The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula K. Le Guin

Description: THE TOMBS OF ATUAN introduces Arha, high priestess of the nameless Powers of the Earth, and Ged, a wizard bent on recovering a priceless relic from these Powers. On the one hand, Fantastic Audio's recording presents a rare treat for readers, featuring author LeGuin's performance of the beginning and ending of her book. Unfortunately, narrator Gabrielle de Cuir is a poor match for this wonderful tale. Many of de Cuir's declarative sentences end in a questioning tone, her dialogue is flat, and her characters are difficult to distinguish. Several passages were enhanced by the lightest touch of music. Part of LeGuin's Earthsea Cycle, this book provides the jumping-off point into unknown worlds for many fantasy readers and deserves a more animated reader.

Also in this series are A Wizard of Earthsea, The Farthest Shore, Tehanu, Tales of Earthsea, The Other Wind Return to the Ursula K. Le Guin page.
