Ursula le Guin's 'Voices' was a deep story about how the passion of a defeated people was aroused by the power of words and forgotten tales. I would highly recommend reading it - this was one book that I could not put down. I especially love how it made me think about the lessons and themes behind the story as I read. When the storyteller Orrec Caspro spoke to the people of Ansul, inspiring them to rise up against their enemies, it was like I was there with them, listening. It literally sent chills down my spine. This book was truly amazing.
