A BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation, based on the first three books in Ursula Le Guin's best-selling Earthsea cycle.

Set on a vast archipelago of islands, where magic is a central part of life, Earthsea tells the intertwined stories of Ged and Tenar.

Ged is a boy from the island of Gont, born with innate magical talent and a reckless nature, who tampers with long-held secrets and releases a terrible shadow into the world. He must risk everything in order to restore the balance.... Meanwhile, Tenar, a girl from the island of Atuan, is taken from her home and family to become Arha, the Priestess Ever Reborn, guardian of the ominous Tombs of Atuan.

Deep within the Tombs, Ged and Tenar encounter one another and seek a way of bringing peace to the troubled archipelago.

Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea series have sold millions of copies and been translated into 16 languages, and this epic dramatisation of 'A Wizard of Earthsea', 'The Tombs of Atuan' and 'The Farthest Shore' will take you deep into a rich fantasy world of sorcery, wizards and dragons. Among the cast are Shaun Dooley (Broadchurch) and Toby Jones (Dad's Army). Duration: 3 hours 30 minutes approx.

Anxiously awaited!

What made the experience of listening to Earthsea the most enjoyable?

I hove long loved this series and now can listen to it in a new way.

What did you like best about this story?

It is a well-done adaptation. As such it condenses the overall story into a presentation worthy of the long cherished series.

Have you listened to any of Toby Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

While I had not previously heard Toby Jones perform, I will be looking for more of his works.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

While you could enjoy this in one sitting, it matters not for you will enjoy it nonetheless.

Any additional comments?

Chapter 6 will awe you!

The adaptation of Earthsea I never thought I'd see

I liked this very much. The voices were lovely; I could hear the affection between Ged and Tenar. Despite some (heartbreaking) cuts of content, I felt they got to the soul of the books and the simplicity of the last few lines was beautiful.

pacing poor. highly abridged. narrative not straight foward enough. lacks the punch of the bbc's previous Earthsea adaptation.
