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.

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.

    I found the narrator hard to follow , not clear enough enunciation . I don’t have perfect hearing and struggled , I found it tiring to listen . Otherwise it’s a fantastic classic

    I found this book to be extremely well written and the Narrator was excellent. A very thoughtful read. I came away with more understanding of the Live one has for friends. Whatever gender or non gender they are. A great read!

  • Jeffrey M.

  • Paige B.

    great book!

  • Jeannie B.

    Can't believe I didn't come across this incredible, thought-provoking classic earlier. I am all the time telling friends and family about different elements of the characters, premise, writing, or story. There is *so much* in this novel. Finished it and immediately listened through again.

  • Rauf S.

    Excellent, some of the best world building in sci-fi

  • Elizabeth H.

    The preview is of the intro. The narrator for the intro was quite different from the narrator for the rest of the novel. Imagine my shock (after I buy it) when it changes from a soothing female voice to a a male voice I don’t quite like. What is the purpose of the preview if not to let us hear the voice.... ?

  • Andrea H

    The narrator had an accent and slurred voice.
