    1. 3.5 stars. This 1966 SF novel is part of the impressive two-volume set Ursula K. Le Guin: The Hainish Novels and Stories, just published on Sept. 5, 2017, which a publicist was kind enough to send me. I'm gradually working my way through that collection, which is going to take a good long while. But here's my review for the first novel in the collection, which is Le Guin's first published novel. Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature:In her debut novel Rocannon’s World (1966), Ursula [...]


    2. Ekumen scientist Rocannon is interrupted in his mission on a primitive world by an attack from the League's enemies. All of a sudden he finds himself fighting with and leading the natives in the struggle, and grows into a revered legend.Rocannon's World is the first published novel of Ursula K. Le Guin, and the first instalment in the so-called Hainish cycle. It is unfortunately also definitely the weakest book I've read by her, but that hardly means that it was disappointing. Only that it didn' [...]


    3. I've been teaching the beginning of Rocannon's World for many years now. I found it as the short story Semley's Necklace in a Sci-Fi anthology, and I always meant to track down its source, but whenever I remembered to look for it at used book stores it was never there. I recently discovered it had been reprinted, so I finally scored a copy and gave it a much belated read.It started as I expected (odd that, isn't it?), and the early moments of Rocannon's time on the world that would be named for [...]


    4. Rocannon’s World was Ursula K. Le Guin’s first published novel, by Ace Publishing in 1966. This novel also introduced Le Guin’s brilliant Hainish Cycle, where she describes the universe as having been settled and re-discovered by a race founded on Hain (not Earth, or Terra) as she identified our planet. Le Guin also introduced her instant communicator, the ansible, that has been used in other author’s books and has proven a uniquely necessary concept in the science fiction genre. This is [...]


    5. "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."-Arthur C. Clarke's Third Law of Scientific PredictionIt is easy to point to certain works and state 'this is sci fi' or 'this is fantasy', but this has more to do with traditions and habits than with strict definitions. Fantastical works ostensibly look the the past, science fiction to the future, but both operate around grand myths, social meanings, and items of inexplicable power. Often, these items act as tangible moral f [...]


    6. Zvučala je zanimljive no što je bila . Šteta , odlično je krenula sa prologom i pričom o izgubljenoj ogrlici . Zatim je , nažalost , propala u dosadi .Veliki plus : naslućuje se predivan stil pisanja . Ipak je ovo njena prva knjiga pa na nekim mjestima koči .Minus ( za ovo izdanje ): očajan prijevod . Prolog sam pročitao da nisam ni skužio o čemu se radilo .Siguran sam da je ovo jedna od najslabijih , ako ne i najslabija knjiga od Ursule . Očekujem mnogo bolje "nastavke" .


    7. Rocannon's World is too slow to be a sprint and too short to be a marathon, and its scenery and people are too varied to be tied to one locale.Rocannon's World is a power walk through Balboa Park on a spring morning, daylight breaking over the groves of eucalyptus and palm. It's a jog along Mission Beach at dusk in the summer, the sun's evening light turning the clouds far out over the Pacific every shade of pink, red, and orange. The societies in Rocannon's World are diverse and separate, yet l [...]


    8. Llevaba toda la vida preparándome para leer a Ursula K. Le Guin y no siquiera lo sabía. Y espero que este cuento sea la carta de presentación de lo que me espera al leer el resto de su obra.Y no es tanto por la historia de esta novela si no por todas las implicaciones que hay detrás. Una construcción de mundo apenas inexistente que ha creado un universo en cuatro pinceladas. Si esto no es genialidad no sé qué puede ser. La próxima vez que alguien me diga que la mejor descripción de fusi [...]


    9. Originally posted at FanLit. fantasyliterature/reviRocannon’s World, published in 1966, is Ursula Le Guin’s debut novel and the first in her HAINISH CYCLE. The story describes how Rocannon, an ethnographer, became stranded on the planet he was charting when a spaceship from Faraday, a rogue planet that is an enemy to the League of All Worlds, blew up his spaceship and the rest of his crew. Rocannon thinks he’s trapped forever until he sees a helicopter and realizes that Faraday must have a [...]


    10. Ceridwen, I'm so sorry, but I did pretty much hate this. I didn't want to -- I've always heard great things and meant to read Ursula Le Guin (she went to my high school!), but what I'd forgotten to factor in was that I just don't "get" fantasy/sci fi at all.I mean, actually I don't understand why that is really. Perhaps there is something essential that is dead and withered inside me and that is why I can't read a word like "windsteed" without snorting and rolling my eyes. I mean, what is it abo [...]


    11. One of the nice things about growing older is that one can rediscover authors and works that meant a lot to myself long ago, and see how things have changed over the years. Ursula K. Le Guin was one of my favorite writers of what I call "recreational literature." Rocannon's World was her very first novel, published in 1966, the year I came to live in Southern California. What I have always like about Le Guin, is everything that her middle initial implies: It was Kroeber, after her father, Alfred [...]


    12. Po raz kolejny przekonałam się, że Le Guin chyba lepiej wychodzą opowieści fantasy niż sci-fi. Świat Rocannona bardzo mi się podobał na tej samej zasadzie co "Władca Pierścieni". Chodzi o te legendy ukryte w mroku dziejów, legendy, które okazują się prawdziwe. Bardzo mi szkoda tych bohaterów i przez całą historię przebija nieskończony smutek, ale to tylko dodaje smaczku całej opowieści.Zobaczymy co będzie dalej, bo "Lewą rękę ciemności" czytałam bardzo dawno temu, chy [...]


    13. I was a touch put off by the ponderous, ceremonial style of much of the prologue. My culturally learned nostalgia for heroic-feudal societies is a part of my psyche I've disciplined somewhat with critical consciousness, and I had to sort of soothe myself into this with the assurance that Le Guin wouldn't indulge in some decidedly Tolkiensque world building without an eye on the real injustices such writing often glorifies or naively capitalises on. Sure enough, a humanly familiar narrator takes [...]


    14. Rocannon, anthropologist and wanderer, sets out on a quest of revenge and justice. Brilliant storytelling. The alien world is alive and believable. I can see the far future of humanity following the same paths as Rocannon.



    15. This is Ursula K Le Guin's debut science fiction novel. The first book of hers that I read was the great Left Hand of Darkness, the fourth in the Hainish cycle of which Rocannon's World is the first. The Hainish cycle isn't a series, per se, and so it really doesn't seem to matter the order in which they are read. Rocannon's World is science fiction. It has interstellar travel and FTL ships and laser weapons; but it is also high fantasy, with lords and vassals, swords and castles, legends and gr [...]


    16. W czytaniu Ursuli Le Guin jest coś z melancholii, że wszystko, o czym pisze, już się wydarzyło: czytelnik – tak jak i część jej bohaterów – staje zatem w roli obserwatora. Nic nie da się zmienić, los już się wypełnił, stoimy w prześwicie historii, która już po części została opisana, skatalogowana i zmityzowana. Nie ma nad czym płakać – można się tylko przyglądać.pierogipruskie/20


    17. Siempre es un buen plan para todo amante de la Fantasía y la Ciencia Ficción leer la primera novela de una de las maestras del género en el último siglo.En este cuento podemos ver ya los pilares en lo que se basarían los puntos fuertes de Le Guin: la atmósfera, el lenguaje, la construcción de las sociedadesEl argumento es el típico del viaje del héroe y su conversión, con un trasfondo que deja ver que el universo que crea Le Guin es mucho mayor.


    18. Le Guin certainly liked to write journeys. I suppose, the journey is really the reward not in Rocannon's case, though. This story is set on a planet (unnamed but referred to as Fomalhaut II) that has several races and has reached a Middle Ages sort of existence, whichin the reader finds feudal systems, Bronze age weaponry, and the odd flying horse/cat creature here and there. Meanwhile, in space around this unassuming planet, a war rages between the interstellar Ekumen society and a planet call [...]


    19. This is the first book in Ursula K. Le Guin's Hainish Cycle, a series of 10 books that spans different worlds in the context of interplanetary ethnologists roaming about the galaxy, studying planets and their cultures, and potentially incorporating them into the League of All Worlds. I think it is a brilliant premise for a series, but it is most extraordinary for Le Guin's talent at creating entire worlds in each of her books, complete with different races/species, cultures, rituals, and meaning [...]


    20. Wow. That is an awful, awful cover. It just screams, "I'm a pulp fantasy cover from the '60s! Ignore me if you want people to think you're normal!" If ever there was a time not to judge a book by its cover, now is that time. Rocannon's World is Ursula K. Le Guin's first novel, and it shows. Nonetheless, it's not as cringe-worthy as this paperback reprint's cover makes it seem.Anyone familiar with Le Guin's work will end up being disappointed, I suspect, not because Rocannon's World is bad but be [...]


    21. I listened to this one as an audiobook. The narrator did an excellent job (although the Fiia's voices were a bit over the top) so I do not think that affected my perception of it negatively. Even so, I did not find the book engaging. Allowing for its age, it still fails to deliver on many levels. The main plotline is not very interesting and is resolved very lazily, but since the main meat of the book consists of demonstrating the culture of the different species living on Fomalhaut II it could [...]


    22. A lovely 2.5 star story, but I would recommend that if you are new to LeGuin that you read some of her more famous and later stories first to determine if she (as an author) is right for you. Some aspects midway through the story were a bit rough and a few of the transitions were as well but by the end you could definitely hear LeGuin's voice in the prose. She has a distinct skill with imagery that you can't help but appreciate. Another thing, reading this book really points to the pompous verbo [...]



    23. There's a lot in this short novel. It's Le Guin's first, and you can tell it's an early book because of a tiny bit of clunkiness, a few too-convenient coincidences, and some SF/F elements that don't quite follow the rules (which she points out herself in the introduction that's included at the end of the Library of America volume I read it in). But you can also see her genius. The writing is beautiful, and makes you want to slow down while reading. The aliens are interesting; there are a bunch o [...]


    24. Rocannon's World is a fantastic tale part of the Hainish Cycle and if read in chronological order then this novel comes in third of all the Hainish tales, which takes place in c.2684 AD, but if read by publication date then this one is the first one of the lot; first published in 1966 as an Ace Double. It is a great mixture of fantasy and science fiction; I am not sure if there is a genre that has a name for the combination of both, but if there isn't then I really think there should be I have o [...]


    25. An interesting mix of hard sf and fantasy, wherein a geological surveyor for the League of Worlds is stranded on a planet whose development is roughly Bronze Age. He must use primitive means to journey to the base of the enemies who are pretty much using this planet as a staging area to attack the league, with little care for the aborigines.The blend of part mythical quest and part high-tech space opera, serves to elucidate the familiar theme of an archaeologist “going native” but not in ord [...]




    26. Rocannon's World was Ursula K. LeGuin's first published novel and is the first of her novels I have read. I've always thought that if I read Le Guin I would read The Left Hand of Darkness, since it was the big prize winner and the one everyone read back in the 1970's, during the years after it first appeared and Le Guin's reputation was on the rise. But I was not reading SF at that time, so I had only minimal interest, and, even worse, the novel always came with the dreaded recommendation, "No, [...]
