Book Review: An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars Age Recommended: 11 and up An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle was one of my favorites in the quintet. The beginning was a little confusing because the story was set one generation in the future and the main character was Meg and and Calvin’s daughter, Polly, but the rest of the book was extraordinary. The time gate has been opened again at the arrival of Polly O’Keefe. Polly has been at her grandparent’s house for a couple of weeks and her life has followed the same routine. One day, when she steps out to … Continue reading Book Review: An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Book Review: Many Waters by Madeleine L’Engle

Rating: 4.2 out of 5 stars Age Recommended: 11 and up Many Waters stands out in the Wrinkle of Time quintet, because the story’s focus is entirely on the Murry twins and there is almost no mention of Meg or Charles Wallace. In this book, there are many fictional creatures but the story felt real all the same. The story takes place during the time of Noah’s Ark and the twins are absolutely sure that they are there to change something. What that is, they don’t know. Sandy and Dennys, the Murry twins, are home alone one time, and in playing … Continue reading Book Review: Many Waters by Madeleine L’Engle

Book Review: A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars Age Recommended: 9 and up A Swiftly Tilting Planet is my favorite book of the quintet so far. In this book, Madeleine L’Engle introduces a number of new characters and the story line is very captivating. The book takes one back in time and the whole concept of “Within” is truly amazing. I loved how the concept of kything from A Wind In The Door was also used in this book. Calvin’s family is portrayed exceptionally well in this book, and his mother is one of the main characters. The story is written so that Mrs.O’Keefe’s history … Continue reading Book Review: A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle

Book Review: A Wind In The Door by Madeleine L’Engle

Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars Age Recommended: 8 and up A Wind In The Door is the second book in Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle In Time series. While this book wasn’t as good as the first, it was still a very good read and it made me use my imagination to see what the characters were experiencing. In this book, Meg is taken on a journey again, except this time, Charles Wallace is the one who needs help. Everybody has millions of mitochondria in their body which make cellular respiration possible. The book talks about fictional creatures called farandolae … Continue reading Book Review: A Wind In The Door by Madeleine L’Engle

Book Review: A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars Age Recommended: 8 and up The book is great but the story can be slightly scary at times. The story itself is ingenious and the characters are captivating but the topic is a bit unnerving. I liked the way that Madeleine L’Engle wrote the story because it had lots different things going on at the same time. She also didn’t add filler and she restrained from revealing information until it was absolutely necessary. Meg Murry is a girl who has never excelled in school. Her grades are terrible and it doesn’t help that the … Continue reading Book Review: A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle
