by | Read by George Guidall

Science Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1969

George Guidall narrates this classic novel with gravity and emotion. He smoothly shifts his voice between that of the outsider Genly Ai, a black man with a masculine voice who is acting as an ambassador on the distant planet Gethen, and the more androgynous voices of the gender-shifting humanoid aliens. The people of Gethen challenge Genly’s—and the listener’s—notions of masculinity and femininity. The story is full of political intrigue and captivating descriptions of the chilling landscape. Guidall will transport listeners to the distant snowy reaches of “Winter,” where Genly and the soft-spoken and determined Estraven struggle to cross glaciers and fight to establish Gethen’s place in the community between worlds. Le Guin won the Hugo and the Nebula Awards for this tale, and it remains a genre-defining feminist work. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
