Finished it within two weeks and have mostly forgotten the plot, so we'll go with an eh. I will agree with veen that it could have been improved by being a shorter story.

What stuck out for me is that it is hailed as being feminist (LeGuin might not consider it as such) but where men and women are supposed to be equal in Annaresti society there are a few points where they are shown not to be in the story. (Please don't ask for specifics, they have fled my brain, and I borrowed the book in digital format.)
