Review

Praise for The Left Hand of Darkness

"[A] science fiction masterpiece."--Newsweek

"A jewel of a story."--Frank Herbert

"As profuse and original in invention as The Lord of the Rings."--Michael Moorcock

"An instant classic."--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"Like all great writers of fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin creates imaginary worlds that restore us, hearts eased, to our own."--The Boston Globe

"Stellar...A triumphant return to the magic-drenched world of Earthsea...Le Guin is still at the height of her powers, a superb stylist with a knack for creating characters who are both wise and deeply humane. A major event in fantasy literature."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Richly told...Le Guin hasn't lost her touch. She draws us into the magical land and its inhabitants' doings immediately."--Booklist

Synopsis

While on a mission to the planet Gethen, earthling Genly Ai is sent by leaders of the nation of Orgoreyn to a concentration camp from which the exiled prime minister of the nation of Karhide tries to rescue him.
