Ursula K. Le Guin has won multiple prizes and accolades, from the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters to the Newbery Honor, Nebula, Hugo, World Fantasy, and PEN/Malamud awards. She has had her work collected over the years but never as a complete retrospective of her longer works, as represented in the wonderful The Found and the Lost.

Ursula La Guine delivers an absolute masterpiece!

The Found of the Lost is one of the most incisive anthology of sci-fi and fantasy that I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Le Guin is an absolute master! She expertly delves into into magic, slavery, gender, misogyny, patriarchy, theology, the nature and formation of family and the terrible fragility of life.

The stories flows through all of these topics in creative, lyrical and at times whimsical pros that are delivering in fantastic narrations. She does this all while building credible strong and clear futuristic sci-fi speculative fiction and imaginative fantastic alternate worlds.

This has to be one of the best narrations ever put together on audible. The production was outstanding.

very good

I loved the variety of stories and hearing about my dear friend ged once more. the only problem I found wasn't a book or story issue but is the listing of chapter numbers vs story names and titles. I LOVED the final story and a few between but it would be hard to go back to the beginning of them to re "read" it.

Excellent, except for one thing...

The works by Le Guin and the delivery by the two readers are as excellent as I expected.

However, the anthology contains no chapter headings. Indeed, you don’t even get a simple list of the works included. This makes it difficult to keep ones place.

So here, for reference, are the works included.

-Vaster Than Empires and More Slow
-Buffalo Gals, Won't You Come Out Tonight
-The Matter of Seggri
-Another Story or a Fisherman of the Inland Sea
-Forgiveness Day
-A Man of the People
-A Woman's Liberation
-Old Music and the Slave Women
-The Finder
-On the High Marsh
-Paradises Lost

The found and the lost

Excellent mix of Earthsea, Hain and other novellas. Good performances by both narrators: enjoyed this.

Difficult/frustrating to navigate audiobook

This is a wonderful book and is read beautifully. I would recommend it to anyone. But not this audiobook version.
This is a collection of many (I think 12+) novellas. With a collection this size, you should be able to skip one story and go to the next, or choose which story you want to read not necessarily in a linear order. But it is impossible to do this. The audiobook is divided by a hundred or more 'chapters' but not by novella and most books have quite a number of chapters. So you can't event work out which book you're up to from the chapter numbers. What is perhaps more annoying is that it is not always clear when one novella ends and another begins. One story runs into the next while you are listening. There is no pause and no indication one book has ended, except that the title of the next book is read out. But it is not always clear if this is a new book or just a new chapter in the old book (especially as some of these books share common universes). It is frustrating because it is otherwise such an amazing audiobook let down by the technology/ navigation.
