Many Waters | [Madeleine L'Engle]

Many Waters

A touch of computer keys, a blast of heat, and suddenly the Murry twins, Sandy and Dennys, are gasping in a shimmering desert land. If only the brothers had normal parents, not a scientist mother and a father who experiments with space and time travel. If only the Murry twins had noticed the note on the door of their mother's lab: Experiment in Progress. Please Keep Out....But it's too late for regrets.

Publisher's Summary

A touch of computer keys, a blast of heat, and suddenly the Murry twins, Sandy and Dennys, are gasping in a shimmering desert land. If only the brothers had normal parents, not a scientist mother and a father who experiments with space and time travel. If only the Murry twins had noticed the note on the door of their mother's lab: Experiment in Progress. Please Keep Out

But it's too late for regrets. There's a strange - and very small - person approaching, with a miniature mammoth in tow....

At last it's Sandy and Dennys's turn for an adventure - an adventure that turns serious when they discover that many waters are coming to flood the desert. The twins must find a way back home soon, or they will drown. But how will they get back to their own time? Can they?

    Story
    "Love! Mildly suggestive material."

    I read this series, as a child, and this was my favorite book of the series.
    It's so fascinating, to bring to life the story of Noah and the flood, and combine it with science fiction.
    Having said that, I would like to warn parents about a couple of "iffy" parts, that were mildly uncomfortable or suggestive. First, it talks about the girls being topless, and having "small, rosy breasts, which she covered". My boys were a bit embarrassed. It was handled as tastefully as possible, but...
    Next, there is some seduction, and also a part where it says that the main character "...knew what he wanted, what his body wanted, and that he was ready for it. But not with this girl....but with the other one..." This is while a girl is trying to seduce him.
    I am really picky, with my kids, and these parts, I would have preferred weren't there...but they did pass so quickly, that I am not sure that my kids really noticed. (My oldest is 12 1/2.)
    I just think it's fair to warn parents.

    Story
    "Loved the book, not the narrator"

    I love this series from Madeleine L'Engle and I've read Many Waters a number of times. In listening to it, I found that it is a better book read than heard. I'm not sure if that came from the narration or if the book really was more simplistically written than Wrinkle In Time series featuring Meg and Charles Wallace.

    I have listened to the other older books in this series and found them to be as good as I remember the written novels. The narrator was wonderful with different voices for different characters and really drawing me into the book. I found the narrator for this book to be very hard to listen to. Her words were overly enunciated to the point of being distracting and there was very little nuance in her voice or how she spoke the characters or situations. It was clear to me that she was "reading a book" rather than "telling a story" which tends (for me) to be the best part of the audio book. I would actually go out of my way not to listen to a book with this narrator.

    That being said, I love this story and was overall disappointed in the performance.

    Story
    "Love this book . . ."
    Would you listen to Many Waters again? Why?

    I am listening to it again. I haven't read/listened to


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bringing the story of Noah's Ark to life. I don't necessarily think it really happened quite like that, but still, it opens the mind to possibilities . . .


    Have you listened to any of Ann Marie Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had a hard time stopping at each end of my commute.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm interested to hear
