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.
All of it was great, but I particularly liked the parts where Charles Wallace entered into other characters to reveal their stories.
No, but I really enjoyed her reading.
I wouldn't say that there was one moment, there were many - most of them dealing with the character of mankind.
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.
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.
"A poor delivery"
I suspect that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I might have done, because Jennifer Ehle's reading was truly awful.
