If this were a more adult-oriented story, Tenar (I refuse to call her Arha) would have been more conscious of her loss of family, more resistant to her fate, more difficult to control. For those reasons I took this story rather lightly at first, but now I think I was wrong to do so. Someone who resists from the beginning is only seeking an opportunity to escape. What happens to Tenar is more nefarious. She is given enough power, just enough freedom in her world within its walls, that she can believe herself powerful, believe herself free. The walls of her trap are almost invisible to her, making it that much more difficult to escape. On some subconscious level she is aware of it and oppressed by it, even as she wonders at Penthe's dreams. Her dismissal of the world beyond the walls, beyond the desert, is an attempted dismissal of her own inner doubts. She defers viewing the secret underground treasure in order to preserve at least one last mystery, to make the world she is confined to feel larger than it really is. It is not until Ged's arrival that she feels its true smallness.

The back cover blurb positions Ged as Tenar's rescuer, but I am more interested in how Tenar rescues herself. She preserves Ged's life, this symbol of true freedom. Confronted with an identity crisis, she makes her choice after it is clear that Ged has the power but not the strength to make her obey his will. I read the final escape not just as the Nameless Ones' last grasp, but as Tenar's final answer to whether she will cross beyond the boundaries of all that she knows. I felt sorry for Manan, but the contrast in fates is necessary - someone who never questions, never desires escape. Two chapters of anticlimax feels a bit much in a book this short, but there's the end of a trilogy to prepare for on top of the nice link we're given to the first book. While this was effectively the continuing adventures of Ged, it would have made for a dull tale to hear this story from him. LeGuin moved the viewpoint to Tenar, made her sympathetic, and gave us a new (then scarce) heroine to celebrate. ( )

"Αυτό που είχε αρχίσει να μαθαίνει ήταν το βάρος της ελευθερίας. Η ελευθερία είναι βαρύ φορτίο, μεγάλο και παράξενο εγχείρημα για οποιοδήποτε πνεύμα. Δεν είναι δώρο θεόσταλτο, αλλά συνειδητή επιλογή, και η επιλογή μπορεί να είναι δύσκολη. Ο δρόμος προς το φως είναι ανηφορικός, αλλά ο φορτωμένος ταξιδιώτης μπορεί να μη φτάσει ποτέ στο τέλος του".

I read A Wizard of Earthsea to my family last year, and it really captivated me. I had hoped to read more of the series aloud, but my daughter wasn't into it, so I'm picking it back up on my own now. It's a quick and easy read aimed at children (a Newberry book if I'm not mistaken), and so it's nothing earth-shattering or all that profound, though maybe there's profundity in a book for kids that touches on figuring out whom to trust and how?

I'll be honest. Part of me really doesn't like this book. It is dark, and I don't like darkness. So, I've been wanting to want to read it, literally since I first read it 3 years ago. And finally, I read it again. It was, as I said before "a beautiful story of redemption, new life, rebirth." Today I realize that our heights are only as high as our lows. Like the Prophet has said, "The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain." So as Le Guin focuses so much on darkness, she is teaching us about light. And for that reason also, the story is beautiful.

There is also symbolism of the underground labyrinth, emphasis on camaderie prevailing over solitude and isolation, of the power of darkness - exploring indirectly the nature of evil, and the relationship between death and life. Much to chew on and appreciate!

Here were some of my favorite quotes:

"No one can withstand the dark ones long alone."

"You must make a choice. Either you must leave me, lock the door, go up to your alters and give me to your masters, then go to the priestess Kossil, and make your peace with her. And that's the end of the story. Or you must unlock the door and go out of it with me. Leave the tombs. Leave Atuan. And come with me overseas. And that is the beginning of the story. You must be Arha or you must be Tenar. You cannot be both."

"If I leave the service of the dark ones, they will kill me. If I leave this place I will die."
"You will not die. Arha will die."
"I cannot."
"To be reborn, one must die, Tenar. It is not so hard as it looks, from the other side."

"You have set us both free. Alone no one wins freedom."

"Listen to me, Tenar. Heed me. You were the vessel of evil. The evil is poured out. It is done. It is buried in its own tomb. You were never made for cruelty and darkness. You were made to hold light as a lamp burning holds and gives its light. I found the lamp unlit. I won't leave it on some desert island like a thing found and cast away. I will take you to Havnor and will say to the princes of Earthsea, in the place of darkness I found the light - her spirit. By her an old evil was brought to nothing. By her I was brought out of the grave. By her the broken was made whole. And where there was hatred, there will be peace."

Such beautiful, power themes of renewal, new life, and redemption. Definitely recommended. It's 4 stars instead of 5 because the first of the story is a bit of a slog (but it's important...). You just have to be patient. :) ( )

This is a classic read for the month; I read this book when I was 12, and my only recollection is that I liked it better than the first book though it was odd. At 40, I still find it odd, especially since it was/is shelved with children's books! It can be summarized as "teen girl is convinced of her holiness, murders several people, tortures man, and eventually realizes that maybe she shouldn't do those kinds of things."

Of course, the book is far more nuanced than that--and I did like it much more than Earthsea, which I reread last month. Tombs has a dark vibe, and an almost fully dark setting, but there is genuine growth in Arha, the Eaten One, and that makes the ending especially satisfying. I like Ged much more in this book, too--funny how it is easier to like him when I am out of his perspective. ( )

Carol Reich (KLIATT Review, March 1995 (Vol. 29, No. 2))
Le Guin's 1970 fantasy for YAs (part two of the Earthsea Trilogy) has held up well over the decades and remains engaging. Narrative predominates throughout, but during the dialogue Inglis' voiced characters are never confusing to the listener. The three main female voices are acceptably done, the two main male voices are well done, the recording is clear, and Inglis is skilled enough to drop out of character for phrases such as "she said." Between the two of them, Le Guin and Inglis paint a vivid picture of the devious, threatening labyrinth that exists both underneath the temple and within the heart of the High Priestess whom the Wizard Ged rescues from service to the Nameless Ones. This book can stand alone. Category: Fiction Audiobooks. KLIATT Codes: JS*--Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students. 1994, Recorded Books, 4 tapes, 5.5 hrs.
