This is an excellent book. The twins make for significantly more interesting characters than Meg and CW, who always felt like Mary Sues, and as such, were hard to care about. The ideas and storytelling here are fantastic, though L'Engle's writing falls ferociously flat whenever the twins talk to each other. She uses it to present exposition to the reader, but it comes off forced and unnatural; they're identical twins for fuck's sake, these are guys who share a lot of knowledge. Writing them as fish out of water works in the context of the story, but not in the context of their relationship. Anyway, great book, go read it. ( )

The world's biggest "Ehhhhhhhh" goes to this book. It's not good enough to like and it's not bad enough to hate. It's just *there.* Easily my least favorite of L'Engle's books so far. ( )

Slow start, no character development, but it was entertaining. ( )
