I love this book. I re-read it a few months ago and fell in love all over again. Science fiction is often an old boys club, particularly at the time this book was written. Re-reading something that you haven't read since you were in your teens often makes you pause and think. A lot of stuff I loved when I was younger doesn't hold up or just plain make me squirm (a lot of Heinlein's books do that to
me, although I still enjoy a lot of his juvie fiction). This doesn't. Make me squirm I mean. I savored it, appreciated the absolute beauty of this gem of a novel. I believe Le Guin was the first female writers to win a Hugo. I think this book could still win one now. I have to re-read more of this wonderful writer's books.
