Book Review: The Telling by Ursula K. LeGuin

Classic 5+/5

The new government of Aka uniquely allows Sutty, an observer from Earth, beyond the planet’s economically-driven cultural repressions to learn about the Indigenous peoples’ culture, but is her freedom to do this real or an illusion? The structures of plot work here to drive story, but that’s not why you would read this book: it’s haunting writing and philosophical musings were what captivated me.
