What Members Thought

Some thoughts:

I marveled at her prose and her conciseness and simultaneous epicness in A Wizard of Earthsea, and le Guin doesn't lose any of that in The Tombs of Atuan. At all.

I love that Ged grows up, that he can have (relatively) normal interactions with someone, that he's unflinchingly honest and brave. I think it helps that Tenar is a priestess, so he can respect her powers and not feel like a loner the way he does with most people, people who are oblivious to the constant weight of power.
