The Farthest Shore [#books #review]

by Ursula K. Le Guin

Earthsea
The Tombs Of Atuan
Tehanu


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.
Ged

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! :)
