Buy it, if only for the last story,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Fisherman of the Inland Sea (Mass Market Paperback)
I read this book two years ago, and honestly, I didn't find most of the stories to be memorable. However, the last story had a profound effect on me. Ursula LeGuin is one of my favorite authors, and "A Fisherman of the Inland Sea" is definitely my favorite LeGuin story. It makes one think about what is really important in life, what makes life worth living (and indeed, liveable at all). It also begs one to ponder the aspects of personal relationships in our society which are often taken for granted. Buy the book if only for the last story. Then read _The Disposessed_ for another side of LeGuin, and another terrific story.
