Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

A Wrinkle in Time (The Time Quintet #1) - Madeleine L'Engle, Anna Quindlen A children's fantasy in the vein of C.S. Lewis' Narnia series, or even Out of the Silent Planet, or more recently Philip Pullman. It's a little preachy at times (though not nearly so much so as Pullman), but it's hard to argue with a moral that says "Love is good, hate is bad" and "we are all individuals".

Meg can be a little annoying, but she's a pre-teen girl. 'nuff said.
