A Wizard of Earthsea (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 1)

A Wizard of Earthsea - Ursula K. Le Guin This book is simply magical. I feel no shame saying The Earthsea trilogy are the greatest pieces of literature since Shakespeare, maybe even of all time. Ursula K. Leguin is a true artist who brings a colorful world to life in ways no other author ever has or maybe ever will again for me. I still have my original books and pull them out at least once a year to read again. No other fantasy books have ever felt this magical to me. A true work of art.

How this book gets anything less than 5 stars is beyond me. Did you'll read the same book I did? I would dare to put the Earthsea cycle above the Lord of the Rings any day. Ursula K. LeGuin is a true master of the craft.
