As with the previous two books, the story is more about decisions, ethics, and philosophy than it is about power, tactics, and events, and the key to the struggle lies in the characters confronting and understanding the balances and costs of the world rather than simply overpowering some obstacle. My favorite portion of The Farthest Shore is when Arren searches for Ged's critique and approval of his actions and realizes that Ged is not going to provide it but instead simply trusts him.

It was thought provoking, touching on a search for meaning in life, and how you can get caught up chasing a worthless dream, and how we convince ourselves of the lies we tell.

Six other books including A Wizard of Earthsea, which was published in the yearfollowed the short story. Arha had spent several years of her childhood in solitude and underground, in the Labyrinth and the under tomb. It is true for a long time that faith in an afterlife has made many Christians into people who do not believe in the goodness of this one. So it is to the archmage, last of the Dragonlords who alone speaks with them in the tongue of the ancients, that the dragons too turn for help.

Not knowing their foe or their chance of success they sail into a great unknown. But he just vanished. Arren was abducted one night and was forced onto a boat and chained with other prisoners to be sold off as slaves. The book begins as Tenar is taken from her family at a tender age of five, and handed over to the dark ones at age 6.

Magic is losing its power; songs are being forgotten; people and animals are sickening or going mad. Le Guin creates a fascinating triptych of Ged throughout these three novels. But it is the final book that most tellingly seeks to express problems that Le Guin identifies with religion. Viewed within the continuum of the Earthsea series, however, The Farthest Shore is more remarkable.

He can feel his life and energy ebbing from him and they both drift away on Lookfar out into the open ocean.

The radio drama was adapted by Judith Adams, directed by Sasha Yevtushenko and featured original music composed by Jon Nicholls. I suspect The Farthest Shore would stand alone, but probably works better in the context of reading the other two first.
