Continuing to enjoy muchly. Lots of great observations about how societies work, but not in a heavy-handed way, fits nicely in to the narrative. I like the quote from Le Guin, that she "eliminated gender, to find out what was left".

Enjoying this muchly so far. There's something melliflous about the way Le Guin writes.

It feels similar to The Dispossessed so far in that it's about a stranger in a strange land. The strange land seems to be one involving monarchy. With another interesting characteristic being the absence of gender.
