Books I've read #
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. It's the fourth book in the Hainish Cycle, but I read most of them around 20 years ago. It was worth it to read it again. Highly recommended! One of the reasons I picked it up was The dangerous philosophy of Ursula Le Guin | Science Fiction with Damien Walter which I can recommend regardless if you're familiar with her or not.
