Not Jest for kids. Very deep for knowing adults.

All of Madeleine L'Engle's books that I have listened to have been up beat with good moral lessons. The healthy mix of mythology, science and good moral sense added to a well written story line leaves a fresh taste in the mouth and a lifting of the heart. She was truly a master story teller.

Annoying narrator, lackluster story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Both my 10 y.o. child and I tried to listen to this, having enjoyed the first 3 books in the quintet and it was sort of dull and meandering like the 4th book.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It's an extremely dull plot, would be better to read than to listen to as an audiobook so you could skip around more readily.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ann Marie Lee’s performances?

No, her voice was really irritating

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
