The Tombs of Atuan (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 2)

The Tombs of Atuan (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 2) - Ursula K. Le Guin In reality 4.5 stars.

I really enjoyed this installment in the Earthsea Cycle. The beautifully drawn characters and palpable atmosphere were a delight. I just wish there was more of it. At 146 pages this is more of a long novella than a novel.

This is fantasy for the teen/pre-teen audience and so lacks some of the breadth I hoped for and though unfair that's the reason for the 4 star rating. I wish this was written on a grander scale and for the adult audience - it would have been amazing.
