I'm learning to fall into line with Le Guin's style - simple in structure, not in thought. She's so.... philosophical, which causes The Dispossessed, at least, to lose its momentum in the middle. I liked the novel, was mentally stimulated when I completed it, but nearly put it down in the middle (something a almost never do...can't remember the last time I aborted a book in the middle....).

That said, I felt like it was a worthwhile read, and now have many thoughts about anarchism that I hadn't developed before.
