Charles Wallace and Meg, the Murry children, are going on another adventure through time. This time Meg is staying home. Charles Wallace is going to travel on a Pegasus, named Gaudior. They are going to try to stop Mad dog Branzillo, but can they? This was a very interesting adventure with the Murry children and magic, one of the books that makes you take a reality check. Charles Wallace is like my little cousin, James, because he is brave, smart, quiet, and shy. Meg, like me, is not very adventurous. She always has to keep an eye on the younger sibling. This is why I¿m sure that a lot of bookworms would enjoy this series.

Didn't like it as much

the average rating is five stars, but i can see that's because these people love the orginals. the other 3 books in this series are excellent, well worth reading. this one was just weird, confusing, and just not as good as the others. the story and plot are great though...

    A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle is another i

    A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle is another in the Time Quintet series. It was written third, but is fourth in the series.
    Fast forward through Meg’s high school and college years. She is now married to Calvin and expecting her first child. Sandy and Dennys are finishing college and Charles Wallace is 15. L’Engle’s style is still and interesting mix of Science Fiction and fantasy though I thought this book was a bit more “trippy” than the first two.

    Once again the fate of our world and possibly the whole universe is at stake. Instead of traveling to other worlds and interacting with imaginative creatures, there is more time travelling and altering.

    I’m curious to see what happens to this family in the next installment.

    Pretty good.

    This book was good but I wouldn't recommend it. I'm sorry but I just don't really like fantast/sci-fi books.
