bookshelves: fantasy
Read in November, 2007

This installment in the "Wrinkle in Time" quartet contains, as the others do, a wonderful and unusual mixture of ideas. It has spirituality and religion, fantasy, time and space travel, and philosophy, and nearly every page seems to celebrate life. While all the books in the quartet are very good, I think I liked this one and "Wrinkle in Time" the best. "A Swiftly Tilting Planet" was suspenseful, well-written, and beautifully done.

Ann These sound like lovely books. Is "Wrinkle in Time" the first book in the series?

message 2: by Qt (new) - rated it 4 stars

Qt Yes, it is; then there's "A Wind in the Door," "Many Waters," and then this one.

Ann Great! Thanks;)

Kathryn I should, perhaps, try to read "A Wrinkle in Time" someday! I seem to remember trying them when I was much, much younger and not being especially captivated. But, perhaps it was beyond me at the time. The series sounds wonderful now!!! Thanks for the great reviews.

Auntie J This one is also my favorite of the series.
