Useful for what I needed it for 15 Jun. 2013
By Lorena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I didn't read it all, I skipped the part about Terry Pratchett because I haven't read his books and the analysis didn't mean anything to me.
The other two were OK, I focused on the one about Le Guin which is the reason I bought the book. It's good.
