Nebula Update: Tehanu

Tehanu (The Earthsea Cycle, #4)Tehanu by Ursula K. Le Guin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was an amazing meditation on age, gender and power. It was also kind of boring. The themes were fascinating, but even more than the first three Earthsea books, nothing much happened (until the very end).

I was disappointed, because I think Le Guin is one of the best science fiction authors ever, but I kept waiting for some wizarding to happen.

I now have seven Best Novel Nebula winners left to read. Since I last checked, The Falling Woman became available for Kindle. In fact, it was on sale for $1.99 a few weeks ago, so that will probably be the next one I read. It's getting to be a feeling of obligation to finish the last few, though, which is why it's taking so long to get around to them.
