    "A Wizard of Earthsea may seem like a Harry Potter rip off but it's really not. It is a fiction for teens that takes place in an academy but that's where the Harry Potter comparisons end."

    "I probably wouldn't call this a traditional book, but it certainly captured the attention of my 8th graders and I got some good feedback from them. I hesitated a bit before assigning it to them because the curriculum I teach doesn't have much place for fantasy literature (I'm in a very conservative school district), but overall I have no regrets."

    "My nephew was coming over the weekend so I wanted to plan something fun for him to do. I know he loves books, especially those about wizards and magic. I decided to search for the best books with wizards, witches, sorcerers, and mages so I could surprise him with something to read. I eventually found "A Wizard of Earthsea(The Earthsea Cycle)" and was extremely impressed. Both my nephew and I loved everything about it. The story and the characters were both top notch. "

    " Starting from the premise of "what were Gandalf and Merlin like as young men?", Le Guin traces out the early career of Ged/Sparrowhawk, a powerful mage in a deeply historied archipelago where knowing the true names of things gives you power over them. A prideful boast unleashes a terrible shadow into the world, and Ged has to go on a journey of self-discovery and mastery to restore the equilibrium. "

    "This novel is an ok fantasy novel. Some people try to compare it to Harry Potter, but in my opinion it is nothing like Harry Potter. Some people also compare it to Lord of the Rings. I can see why, it has some darkness, but it to me it seemed a bit gloomy. Not what I was expecting, but it was an ok novel."

    "A Wizard of Earthsea is a fantasy book by Ursula Le Guin. It is available from Amazon for $14.65 for the hardcover edition. The story centers on Ged, the greatest sorcerer of Earthsea. His hunger for power as a child has cast a shadow over the world. This fits the topic nicely."
