Are the books independent enough to read them in that order?

Or do you think it would spoil the experience if I continued?

I'm really intrigued by the approach.

Yeah, I read The Left Hand of Darkness first and it's events are disjoint enough from The Dispossessed that both can stand on their own.

Although now I really need to get the rest of the Hainish Cycle books...

Supposedly, the book's events spark things that happen in the rest of the series.
