Just finished Ursula Le Guin's City of Illusions. She's one of my all-time favorite authors -- for language, for plot, for character, for thought-provoking content, for books that take that extra step from good to great -- and I had never heard of this book till I stumbled across it at The Phoenix last week. Yowza! Most excellent, with many twisty turny bits and an ethical component, which last is something I find myself looking for more and more in books. Not religious (that's something I definitely DO NOT look for), but ethical: people struggling to do the right thing, trying to make the right call in difficult situations, working out what their moral code is, what it demands of them. Ab honesto virum bonum nihil deterret, that sort of thing. Also -- bonus! -- turned out to be post-apocalypse. I suspected, but the Prince of Kansas clinched it. Two thumbs up :)
