What the community says about The Birthday of the World and Other Stories
- "The writing in this book is impeccable. I was engaged throughout and the stories are quite good. I love reading books with great wording and language and this is definitely one of those books. It's like poetry in motion really; I couldn't put it down. The book is inspiring, thoughtful, and I found myself questioning things in my own life and how society is now. Each story is unique and interesting. "
- "Le Guin is an author who sticks to a genre but finds interesting ways to step outside the lines. With this collection of stories she takes you on a journey of human nature where the topic is generally men vs women where the women are the hierarchy and men are oppressed ranging from slaves to their only use being reproduction."
- "I love this book The Birthday of the World and Other Stories because it gives me good characters. I also like the short stories because I don't have to spend hours reading one story and with the different stories I was never bored. I also like the intriguing questions the book explores like : what if women outnumbered males? Great stories that kept me interested."
- "In my opinion, this book seems to be presented as if it speaks about the birthday of earth among other things, however the way it is presented does not give me a clear understanding if this is a fictional story or an actual documentation of earths birthday. "
