Publisher's Summary

Legendary fantasy author and Newbery Award winner Ursula K. Le Guin transports listeners to exotic, fantastic worlds. Voices stars the people of Ansul, a town of scholars and traders conquered by the marauding Alds 17 years ago. When poet Orrec arrives in town, however, the people begin to garner the courage to rebel against their overlords.

A bit disapointed

Though as always there are qualitys in Le Guins work, this was a bit disapointing. It might be that Martinez, whom I believe has a god reading voice, overdoes the sweet, mystic tone in her voice and therefore makes this story more a romance than it actually is.

good book spoiled by awful reading....

This may be a "young adult" novel, but the reader reads it with the voice that adults use to imitate a 6 year old when reading to 6 year olds. The narrator of this novel is supposed to be 26 years old; a strong person with a lot of suffering in her background. The reader gives her a kind of breathless, mincing, naivete, with inappropriate emphases on every third word, irritating beyond belief. I'm not going to be able to finish listening. It only gets stars at all because of Le Guin.
