Comment: This is a previously read copy. There will be some corner and edge wear to the cover (if soft cover) or dust jacket (if hardcover). Some pages may be dog-eared. The cover and pages may be creased from use, but the book will close squarely. There will be no tears. There are no markings inside or out, with the rare exception of the previous owner's name written inside the cover or on the first page. This is the most common condition we assign to used books. Ships directly from Amazon warehouses.

Ursula Kroeber Le Guin (US /ˈɜːrsələ ˈkroʊbər ləˈɡwɪn/; born October 21, 1929) is an American author of novels, children's books, and short stories, mainly in the genres of fantasy and science fiction. She has also written poetry and essays. First published in the 1960s, her work has often depicted futuristic or imaginary alternative worlds in politics, the natural environment, gender, religion, sexuality and ethnography.

She influenced such Booker Prize winners and other writers as Salman Rushdie and David Mitchell – and notable science fiction and fantasy writers including Neil Gaiman and Iain Banks. She has won the Hugo Award, Nebula Award, Locus Award, and World Fantasy Award, each more than once. In 2014, she was awarded the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Le Guin has resided in Portland, Oregon since 1959.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great series and a classic
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 6, 2018
Good to get the whole series in Kindle format.
However, the missing star is due to the fact that the map at the beginning of each volume are VERY POORLY reproduced.
Their low definition makes it virtually impossible to decipher the names of the islands.
In addition, the missing middle map section deletes some of the islands, or parts of them, which makes it all but unusable.
A reader who doesn't have a hard copy to refer to, or who wouldn't make the effort to download a high quality map from the author's website, would be hard put to follow the travel of the protagonists.
The map sections should be resampled as a matter of urgency, as they are essential to the understanding of the story.
