Le Guin is a wonderful author with beautiful words. I remember reading something of her's when I was in the 5th grade, sadly I had forgotten about it. Then it was recently brought to light by Bts, a Korean boy band that I am very fond of. I then realized that the author of this was that same author that I had loved. The plot of this,or lack thereof, is gorgeously real. The way I took it is that many people would rather have happiness for themselves than to save someone else's happiness.
I’ve started reading because, of the bts spring day MV to understand by reading the details and stuff I am really into it and going to get it hopefully JK!
I’m speechless. Few pieces of literature have painted a picture that vivid in my mind. It’s a fantastic story even though it’s so short. I think everyone should read this
