Last night I finished reading Ursula Le Guin’s Voices. I can remember being blown away by her original Wizard of Earthsea trilogy (and then latterly, quartet), but I was disappointed by the more recent fifth outing for the world, The Other Wind. As for this book, the second in a second series of books set in Earthsea, I struggled to read. I just didn’t get gripped by it, and if I’m honest, I’m not sure if I understood the plot.
