The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin

Shevek, a brilliant physicist, decides to take action. He will seek answers, question the unquestionable, and attempt to tear down the walls of hatred that have isolated his planet of anarchists from the rest of the civilized universe. To do this dangerous task will mean giving up his family and possibly his life—Shevek must make the unprecedented journey to the utopian mother planet, Urras, to challenge the complex structures of life and living, and ignite the fires of change.

The Dispossessed (Hainish Cycle #6)The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I don’t know, it was ok. Loved the premise. I kept feeling like it was missing something though and very drawn out at the same time. I enjoyed the direction it was going but it never seemed to quite get there.

There was a lot of time spend on the descriptions without really going anywhere or in the way I hoped the plot would have moved for this type of genre.

I’d like to try reading another book by this author and I’m realizing as I write this review, that this is #6, which perhaps explains my feelings, if this is the case, I wouldn’t recommend it as a stand alone and next time I’ll start with #1 and I’ll be sure to update this review when I do.
