    When Sparrowhawk casts a spell that saves his village from destruction at the hands of the invading Kargs, Ogion, the Mage of Re Albi, encourages the boy to apprentice himself in the art of wizardry. So, at the age of 13, the boy receives his true name - Ged - and gives himself over to the gentle tutelage of the Master Ogion. But impatient with the slowness of his studies and infatuated with glory, Ged embarks for the Island of Roke, where the highest arts of wizardry are taught.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I don't regret the time spent listening because I listened to the book while driving long distances. I do, however, regret spending the credit on the book. It just wasn't worth it.


    What was most disappointing about Ursula K. Le Guin???s story?

    The development of the main character was adequate, but the other characters were thin and quite frankly boring.


    What three words best describe Rob Inglis???s voice?

    I enjoyed the tenor and accent of his voice; it seems fitting that he had a somewhat formal English accent. The pauses in his reading sometimes made the sentence confusing; I had to rewind or miss the next few sentences trying to parse what was said.


    Did A Wizard of Earthsea inspire you to do anything?

    The book inspired me not to trust the sources that indicated it was a great book.

    Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

    "I liked the narrator"
    Overall

    Many other reviewers will walk you through the book and its many fine attributes. However, many were dismayed with the Narrator. I actually liked his voices very much and found myself smiling a lot.
