Publisher Comments:

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. Embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement in the annals of intellectual science fiction.

Synopsis:

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards for "Best Science Fiction Novel of the Year", this famous novel tells the story of a lone human emissary to Winter, an alien world whose inhabitants can change their gender. "An instant classic".--"Minneapolis Star-Tribune".

Emily Lehman, November 11, 2008 (view all comments by Emily Lehman)
I was told this book was a classic and that I had to read it, so I wasn't expecting to enjoy it that much. But I couldn't put it down. The story is touching and compelling, and most of all human. Just a really beautiful book.
