This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.
The fourth book of The Time Quintet, it did not disappoint me.
The twins seem to have done something wrong, when they touched an experimental computer in the lab. They are sent back in time, way back, to the time of Noah and the Ark.
This series is very good. The author does a good job in this book, giving us a chance to see the twins accomplish something quite extraordinary, instead of Charles Wallace and Meg. I like the way the author is able to give us a story about biblical times, without interjecting that it is anything more than fiction. If you are familiar with the story of Noah, this may seem like it has more truth than fiction. At the same time, it is not necessary to know religious teachings to enjoy this story.
In writing this story, Madeleine L'Engle once again leads the reader on a fantastic journey through space and time. The book allows the reader to decide how much of the story is true, and how much is made up. Of course, even those with a religious background will find much of this is fiction.
The Time Quintet series is a great set of books for the young adult reader. It is also great for readers of fantasy. I have already picked up the fifth book of the series, and, I have no doubt, will enjoy it as much as the first four books.
