Read from April 24 to 29, 2012

This wouldn't have been half the tale if not for the L'Engle's remarkable gift of characterization. Meg's teenaged angst is pitch perfect and yet not overcooked in the least. And what can one say about the story, which never once goes anywhere predictable. The central theme of individuality, personal choice, consequence is playfully elusive and I like that most of all. There's also a heavy dose of spirituality - heavy but never heavy handed. The text, from the early 60's, hasn't dated in the slightest. Only regret? I didn't read this when I was the right age for it.
