Best. Fantasy. Series. Ever.

Superb.

I binge-listened to all the Earthsea books on Audible. They’re that good.

The most poignantly esoteric of fantasy writers, sailing with the full force of the mage-winds of Earthsea!

This is a wonderful work of fantasy writing by an author who has influenced many other writers in the genre, such as Terry Pratchett. This book has some wonderful esoteric passages and weaves together plots from the previous stories. The narrator, who also did the unabridged recordings of JRR Tolkien's Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, is the perfect choice to do this book justice - if only Rob Inglis could have been persuaded to all the books in the Earthsea Cycle!

Hard At First. You Won't Regret It

Any additional comments?

Right off the bat I thought to myself. Did I just make a big mistake? I loved Robert Inglis in the Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit so I purchased all three Earthsea books in a row and figured they would have to be good because the Narrator was good. I was a little confused at first but she has a unique writing style that will grow on you. This is one of those books that you really can't casually listen too. You really have to pay attention otherwise you are going to be lost. After finishing all the books I purchased the last two she wrote in this series. The Other Wind and The Last Book of Earthsea. There's just something magical about this place and her writing style and the characters. I would def give it a shot but expect a more serious book rather than some laughs like Harry Potter or Lord of The Rings even. I'd still highly recommend it and don't regret listening to it.

Finale but not final

I definitely recommend reading this series as a whole, and in order. This book is far more satisfying when you've read the previous two and understand how everything -- and magic, in particular -- works in the world of Earthsea. Even though the overarching plot is about magic, nearly all the details and characters are non-magical, which somehow drew me in more. The story brought a few things full-circle, left minor things unresolved, and did a wonderful job of giving a resolution without a concrete conclusion. I felt I could daydream all day about what happened to the people of Earthsea after I was done reading, which is the best way to end a book.

A slow tragedy, but well told

This book is written to a slow, almost glacial pace. It seems oddly realistic and is quite good at drawing the reader in, but eventually even the most patient reader will get bored. Having said all of that, it ends well if in a bit of tragedy. I'm left hoping that the story of Ged does not end so, especially considering his noble sacrifice.

I see why it's a classic

Such an excellent story with very human characters and set in a fascinating world, all narrated spectacularly.

Lovely voice

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is my first audiobook: I bought it by accident! But a real treat in the evening to listen quietly with my eyes closed and imagine the magical world. I read the 1st book (also terrific) but this was so relaxing, even better than watching TV ( although it will take some doing to convince my husband!).

Which character – as performed by Rob Inglis – was your favorite?

Mr Inglis did all of the characters quite well-- he has a beautiful voice--but I imagined Sparrowhawk a bit younger ( but the sexiness was in there!)

Any additional comments?

Very nice experience for my first audiobook!

Bored

Dreadfully boring narration over a text that takes too long to get anything done, where characters talk endlessly about things they could have said in a couple of sentences. There's a decent story under all of these things but I didn't have the patience to get to it.

Enjoyable read

A good read, although I wish the epic/fight scenes could be stretched out a bit. Ursula seems to end these moments too abruptly for my liking.

<br />A big step down from the first two

Long winded, not much happens, drawn out. Saved by the appeal of the protagonist Gedd.
