  1. I got this as a gift, from a friend who knew I d read the Earthsea books the first four than once.These tales are based on the world of Earthsea, and the author reports that they are best read after reading the first four novels of the Earthsea collection I would concur, as it adds the necessary depth and context for entering the world of these tales.The first tale in this book is called The Finder and I found myself quietly weeping near the end of it Stunning, to be moved so It made me want to [...]

  4. Do you trust me, Dragonfly Yes Will you trust me entirely, wholly knowing that the risk I take for you is greater even than your risk in this venture Yes Then you must tell me the word you will speak to the Doorkeeper She stared But I thought you d tell it to me the password The password he will ask you for is your true name He let that sink in for a while, and then continued softly, And to work the spell of semblance on you, to make it so complete and deep that the Masters of Roke will see you [...]

  5. Muhtesemdi Serinin onceki kurgulariyla paralel hikayelerden olusuyordu Ne ara sonuna geldin anlamadim Ozellikle Iriali Bu serinin her kitabindan ayri bir keyif aldim Her ne kadar Ged in kendine has oykusunu cok ozlemis olsam da yeni karakterlerle tanismak guzeldi Nasil bir hayal dunyasidir Le Guin inki bilmiyorum Ama cok derin oldugu hissettigim tek sey Satir aralarinda dusunduren cumleler vardi Dikkatimi cekenlerden bazilari sunlar E er kendimizden ba ka herkes k le olacaksa, bizim h rriyetimiz [...]

  6. If you read nothing else from this collection, you should grab this to read Dragonfly The other stories fill in bits and pieces of the background, or use the world to tell a new story that is small in scope compared to Ged s Dragonfly , on the other hand, is necessary to my mind to really understanding The Other Wind, and should definitely be read first It introduces a character who becomes important, and events which are referred to throughout the novel.As for the writing of the stories themsel [...]

  7. UKL is one of my favorite authors of all time, one of two authors along with Tolkien whose fantasy I love because it feels real to me down to the deepest level This book is five stories set in the same world as her Earthsea novels All five are just jewels They flesh out that universe a bit , in quite interesting ways, and all are delightful in their own right, as well One is from the time that Ged is Archmage Another is from after his time One is from long ago, telling something of how the schoo [...]

  8. Tales from Earthsea is an anthology of five stories that take place at various time periods before, during, and after the previous four books In the author s introduction, she says these stories should be read after the first four books I would definitely agree I think some of these stories would be less meaningful without already knowing how they fit into the larger story I normally find anthologies to be pretty unsatisfying, because the stories are so short and I like longer, meatier stories H [...]

  9. My Earthsea experience was a long time ago it s been at least 10 years since I read any of them Back then, I plowed through the original trilogy and was sort of surprised by Tehanu, which I found kind of slow I told myself, Newer Le Guin just isn t my thing But it turns out that I was wrong, not Le Guin clearly I just needed to grow up a bit These 5 stories showed me that sometimes thoughtful, strong, tree like characters are interesting than ACTION PACKED ACTION They re beautiful and important [...]

  10. These stories were not nearly as compelling as the first four Earthsea books, either in the plot or the writing Also, several stories seem overly concerned with demonstrating that women have importance in Earthsea than the fist three books indicate, especially the last story, Dragonfly This story and the first one, The Finder, read as though the author is trying to re write women into the Earthsea stories as an afterthought I didn t mind their near absence in the first three books, so their pos [...]

  12. La nota era obvia desde el vamos, porque qui n iba a dudarlo, pero realmente estos cuentos merecen m s que eso.Ten a un poco de miedo de no poder leer esto ahora mismo, pero no se me ocurr a mejor forma que enfrentar la tristeza de haber perdido a Ursula que ley ndola Y fue el consuelo perfecto porque Terramar siempre es como un hogar al que volver.Lo que m s me llevo de estos relatos es conocer m s sobre la historia de este mundo, sobre todo de dos cosas en particular el origen de la escuela de [...]

  13. Ursula Le Guin is a very good writer and the Earthsea series of books are worthwhile reading I m not a natural target when it comes to fantasy sci fi but I do appreciate and greatly admire the quality of Le Guin s writing These short stories which are set at various times throughout the history of her invented world often relate to an event sometimes only touched on in the other books We also meet some of the characters from the five main books in these tales It also includes the story Dragonfly [...]

  14. Overall Rating 3.5 It s cool how Ursula tried to show some cohesion between all the stories and the different events and histories that preceded them The effort is very laudable, but the results weren t all that I mean, yes, in regards to giving us a broader feel of Earthsea, she did a remarkable job, but as for reeling us in, getting us to feel for the characters, capture empathy and all that, it wasn t really working Most of these stories were disjointed, or I never really got into them until [...]

  15. On the whole, a pretty interesting collection of stories I m still uneasy about the fact that LeGuin felt the need to go back and change Earthsea, make it politically correct but, if you can get over that, her writing is still quite good The Bones of the Earth was probably my favorite story of five, brief and heart wrenching The Finder dragged on for a bit too long, I felt Darkrose and Diamond had a bitter ending, not what I was expecting at all All along, I cherished a foolish hope that Irioth [...]

  17. The I read Le Guin the less I like her writing She has no sense of pacing or plotting whatsoever, leaving the single event of each book or story until the last few pages, reached only after a slow and tedious preamble in which the characters sit around doing nothing as if that s a plot point or an action of its own , and somehow we re supposed to identify with them in their non quest for nothing Some of her characters show promise, but we never see it come to true fruition.I appreciate her Taoi [...]

  19. Some of this was ok other parts were torture to read so boring I found myself skimming I had already bought this whole series or there is no way I would finish reading it but just one to go.

  20. Since I m one of those people who have the luxury of reading these books one after another in a short period of time as in, the first book of this cycle is older than me There are no years in between reading them I enjoy how Le Guin builds her world and through the stories in this book I enjoyed the story about the founding of Roke, the run away wizard Diamond, Ogion s past and how his master found his end when they stilled the earthquake, the episode about Sparrowhak s past as archmage and ho [...]

  21. While some of these stories were beautiful little gems in themselves, especially Dragonfly, On the High Marsh and The Bones of the Earth, some of Le Guin s earlier ease in creating magic effortlessly is lost While some of her lyrical imagery and simple way with words remain, the effort of going back to enlighten us about the past by inserting women into the founding of Roke and women s role in magic feels forced and mechanical, a conscious effort to right perceived wrongs in the earlier novels A [...]

  22. This was excellent I struggle with how many stars to give this, settling on four only because I didn t love it quite as much as I loved the novels in this series Not fair I suppose as I did really enjoy it This is a series of stories about Earthsea They filled in a lot of gaps and answered many questions that had occurred to me as I read the other books Stand outs for me were The Finder which took place during the founding of the School on Roke by women and Dragonfly which took immediately prior [...]

  23. Again, 5 stars The I read of Earthsea, the fond of it I become it s already up to the point where while reading stories from Tales from Earthsea my heart was warming with each sentence Le Guin certainly has her brilliant, base knowledge kind of way of telling stories Although two of these stories might qualify as short novels, this was one of the best short story oriented books that I ve read in my life Loved every bit of it The Description of Earthsea is an interesting idea, describing a fict [...]

  24. Tales from Earthsea Ursula K Le Guin, 2001 Come ci spiega nella prefazione e nella postfazione, zia Ursula non era sicura di come proseguire la storia di Tehanu, Tenar e Ged, per cui finito il quarto _Terramare_ ha osservato il suo mondo immaginario dall alto, senza passare per i suoi soliti protagonisti, e le sono venute in mente un po di storie a proposito di com era Terramare in passato, e di cosa la aspetta nel futuro il risultato che il quinto volume della saga un antologia di 5 1 racconti [...]

  25. Technically, Tales from Earthsea was the fifth book written as part of Ursula LeGuin s Earthsea Cycle, but it doesn t follow the story that began with A Wizard of Earthsea chronologically It does, however, provide some fascinating background information and history for the world of Earthsea Tales Tales from Earthsea contains several different tales a novella, four short stories, and a history of the world of Earthsea The novella is called The Finder, and tells the story of Otter Tern Medra durin [...]

  26. The first story in the book, a novella titled The Finder, told the story of how the school of wizardry at the island of Roke came to be I have never been much fond of creation stories To add to that, this seemed deliberately written to sound archaic It was a huge put off after my exhilarating run through the first four books of the Earthsea cycle I abandoned the short story collection for an entire week before picking up where I had left off The Finder was, fortunately, the only story in the boo [...]

  27. Another 3.5 stars for this installment of Earthsea.Tales from Earthsea is, as the title suggests, a book of short fiction Le Guin treats us to five short stories and they are all of them well told They each take place in a different period of time in Earthsea s long history, ranging from further back than we ve ever been up to a period of time that seems to be between Tehanu and the upcoming sixth novel While I enjoyed some than others I think The Bones of the Earth may have been my favorite , [...]
