One of the great fantasy classics. Ged goes to the island of wisards to apprentice himself. The school is very other-worldly. Ged meets very strange and powerful wizards and finds he must undergo a journey to death itself. The book has a terrific mystical feel and is very enthralling.

I found this a good fantasy beginning book but I really don't see what all the hype is about. It is the story of a young wizard coming of age. The characters and landscape are not fluffed out enough to get a good feel for them. Since this is a series I hope that the descriptions solidify in the next books.
