A Wind in the Door (Time, #2)
As with A Wrinkle in Time, the characterization in this book is a bit thin, and most particularly so for the main character, Meg. How old is she? 14 or so? She sure doesn't come across that way (she feels MUCH YOUNGER), among other things (anger, tantrums, sobbing fearful tears) in apparently being completely devoid of any typical teenage angst/hormones/feelings with regard to her "closeness" with 16-year-old Calvin. That aside, the theme here is (again) love... but it's gotten even weirder and more mystical than in the first book, devolving ultimately into incoherent poetry about the oneness of everything. I can appreciate a nicely wielded gilding of poetry in an otherwise prose composition, but this just feels tedious. Maybe I'm just too old for these books (a sad thought given my fond memories!) or maybe they really are as threadbare and clunky as they now seem. Disappointing!
