The Dispossessed--Ursula K LeGuin reviewed
Many like Left Hand of Darkness better. As with much of the fiction from that time, I found it too heavily laden with agenda to be a worthy work. It's a shame because the central notion is so compelling, but that's how I viewed/view it. The Dispossessed on the other hand while still agenda-laden, stands out from the concerns of the agenda and manifests as a complete and interesting novel.
