The Tombs of Atuan


I read A Wizard of Earthsea a few years ago. I remember nothing of it. Nothing at all. It is a blank. I read about it, that its hero is an apprentice wizard named Sparrowhawk, mage name Ged.

Now I read The Tombs of Atuan, the sequel to Wizard. Sparrowhawk, Ged, shows up about halfway through and the pace picks up. It was such slow going before that that I had to renew my library book. Then I finished it in two days.

I have the third book in the trilogy, The Farthest Shore, on my library to-read list. And I just might reread A Wizard of Earthsea.
