Hugo Winner Book Review: The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin

Winner of the 1975 Hugo for best novel, this is a fascinating story about an unlikely hero and two planets with widely differing political systems. It fits into Le Guin's Hainish Cycle, like "The Left Hand of Darkness" a Hugo winner I previously reviewed.

Highly original and imaginative, It describes an anarchist utopian society that almost had me convinced that it could work.

Recommended reading, it is a standalone novel that doesn't require having ready any of the other novels in the series.
