Though I'm sure I missed some of the "football" jokes being an American who's not into soccer or rugby, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was fun, and, as an academic, I enjoyed the school humor quite a lot.
I have always enjoyed the worlds created by Le Guin. Her character development is excellent and her plots are worthwhile. The first book of this series presents a premise as interesting as the magic in the Earthsea series.
While a bit more brooding than Earthsea, I liked the book and plan to read the whole series.
