The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K Le Guin

Well, OK, I read it. It's an interesting tale but I don't know what to think that it had to say. I suppose in 1969 it may have had something to say about gender roles, but to me today that doesn't mean a lot, it was a big "so what."

I think what I will take from it is the relationship between Genly Ai and Estraven and their trek across the ice.

  • Margaret Bumby - Been over 30 years since I read it, and yeah, it was kind of mind-opening about gender roles and assumptions back then. What impacted me the most, though, in a deep nightmarey way, is the way he (? I don't recall) reacted to being MOVED.
  • Bob Trembley - Same, read that a LONG time ago.
