So...What did everyone think?
I finished the novel a couple of days ago. I have to say I was really impressed. It read very fast and easy, but was still dark and sophisticated enough to have me really engaged all the way through. Le Guin really seems to have a knack for fiction that appeals to many age groups. I know our library had this in the "young adult" section, but I still thought it was quite adult, even dark.
Here are some prompts that Laura and I thought of (actually, mostly Laura):
-What is the significance of the Shadow? What do you think it is?
-What does Ged learn? How does he change?
-Is Ged good, bad or somewhere in between?
-What did you want to learn more about? Do you want to read more in this series?
-Is there anything you didn't like about the book?
-What do you think of Le Guin's writing style? Did anything stand out to you, style-wise?
