After a relatively long sci-fi diversion, I thought it was time for some good old fantasy again and started reading A Wizard of Earthsea, and since it's rather short, I'm almost through. Very different from the more modern works I'm familiar with, mostly due to the quaint language structures and there being little dialogue. At times I was slightly reminded of H.P. Lovecraft's stories.

It feels simple and at the same time intriguingly archaic. I like it and am already looking forward to the other Earthsea entries.

"Mystery is important. To know everything, to know the whole truth, is dull. There is no magic in that. Magic is not knowing, magic is wondering about what and how and where." ~ Cortez, from The Longest Journey
