    Description

    In this companion volume to A Wrinkle in Time (Newbery Award winner) and A Wind in the Door fifteen-year-old Charles Wallace and the unicorn Gaudior undertake a perilous journey through time in a desperate attempt to stop the destruction of the world by the mad dictator Madog Branzillo. They are not alone in their quest.

    Charles Wallace's sister, Meg - grown and expecting her first child, but still able to enter her brother's thoughts and emotions by "kything" - goes with him in spirit.

    But in overcoming the challenges, Charles Wallace must face the ultimate test of his faith and will, as he is sent within four people from another time, there to search for a way to avert the tragedy threatening them all. "L'Engle's gifts are at their most impressive here". (Publisher's Weekly)

    Re-experience the magic

    I was a precocious reader and wished to re-experience some of my fond childhood places. I found it every bit as charming as I did the first time so many years ago. Still entertaining and still enlightening.

    A brilliant story superbly told!

    Madeleine L'Engle always inspires me. She brings together science fiction, theology and philosophy in vivid fictional narrative. I have returned to this book often and it never disappoints!

    Another Great Book

    I am a huge fan of Madeline L'Engle's Time Quintet bells and would recommend the whole series to everybody.

    Richness, depth, a sense of interconnectedness

    I have just finished the first three books in the Time Quintet series. This is by far the deepest and most emotionally rich of the three. There are some cultural problems with the story which grow out of beliefs and biases from the time when the book was written - especially the over-idealization of American Indian culture as innocent and pure, which has a bit of a racist overtone. But aside from a few of these problems, the story is compelling. The book makes you feel the interconnectedness of humanity and it stresses the importance of living to heal the past and the future. Highly recommend.

    Narration distracts from story

    Story doesn't hold up as we'll over time as I expected, but even then, the narration is just not-quite-right throughout the book.

    Wonderful story!

    Would you listen to A Swiftly Tilting Planet again? Why?

    I read this book when I was young so it was a treat to listen to it. Even after all of the years between then and now it remains a wonderful story that is full of hope and promise and some history as well. Madeline L'Engle is a fanstastic story teller.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Swiftly Tilting Planet?

    All of it was great, but I particularly liked the parts where Charles Wallace entered into other characters to reveal their stories.

    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Ehle???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I really enjoyed her reading.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wouldn't say that there was one moment, there were many - most of them dealing with the character of mankind.

    Not for kids

    While A Wrinkle in Time was enchanting and the next book fairly good, this 3rd in the series is dark and very confusing. One needs to write a genealogy chart to get the characters ordered. Now I know why I didn’t read this and the 2nd book to my kids when young.

    Horrible.

    Skipped thru it. Horrible narrator. Voice is annoying. Wish you would've use actual different voices. They all sound the same.

    Narrator's interpretations are off and significantly detract.

    L'engles writing is detailed, highly nuanced and requires subtlety at points. The narrator misreads the tone of the text in numerous places. Where intensity is called for, the narrator comes across as whining, for example. A more accurate and thoughtful performance would greatly improve this audio book.

    Good read

    Good book. Not as good as the 1st two books but still good. I would recommend it to anyone who is reading the series.
