← The Tombs Of Atuan
But only to us is it given to know that we must die. And that is a great gift: the gift of selfhood. For we have only what we know we must lose, what we are willing to lose.
Le Guin is confirmed as one of my favorite writers! I like her particular style very much. First of all this habit she started in the previous book to show us the hero that we already know a little in the background. I like her descriptions of the landscape of Earthsea, always very present and involved in the narrated events. I like the peculiarity of her writing style, when even in the action scenes it's still calm, focused on the dialogues (not that I don't like tense and lively scenes, but this is a characteristic that I found typical in this author, and that she knows very well how to handle in my opinion, and it becomes a distinctive trait of Le Guin).
I look forward to continuing with the Earthsea saga! :)
