes are not the eyes of a human. The forest people take him in and raise him almost as a child, teaching him to speak, training him in forest lore, giving him all the knowledge they have. But they could not solve the riddle of his past, and at last he has to set out on a perilous quest to find his true self--and a universe of danger.… (més)

Reading this taught me one thing: Even your favorite author can write boring books. The first half felt like a loosely connected series of misadventures in a winter wasteland (I swear Ursula has a thing for winter adventures), and the second half was some sort of mind game that ends with the author trolling the reader. Well, I'm still glad I read it once. ( )

The last of the initial three Hainish novellas, this book follows semi-directly from Planet of Exile and is best read after it. In many ways it is my favorite of the three, though I think that it creates a less cohesive or consistent story than Rocannon's World. But I loved the sun-powered looms, the speaking animals, the patterning frames, the translucent towers, the way that the book tackles the idea of self and truth and the "reverence for life" in disturbing and revealing ways. My favorite part of the book, though, may be just the initial passage of the nameless wordless Falk running through the forest.

As with most all of Le Guin's writing, the treatment of women leaves something to be desired. Le Guin herself has talked about how she struggled to move away from the idea of men being the center of the story in fiction. Estrel is an interesting character, but definitely peripheral to Falk's story, and falls into many of the usual tropes of being the "woman character" of the book.

By the way, I wonder if China Mieville's Embassytown ways directly influenced by City of Illusions. It certainly feels like a spiritual successor at least-- Ariekei Language and how it precludes or creates lies inEmbassytown remind me a lot of how lying in mindspeech is handled in this book. ( )

Almost a 3 but rounding down because the gender politics are awful. Also spicing your food is deceptive apparently lol ( )

The last of the three early works that are loosely grouped together. It has distant ties to Planet of Exile. On a far future Earth, a man comes out of the forest with strange eyes and no memory. The small isolated community cares for him until he is ready to seek his identity on a journey across the continent. He meets with extremes of kindness and cruelty as his trip becomes more and more like a strange hallucination. His character, in itself, is less interesting than the adventure. (June 10, 2005) ( )
