Anne-with-an-e discovered Madeleine L'Engle last year, and has been hooked.
Yesterday, she wrote up this brief review of A Ring of Endless Light, so she's stepping in to blog today.
"A Ring of Endless Light" is one of my favorite books!
I've read it five times since I first found it at the library last summer, and since then, I have also read A Wrinkle in Time, The Moon by Night, and An Acceptable Time.
What I really like about it is the characters. They are so interesting!
The movie, on the other hand, was nowhere near as good as the book. (Characters they left out: John, Leo, Grace, Binnie, Nancy Rodney, Jeb Nuttley, and probably somebody else, too...) And after I read the book, I was rather upset with the Disney Channel.
Although this is a wonderful novel, I would not recommend it to anyone under the age of thirteen because of some mature content.
Lastly, I want to include my frequent rant ( more of a whine, really) about that Zachary Gray person: I never understood why Ms. L'Engle kept putting him in her books. He never changes, and he's just as much of a jerk in "An Acceptable Time" as he was in this book. I don't know what Vicky sees in him. He kept saying that he "needed her" but she can't be his psychologist.
Earth to Vicky, Earth to Vicky! Not a good reason to go out with him!
Thanks, Anne! You can blog for me anytime.
