I was rather disappointed by this book, to be honest. I suppose I enjoyed reading the descriptions of Anarres' somewhat-anarchist society, but I found the writing style rather uninteresting and the plot rather slow. I might entirely have missed what Le Guin was getting at with this book, but I don't really see the point of going on and on about some theory of physics when she could have produced a richer and deeper discussion of the tensions within Anarres and between it and other societies... I think this book could have been much better had its basis been more social commentary than science--not to say that this wasn't a major facet of The Dispossessed, but perhaps it should have been more so (eg, why did the discussion on revolution in Urras end so abruptly after the repressive actions of the police/military? I feel that could [and, truthfully, should] have been expanded upon much more). In any case, though, I'm not really into science fiction, so perhaps that biases my read on the book and its content.
