Description

Every novella by Ursula K. Le Guin, an icon in American literature, collected for the first time - and introduced by the legendary author - in one breathtaking volume.

Ursula K. Le Guin has won multiple prizes and accolades, from the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters to the Newbery Honor, Nebula, Hugo, World Fantasy, and PEN/Malamud awards. She has had her work collected over the years but never as a complete retrospective of her longer works, as represented in the wonderful The Found and the Lost. This collection is a literary treasure chest that belongs in every home library.

Masterpiece!

Ursula La Guine delivers an absolute masterpiece!

The Found of the Lost is one of the most incisive anthology of sci-fi and fantasy that I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Le Guin is an absolute master! She expertly delves into into magic, slavery, gender, misogyny, patriarchy, theology, the nature and formation of family and the terrible fragility of life.

The stories flows through all of these topics in creative, lyrical and at times whimsical pros that are delivering in fantastic narrations. She does this all while building credible strong and clear futuristic sci-fi speculative fiction and imaginative fantastic alternate worlds.

This has to be one of the best narrations ever put together on audible. The production was outstanding.

very good

I loved the variety of stories and hearing about my dear friend ged once more. the only problem I found wasn't a book or story issue but is the listing of chapter numbers vs story names and titles. I LOVED the final story and a few between but it would be hard to go back to the beginning of them to re "read" it.

I loved this book BUT

Any additional comments?

I Loved this book BUT
I hated the fact that there was no index of the stories so you couldn't find the start of any individual story, or if your reading app put you in the wrong place in a story you couldn't
even find the story that you were listening to in the index

Chapters do not align with story

It is very difficult to follow this collection since the chapter stops do not align with the stories. One cannot begin listening to a story in the middle of the collection since stories aren’t book marked.

LeGuin carries us far outside and deep within.

I never imagined enjoying a collection of stories more than a long, tightly-woven tapestry, but so it is.

Ursala Le Guin rediscovered

I remember being fascinated by the thoroughly human descriptions Ursula colours stories with, which I read many years ago, when I was a youth.

It was delightful to have the same experience again with this anthology.

I can’t wait for them to make a screen adaptation.
Thought provoking and entertaining!

Thoroughly Enjoyable

I've relished this author's works more than fourth years now and have always enjoy the psycho-social ponderings of writers such as Le Guin who exam gender roles in non-traditional fantastical cultures. The narration was very engaging. Being new to audio books, It was surprisingly effortless to give over control to the narrator. Good story telling!

Excellent

So happy to have read this collection. Such a creative mind writing of other worlds. Strong characters in familiar situations had me hooked. More to read.

Great Collection

Ursula K Le Guin has been my favorite author for a long time, so I was excited to find so much of her in one place. This is a very high quality collection. Le Guin really shines at worldbuilding and making us love characters quickly, so I honestly think she's at her best when she's writing shorter narratives. Many of the stories are interrelated, so you will get to know some worlds very well after reading three novellas that take place on the same planet, but you see them from different points of view. Several stories take place on a planet whose society is centered around the owning of slaves. You will see this planet through the eyes of a soldier who fought and lost a war against a slave revolution, You will also see this planet through the eyes of a couple different off-planet visitors and hear their varying responses to encountering slavery. Finally, you'll see it through the eyes of a woman who was herself a slave. This series of novellas was probably my favorite thing I read this year.

Le Guin's works are everything Sci-fi should be

From space adventure to contemporary drama to high fantasy, Le Guin mixes rich imaginings with deep and compelling characters.

Whether you're a Star Trek fan or a lover of her Earthsea fiction, there's stories for you to love in this compelation.

Can't recommend it enough.
