Every novella by Ursula K. Le Guin, an icon in American literature, collected for the first time - and introduced by the legendary author - in one breathtaking volume.

Ursula K. Le Guin has won multiple prizes and accolades, from the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters to the Newbery Honor, Nebula, Hugo, World Fantasy, and PEN/Malamud awards. She has had her work collected over the years but never as a complete retrospective of her longer works, as represented in the wonderful The Found and the Lost.

    "Masterpiece!"

    Ursula La Guine delivers an absolute masterpiece!

    The Found of the Lost is one of the most incisive anthology of sci-fi and fantasy that I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Le Guin is an absolute master! She expertly delves into into magic, slavery, gender, misogyny, patriarchy, theology, the nature and formation of family and the terrible fragility of life.

    The stories flows through all of these topics in creative, lyrical and at times whimsical pros that are delivering in fantastic narrations. She does this all while building credible strong and clear futuristic sci-fi speculative fiction and imaginative fantastic alternate worlds.

    This has to be one of the best narrations ever put together on audible. The production was outstanding.

    "very good"

    I loved the variety of stories and hearing about my dear friend ged once more. the only problem I found wasn't a book or story issue but is the listing of chapter numbers vs story names and titles. I LOVED the final story and a few between but it would be hard to go back to the beginning of them to re "read" it.

    "LeGuin carries us far outside and deep within."

    I never imagined enjoying a collection of stories more than a long, tightly-woven tapestry, but so it is.

    "Thoroughly Enjoyable"

    I've relished this author's works more than fourth years now and have always enjoy the psycho-social ponderings of writers such as Le Guin who exam gender roles in non-traditional fantastical cultures. The narration was very engaging. Being new to audio books, It was surprisingly effortless to give over control to the narrator. Good story telling!

    "Not my cup of tea..."
    Has The Found and the Lost turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Too much sexual morals discussion, jus got boring...


    Have you listened to any of Alyssa Bresnahan and Jefferson Mays ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Do you think The Found and the Lost needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope, not for me


    Any additional comments?

    Just wasn't for me, not enough science fiction
