Having read the Earthsea novels (five in all, plus a collection of short tales) years ago, I was very happy with this audio version, which is beautifully done. Main A Wizard of Earthsea. A Wizard of Earthsea Le Guin Ursula K.
Ged was the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but in his youth he was the reckless Sparrowhawk. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. Eventually Ged completes his studies and earns his wizard's staff.
