The characters fell a little flat for me, but it`s an amazing book and a beautiful depiction of spellcasting and wizardry. A must for people who enjoy the genre. The lack of relevant female characters is always a little nuisance, but still a great book.

The story is good, not terribly deep, but this was written for younger readers.
Upon a second reading, it is still a strong and vibrant story, though I became a bit bored with the repeated hopping from one port town to the next and the multiple close calls. I could certainly relate to her descriptions of walking to exhaustion, and pushing oneself to the limits of one's endurance!
There was a plot hole which I felt was not sufficiently explained and upon re-reading still feel that it is a bit wobbly, but a minor kvetch for a marvellous book. I thought it very clever of her to introduce the "stubs", the unresolved questions from which other books will take their start, woven into the narrative and not just plugged in at the end.
I know it's a YA book, but don't let that description deter you. It's beautiful and enduring, a work of art.
For one, when Le Guin wrote the book, that wasn't an archetype. Young adult fantasy didn't really exist then.
Also, the book doesn't feature war. Le Guin thinks that stories of wars between good versus evil are over-told and that there are more important stories to tell. The story is about Ged, the protagonist, coming of age, realizing his shortcomings, and overcoming and accepting his personal demons. The conflicts are no less epic and the victories no less sweet for the lack of war.
One of the reviews that I read before reading "A Wizard of Earthsea" included the line, "A 1968 book with a non-white hero! LOVE." Being a white person, I might not have even noticed that fact if I hadn't read the review, but it was both true and heartening.
The writing style was different than I'm used to. It had an old-fashioned fantastical lyrical storybook feel. It was interesting seeing a different style, but I think that, while I appreciated the lyricalness, I prefer less whimsical styles.
Overall, a very good exploration of humans and meaning.
Yes this was written as a children's book but I'm thinking Ursula did not give enough thought into children being able to comprehend a story that could have been much more than it was.
There is one brilliant thing she did with the characters that is very understated but also revolutionary given the social climate at the time it was written. None of the main or even the secondary characters are the stereotypical white male. They were of all other varied ethnicity. Score a little victory there.
