it was ok
bookshelves: young-adult, fantasy

The big surprise for me was that LeGuin, who I thought was a feminist, didn't have any strong female characters in this book.

I think Terry Prachett's book "Equal Rites" is a parody of "Wizard of Earthsea" with a female lead character instead of male.

I wonder if LeGuin, or anyone else has picked up on this.
