“A Wizard of Earthsea is a simple but beautiful and magical coming-of-age “
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
I recently re-read this and was once more struck by what a great book it is on so many levels.
First of all, the story is very easy to get into. Our sympathies are immediately with Sparrowhawk/Ged, the central character.
There are no unique terms to try to learn and no being obscure just for the sake of it.
