Alone, no one wins freedom.
I really love Le Guin. If Tales from Earthsea fascinated me and A Wizard Of Earthsea made me fond of this saga, The Tombs of Atuan definitely won me! I loved everything about this book!!!
I really liked the characters, and the setting was also very beautiful: the first description of the Tombs, for example, affected me so much, it seemed that I was there and could feel their dark and powerful beauty! And then the maze, the rooms, the treasures... What a wonderful journey!
And I loved the story, a story of freedom, anche friendship, and peace... everything, as I said: everything! :)
