The Murry family, also appearing in A Wind in the Door and Many Waters, acts as a carrier of Madeleine L'Engle's unique message about human responsibility for the world. Themes of good versus evil, time and space travel, and the invincibility of the human spirit predominate. Even while she entertains, L'Engle kindles the intellect, inspiring young people to ask questions of the world, and learn by challenging. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The first L'Engle book I read was A Wrinkle In Time, and I loved that one.
Although this is, like I said, my favorite of the Time Quartet, it's safe to say it wouldn't be as good a book without the previous two.
Another technique displayed by L'Engle is the return of her characters, Meg Murry O'Keefe and Charles Wallace.
I will always love this series of books. A great read for the kids, to expand their minds and their imaginations, as well as for adults.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
I think Madeleine L'Engle reached into something very deep and very profound with this book.
Admittedly, I didn't read these books as much as I liked when I was young. Read more
My first ever oral book report was on A Swiftly Tilting Planet. I chose it because I had so much enjoyed the book. And, hey, it had a flying unicorn. Read morePublished 18 days ago by StrangePegs
I really enjoyed this book. I must admit it started out a bit rocky for me. Meg and Charles Wallace are older now. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Jamie W.
