In some ways the elder Sparrowhawk reminds me old Kvoth, in the world of the brilliant author Patrick Rothfuss, but Sparrowhawk would never have spent three hours, much less three days, telling his story. I'm so glad Ursula LeGuin did!
I like having a version with all of the books in one printing.
As for the book itself the quality is great, the maps are all included and the print is readable which was my problem with the last Library of America book I read. Worth the price versus paying for each book separately and it is a series I strongly recommend to fantasy reading enthusiasts.
