My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
Another from NPR's Backseat Bookshelf.
The rating is solely because I don't like high fantasy (I do like low fantasy). I'm pretty sure this A Wizard of Earthsea is good since most people who do like high fantasy like Le Guin and the Earthsea series. If I wanted long descriptions of fantasy worlds and life at wizard school and battles with a mysterious shadow being, I would have loved it.
