    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIDear Ursula Le Guin You've given me many gifts over the years and I cherish them all so it is fitting that your most recent gift is a book of the same name I know it is not the favourite of many of my friends who love your work too and I don't know if I can even call it a favourite but I accepted Gifts from you at the perfect time much as I've accepted your other works When all my fantasy worlds were filled with too obvious expressions of god vs evil and I was struggling with the bin

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIAfter reading several books by Ursula K Le Guin and a little about her and her writing I think that she may not be capable of writing a bad story perhaps not capable of writing a bad sentence Gifts her 1999 novel has tone and imagery reminiscent of Anne McCaffery or Robert Silverberg The gifts she described powerful spell like traits associated with a family or lineage call to mind the knacks Orson Scott Card invents in his Alvin Maker series – though those powers seem to appear sporadically and without trend like mutations – the gifts from this Western Shores series are passed from father to son and mother to daughter and may be distinctly associated with the family in uestion This is an excellent story and a very Good Read

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIGifts is a hard sell as a teen fantasy novel Why not market it in the same vein as A Wizard of Earthsea I wonder? As all Le Guin's books Gifts is deeply philosophical and introspective It is preoccupied with exploring what it means for a person to have a dangerous potentially lethal ability To give some frame of reference think Graceling with Katsa's constant fretting about her killing Grace minus action angsty teen romance and pseudo feminist propaganda plus depth and better knowledge of human nature and you will get GiftsThe story is set in Uplands an isolated place where several farming families that possess various gifts feud and fight for dominance These gifts range from fairly innocuous calling animals to horrifying abilities to twist limbs or to put a s

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIWith the recent publication of the third volume of the Annals of the Western Shore I decided to go back to the start and re read the first two and follow it up with the latestGifts is the first book It is narrated by Orrec Caspro son of his clan's leader The clans of the uplands have uncanny powers Gifts at least if the family blood runs true but Orrec's mother is not of the clan or even of the Uplands where the clans lead their isolated impoverished existence feuding and farming Orrec's Gift has gone awry apparently uncontrollable and it is the Gift of Unmaking destructive deadly and a threat to the neighbouring clans Orrec goes blindfolded to protect those arou

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBII am maybe a bit disappointed but that is of my fault than Ursula'sSince it's fantasy coming of age story I expected something along the line of Wizard of Earthsea and Gifts isn't that nor is it trying to beThere isn't much of a plot line or world building in this book instead it's focus is on Orrec's growing up and on politics and struggles within small community It's not flashy or philosophical book but it's small piece of world is well fleshed outIt's warm unpretentious and very satisfying bookfar from Usrula's best but still above most other similar themed books

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIGifts is a uiet story in the way that Ursula Le Guin can do really well those moments of silence introspection contemplation It isn’t my favourite of her books but I love the things she explores here the longing of parents to see their children succeed; love within families; grieving and loss; trying to choose the lesser evil Orrec’s voluntary blindness and the way it affects the world around him his fears and his wa

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIWonderful Beautiful UKL's use of the English language is without eual or parallel Not a word wasted Not an idea wasted Simple efficient and yet touching and thoughtful I don't know how she does itHow fortunate that I read Gifts during the Christmas season when we in western culture are too often focused on the wrong gifts in our lives Gifts is not a book about Christmas or the Christmas season but the parallels are unmistakable Of course the other themes are all there a parent's expectations worlds colliding the struggle through our ignorance of the adult world as we grow up but this book definately has something to say about the Christmas sea

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIWitch clans being passive aggressive and occasionally active aggressive at one another It's a mellow low stakes story about a single life or two I liked it fine when I read it but I suspect it was a little unremarkable in the end since I can't seem to be able to find many things to talk about it after the fact

    eBook Ursula K Le Guin à Gifts Epub ç à gifts free, Gifts MOBIWhat was I supposed to think when I picked this up? I hardly ever actually look inside the book and read the first page or first chapter It's always the cover and blurb on the back of the book that makes me want to read itMaybe I should start reading the first page or chapter from now on?It's written by Orrec's point of view and when I say written I pretty much mean exa
