The Left Hand of Darkness


This was the first science fiction novel I read. Once I got used to the writing and got into the story I really enjoyed it. This is certainly a book I think can be read more than once as there is so much packed into it. The story itself is good but it is hard work trying to remember everything that is going on, understandable as a whole world has been created, part of the universe as it stands but bigger.

The names used are different to anything I have read before but work and are fun to try and follow and remember.

I have now also read the Dispossessed and plan to read more of the novels that are related to these.
