I found "The Dispossessed" a bit preachy - same for a lot of her stories. The message drove the story far too much. If you want anarchist fiction, read B. Traven instead.

"The Left Hand of Darkness" was the book that most impressed me - very personal (it was written as a kind of tribute to her lesbian daughter) in an intense and completely unexpected way.
