2019 Pick: The Farthest Shore by Ursula K. LeGuin


This November we'll be reading the third book in Ursula LeGuin's Earthsea cycle, The Farthest Shore. From Goodreads:

Book Three of Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea CycleDarkness threatens to overtake Earthsea: the world and its wizards are losing their magic. Despite being wearied with age, Ged Sparrowhawk -- Archmage, wizard, and dragonlord -- embarks on a daring, treacherous journey, accompanied by Enlad's young Prince Arren, to discover the reasons behind this devastating pattern of loss. Together they will sail to the farthest reaches of their world -- even beyond the realm of death -- as they seek to restore magic to a land desperately thirsty for it.

We'll discuss the book in early December. Looking forward to it!

    I love this series, so very happy to keep exploring it. Each book brings something new, and that’s probably because it wasn’t conceived as a series, but only became a series when the author realized she had more to say.

    Happy December! I hope you are all enjoying our return to Earthsea!

    I've still got a few chapters to go (November was a very demanding month). I expect to have discussion questions ready by the middle of the week.

    That'll give me time to finish it as well :)

    I didn't read it this month, but have read relatively recently, so I'm up for a discussion.

    Discussion questions are up!

    If anyone is interested, my highlights and notes are up on Goodreads.

    I've got a demanding week at work coming up, so I might be delayed in joining in the discussion.
