I finished the third Earthsea book this morning – blooming brilliant. Lots of high points including the dragon Orm Embar giving his life to help Ged and Arren defeat Cob, and the flight home on Kalessin. But, it’s the comments about equilibrium and consequences of actions that affect my reading the most. Just “Tehannu” left now from the “Quartet”. I’ve never read any Neil Gaiman and I saw “American Gods” on offer today. I hope it’s up to the hype (and I have a feeling it is)… though I wish I was beginning my Neil Gaiman journey with “The Ocean at the end of the Lane” or “The Graveyard Book”.
