9780152062422: Voices (Annals of the Western Shore)

Ansul was once a peaceful town filled with libraries, schools, and temples. But that was long ago, and the conquerors of this coastal city consider reading and writing to be acts punishable by death. And they believe the Oracle House, where the last few undestroyed books are hidden, is seething with demons. But to seventeen-year-old Memer, the house is the only place where she feels truly safe. Then an Uplands poet named Orrec and his wife, Gry, arrive, and everything in Memer's life begins to change. Will she and the people of Ansul at last be brave enough to rebel against their oppressors?" ""Includes an interview with the author and a teaser to the third book in the series, "Powers.""

Product Description:

[ Voices (Annals of the Western Shore) By Le Guin, Ursula K ( Author ) Paperback 2008 ]

Review:

* (starred review) "While her prose is simple and unadorned, Le Guin's superior narrative voice and storytelling power make even small moments ring with truth, and often with beauty." --"School Library Journal" (August 2006

* (starred review) "Le Guin's latest pairs organically with its companion novel "Gifts," echoing themes of revenge, family legacies, personal morality, and a humanistic magic redolent more of earthly mysteries than flashy sorcery... The relevance of the slowly festering conflict between occupying and occupied cultures cannot be missed, and her understated writing flows as unstintingly as ever." --"Booklist "(August 2006)

[star] "Le Guin's superior narrative voice and storytelling power make even small moments ring with truth, and often with beauty."--School Library Journal (starred)
