The Left Hand of Darkness (Ace Science Fiction) Review

  • Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards
  • A groundbreaking work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness tells the story of a lone human emissary to Winter, an alien world whose inhabitants can change their gender. His goal is to facilitate Winter’s inclusion in a growing intergalactic civilization. But to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own views and those of the completely dissimilar culture that he encounters.

Excellent book.. Even it encapsulates you from the foreword (Best one I have ever read from the author).. The world is really interesting. It will basically try to find how would be the world if everyone is a bit male and a bit female, and the outcome is quiet interesting. The story and the way it is presented is excellent too.. I would strongly recommend this book.By Ali Erdem Ertan

Read it too long ago to be able to give particulars. It is a classic. And, as with all classics, it is memorable, if not in the details, in our appreciation for the author’s gifts.By Barbara Burke
