    "Not for me"

    I've got to read the book review to find out what the story behind the story is.

    This is not my style of reading

    "Awesome!"

    I'm a 31 year-old attorney who never read this book as a child. I've been an Audible member for 3 years and have never written a review. This is a phenomenal book. Astrophysics, fantasy, moral allegory and lessons on individuality all rolled into one superb tale. A must read for any age.

    "Great Story"

    Excellent story; well worth every award it received but the reader's choice of voicing does not match up to the quality of the book. Still the story is strong enough to compensate.

    "It was great!!"

    This book started out a little slow, but then it started to get intense!!!!!! I loved this book!! My favorite part was when Meg and Charles went into a town where everything was exactly the same.!

    I value intelligent stories with characters I can relate to. I can appreciate good prose, but a captivating plot is way more important.

    Story
    "Am I too old for this? Or too late?"

    Other than one of the best opening lines of all time, I don't think there was anything in this novel that I enjoyed.

    It may have been groundbreaking at the time, but I don't think there was anything in this book that stands the test of time. Too many other authors have done too many similar stories, and explored the interest aspects of this time of plot in far more depth.

    "Sweet story"

    I liked how the children were smart, and spoke well of. This book will be great for the young people in my life. it could be considered scary to a five year old, but really makes the young people see they are able to conquer evil.

    Story
    "A favorite childhood read..."

    ...Now passed down to my son! Listened to this together and I'm sure I enjoyed it as much as he did!

    Written with enough of a moral to take something away from it but without sermonizing! A fantastic & creative tale that revs up even this dusty, old imagination!

    I'm a tough crowd and I just confirmed this is not my genre. If I was into fantasy/fiction, I would've liked it more.


    What could Madeleine L'Engle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Last.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, very creative.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Wonderful Book, but find the other copy"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful book, and it was the first audiobook I engaged with as a child (it's worth reading for those of all ages). However, the author does her own narration, which is, in my mind, superior to anyone else's.
