    Description

    Years before, they had escaped together from the sinister Tombs of Atuan - she an isolated young priestess, he a powerful wizard. Now she is a farmer's widow, having chosen for herself the simple pleasures of an ordinary life. And he is a broken old man, mourning the powers lost to him not by choice.

    A lifetime ago they helped each other at a time of darkness and danger. Now they must join forces again to help another - the physically and emotionally scarred child whose own destiny remains to be revealed.

    ©1990 Ursula K. Le Guin (P)2016 Recorded Books

    Delivers on Promise of Tenar and the Tombs

    Only a misogynist or someone who heard excerpts could misread this book as feminist preaching. Round characters, beautiful sentences, and a fantastic reader, to boot!

    Rare and gifted narrator

    I do not wish to write a review of this book, because it is a favorite of mine, told in Ursula Le Guin’s spare beautiful way. The characters are more precious to me now that I, like them, are also older. What I most want to comment on is how amazing narrator, Jenny Sterlin is as she gives voice to each character and how easy her voice tells this story. It is rare for me to love a narrator from the start, in fact if the material of a book isn’t interested a poorly chosen narrator can ruin the experience. High marks for Ms Sterlin. I hope she continues to narrate many other audio books.

    Different, in a good way.

    I really enjoyed this one. A far different type of tale, but just as grand in its own way. Recommend.

    Le Guin is incredible

    really interesting change in perspective after the last three. this book challenges each character fundamentally, as well as the world and culture of earthsea, as well as our own world in what it shares with earthsea. it took a more difficult but ultimately rewarding path, and i have nothing but respect and awe for the author.

    some developments do seem convenient or heavy-handed, but they are still effective and don't get in the way of the engaging emotional journeys of the characters - which i see as the main exploration of the book.

    the performance was also fantastic.

    A beautiful story

    It wasn't what I was expecting, but I love it all the more for that.

    I really love her stories.

    Beautiful but Mundane

    Very well-written, and Le Guin (as always) has a knack for making rounded and believable characters. However, unlike the previous books, Tehanu is light on plot. As the author admits in the postscript, Tehanu’s focus is on the ordinary lives of ordinary people, on finding grace in the mundane.

    Unfortunately, experiencing the mundane lives of ordinary people is not why most people (myself included) read fantasy novels. The stakes weren’t high enough, the fantasy element wasn’t strong enough, and the plot plodded. I gave 3/5 stars out of respect for Le Guin’s writing, but (compared to its predecessors) Tehanu was a bit of a disappointment.

    Like a hot coal

    Ursula le guin takes on a new perspective, that of the “powerless”- the women, children, and laymen of earthsea. This book is like a hot coal- it burns with anger, trauma, injustice, and beauty. It deserves to be studied and to be reread over and over.


    The narrator did a fabulous job of harnessing tenar’s voice.

    An excellent story and a brilliant telling.

    Tehanu is a critical and introspective look at female intuition and the expectations society can so often impose, knowingly or unknowingly, upon the wife, mother, sister, and daughter.

    Least favorite book of the series

    This book has to be my least favorite of the series. A little too much feminism for me. Why didn't she make her female characters stronger in the previous books, instead of making the men all weak and insecure. I don't even know if I want to read the last book if it's going to be the same.. There are strong female characters in many great book series without displacing the men. (Mistborn, The wheel of time, Stormlight Archives, Outlander, Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, Hunger Games, Harry Potter...)

    Not like the last 3 books in the series

    Unlike the last 3 books, this one doesn't have an exciting story to tell. It starts with a graphic description of a child being burned nearly to death and then focuses on the thoughts, feelings and experiences of a normal (non magical) woman in earthsea. At the end of the book, my first reaction was, "that was it?"

    Amazing Story.

    A story about vulnerability and strength, full of insight and compassion. It also overthrows some of the classik fantasy sterotypes. Must read.

    Glad it was over

    By far the least well written book of the Earthsea Cycle. The characters sound like broken records, repeating the same questions over and over (this was so bad it almost made me quit, I kept wishing they could just get to the point already), the lovestory comes out of nowhere and the most interesting topic was almost not touched upon. All in all I was so happy when it was finally over.
