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.

Not as good as the first three

I read the first three books in this series when I was much younger and really liked them. I decided to re-read all of them plus the last two in the series, which I had never read. I really wish I had stopped after re-reading the first three. The first three books are fantastic--very well-written and enjoyable. The last two books were significant disappointments when compared to the first three. The fourth book was by far the most disappointing, as I addressed in another review. The fifth book is significantly better than the fourth, but it still falls well-short of the quality of the original three.
