1. I’ve only read A Wrinkle in Time and found that to be a bit beyond me. I just didn’t “get” L’Engle and so I’ve hesitated in picking anything else of hers up. Therefore I found your review (and observations about this book and the author) interesting.

    She seems to be a popular author who gets a lot of raves and so I feel kinda stupid when I say I don’t get her. But I don’t!

  2. What a great review, Amy. It sounds like it took a lot of patience and concentration, but it paid off.

    I put L’Engle in the “authors I love” category, though whether or not I like a given book by her depends a lot on timing, I think… If it happens to be working through subjects I’m thinking about, a book by her always enriches me a ton. If it’s about something I’m not necessarily interested in, I have a much harder time. Not all authors have that effect on me… Not sure why it is.

    Thanks for linking to me, too. It was neat to be reading L’Engle at the same time!

  3. I have wanted to read this book for years but it is out of print. 🙁 I just recently rejoined the library, though, so maybe they have it! Thanks for the reminder!

    I have pretty much read all of L’Engle’s books over the years except for this one and a couple others that are hard to track down!
