really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, young-adult-children
Read in January, 1989

Set in the same world as "A Wrinkle in Time" this book is about the twins, Sandy and Denny, who get mentioned all the time in the previous three books, but never get talked about much. This book is (and I know it's saying a lot to say this, considering the first three books) but this book is weird. The twins are pulled back into biblical times, right before the Flood. And everybody's about four feet tall (except for the angels of course) and live to be over 400 years old (except for the angels, who live forever...the good angels anyway) and there's love and magic and violence and a teeny bit of sex in between the chapters, and...weird. But very very neat. You don't hear about this book very often, (it gets overshadowed by A Wrinkle In Time) which is a shame, it's just as good as the others I think, in some cases maybe a teensy bit better.
