A groundbreaking work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness tells the story of a lone human emissary to Winter, an alien world whose inhabitants can change their gender. His goal is to facilitate Winter's inclusion in a growing intergalactic civilization. But to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own views and those of the completely dissimilar culture that he encounters. Embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement.

The narrator was pretty good, but no the best. He wasnt bad, but he didnt have the most energy. the book was awesome though.

The Foundation novels of Isaac Asimov are one of the great masterworks of science fiction. Unsurpassed for their unique blend of nonstop action, daring ideas, and extensive world-building, they chronicle the struggle of a courageous group of men and women to preserve humanity's light against an inexorable tide of darkness and violence.

Absolutely worth the read/listen. A few characters you have to keep track of, but other than that, it's just an incredible story.

A lot of really cool concepts and story beats, but the guy reading it messes up kinda often, and the way he reads the material is done in a way that doesn't make it sound as interesting as it could be if you read it yourself. definitely worth the listen, just use your imagination a little extra.
