Great but long

This is a great sci-fi book by some people's definition. It offers real problems set in a scientifically different society, they only issue I have with Le Guin's writing is that they usually lack exciting action driven plots. I don't need the entire book to be like that but at least one chapter.

Still a must for any serious sci-fi reader.

"LeGuin pulls no punches in this novel about an anarchist-feminist society that broke away from an oppressive, consumer-driven world to live on its barren moon. Out of this vivid portrait of two flawed societies, and one brilliant physicist, comes a story about how no culture can completely erase injustice."
