  • This was just a tiny little novel, but just packed with stuff I love Individual characters, compelling and interesting, but also embodying different political dogmas, the plot itself so packed with inherent symbolism that it shouldn t have been so light and natural All coming together in a clean fast believable push through another world with the goal of freedom It was beautiful.

  • Ursula Le Guin s The Eye of the Heron looks like an easy, short book My copy is quite slim, the writing is a reasonable size, and the prose is as polished as hers always is, and it s easy to read There are some absolutely amazing quotes, that I loved to read just for the perspective she always brings to the discussion These are the ones that struck me the most in parts of them, description has been taken out to make them universal.a You know, if we sit in the back room, with babies or without b [...]

  • The people of the City arrived on the planet Victoria by one way spaceship, exiled from Earth, convicted criminals Many years later the People of the Peace arrive in the last such spaceship, also exiled, but by choice They form a town and call it Shantih, but the people of the City call it Shanty deftly contrasting the views of the City folk and the townfolk Over time the People of the Peace have become the peasants of a feudal society in microcosm but now confrontation is coming The People of t [...]

  • I literally just bought this book, because it had the name Ursula K Le Guin on it I didn t even read the synopsis before starting it I know you shouldn t judge a book by it s cover, but this book proves you shouldn t judge one by it s size either It covered so much in such a small book Literally less than 200 pages with fairly large lettering.Gender roles are explored and discussed somewhat, but the real meat of the novel is the study on pacifism I ve read other books that attempted to study the [...]

  • I took a while to review this book because it was hard to rate It s a solidly good book, but I get the feeling that it ended at an odd point.As usual in Le Guin s work, although the story takes place in a futuristic sci fi enviroment the focus is on people, their feelings, their beliefs, etc I love this about her writing, can t get tired of it really This story takes place on a jail planet where no one can leave, decades after the first colones prisioners arrived Due to spoilery motives, a movem [...]

  • Reading Ursula K Le Guin is like coming in from a very cold day to a snug house and eating a warm slice of cherry pie with a glass of milk The Eye of the Heron was written in 1978, but nearly four decades later it is still not only intensely relevant but eerily prophetic Le Guin s writing is wonderfully evocative she is able to build an entire alien world with its own ecology and society in less than one hundred and eighty pages To borrow a word from another reviewer she writes with clarity She [...]

  • Of the three Ursula K Le Guin books I read in quick succession, this was my least favorite I didn t particularly love any of them, although I did enjoy A Wizard of Earthsea It was much , shall we say, exciting than The Eye of the Heron.It s not that it s an awful book I don t quite know what went wrong, but whatever it was, it severely hampered my enjoyment I would say that I was bored with this book, although it had its moments I couldn t even tell you what bored me the concept was interesting, [...]

  • Eerie and magical There was something about the atmosphere throughout the entire book It s hard to put into words, but oh boy did I enjoy it.

  • Another insightful novella, packed with politics, human rights, gender and class discrimination, philosophy and very sensorial descriptions.Quite a good and quick read.

  • Inspiring view on nonviolent resistance for the sake of conscience, and the answer being to adjust what you may classify as successful.

  • Iznenadila me mala knji ica Lijepo je nagla eno to to vrijedi a to ne vrijedi u vremenu koje nam je dano ak na dijelovima Ursula esejisti ki pristupa temi pa je tu njezin osobni stav malo prekrio radnju romana ali odli no se uklopilo i ne smeta Ovo bi trebali pro itati svi oni koji misle da se bore za ne to ili protiv ne ega oni koji ne znaju udvagnuti kada se prestati boriti i to u initi kada vlast, birokracija, ili bilo koja acija podigne zid pred nama O te koj temi slobode, pisati tako jasno, [...]

  • This is one of the weaker if not the the weakest LeGuin book that I ve yet read.Not to see that it was bad, just that I found myself skimming than usual and just a little bored About halfway through I knew that the way the book ended would seal it as either terrible or passable, as it looked like it was heading in one of two ways, both of which I found to be a little too simplistic Thankfully, she didn t take either of those paths and so I wasn t quite disappointedjust a little bored.The world [...]

  • Le Guin has developed yet another peaceful society on another planet This one, though, originated on Earth many years into our future The Victoria Settlement was at first a penal colony, but about 50 years later The People of the Peace were sent Obviously, there s a lot of conflict between the two groups The latest confrontation has arisen because the Peace People would like to start another settlement The criminal descendants don t want to let them go because they do a lot of the menial labor a [...]

  • Creo que ten a muchas expectativas con Le Guin Cuando leo ciencia ficci n espero ciencia ficci n , espero una historia que me lleve a otras dimensiones, a cosas que no me habr a imaginado antes, a cosas que desaf en mis conocimientos de la ciencia en general Comprendo que existen muchos autores que pretenden exponer sus ideales morales, espirituales, pol ticos, y dem s, por medio de la literatura de fantas a estar a muy bien que adem s de esos ideales le agregara algo m s de ciencia Asimov no tu [...]

  • All novels are political in some sense as Orwell said, all art is propaganda The second half of that statement is that not all propaganda is art , and that s the danger for any novelist wishing to write an explicitly political novel All too often, what you end up with is a rather obvious allegory, in which the good guys are entirely good and inevitably correct and the bad guys completely evil and always wrong This trick is difficult enough to pull off in an epic fantasy setting where readers hav [...]

  • I adore Ursula Le Guin, and I was excited to discover this book I d never heard of before There was a lot to love about it as far as complicated characters, interesting society and world building, and the gorgeous, thoughtful writing I expect from Le Guin BUT, it felt like practice for The Dispossessed, which to my mind, is a FAR superior novel just for the ideas she toys with in Eye of the Heron but brings to fruition in The Dispossessed Her thoughts about the complexity of anarchism and pacifi [...]

  • When vowing to read fiction, why not begin with the woman Margaret Atwood described as One of the literary greats of the 20th century I had not read Le Guin before, and I have been missing out This piece is quite short and seemingly simple, but it is masterful and impactful What I loved best was how she made clear the divide between the City Bosses and the Shantih Towners was not solely one of power, or of views of gender, or of wealth, or of a relationship with the land, but as a deep cultural [...]

  • Ursula Le Guin has a beautiful way of taking the world we live in and twisting it so that you get a totally different view of it from a totally different planet Although this book was not my favorite of her s, it is still a beautiful story of war and peace and the bigotry that divides people This is the story of Lev who lives with the People of Peace They want only to be free of the City people who use them as their own personal servants Lev is only willing to obtain their release through peace [...]

  • The Eye of the Heron is the most overtly preachy Le Guin book that I ve read thus far The themic matter is ham fisted and the world building and characters both suffer in deference to the book s need to deliver a particular message, or maybe just to dwell on it That seems apt as the story doesn t really seem to move in the way that other Le Guin works from the same era do, but rather to huddle down into the dirt and ruminate Certainly not a waste of time The Eye of the Heron is still awash with [...]

  • It reads like a rough draft, or a vehicle for an ideology, rather than an exploration Even the most relatable characters feel hastily sketched.Most disappointing is that Le Guin opens and closes the book with some lovely, organic world building that s absent in the rest of the book, where exposition about Victoria s history is introduced with all the dryness of a high school history reader.I d love to read the novel this could have been if the setting was better developed.

  • Ajatuksia her tt v pieni kirja, joka ilmiselv sti nostaa esiin kommunikaatio ongelmia kulttuurien v lill Sen lis ksi se pohtii mit vaihtoehtoja l ytyy konfliktien ratkaisemiseksi.Ideoiden ja avointen kysymysten j tt minen avoimiksi, ilman ruusunpunaisia ratkaisuja nostavat kirjan arvoa Ajatusten kirja.

  • This was a lovely little story Two groups of people sent from Earth on a one way trip to another planet have made a life on this new planet The characters are made real through their struggles The search for freedom continues even here.

  • Not exactly a heron, because we re not exactly on Earth Issues of power and identity play out yet again in a small community on a big, empty planet A Le Guin work I hadn t encountered before, copyright 1978, Heron reflects contemporary concerns in feminism.
