I feel conflicted about reviewing this book – I’m 100% confident that if I had read this as a kid, (especially if I read it before some of the fantasy / sic-fi giants of the 90s) I would have given it 5/5 stars.

But, as a 28 year old, I give it 3/5, with the caveat that I am so glad I read it. I’m also so glad that L’Engle wrote great fantasy / sic-fi for kids in the 60s – we owe her so much credit for paving the way for things like Harry Potter and His Dark Materials. That said, I’m really glad that YA is a distinct genre now! While I loved the scope of this novel, I longed for deeper, more flawed characters, more darkness, and more world-building.

That said, this is (of course) a hugely wonderful book, and a fabulous introduction to the genre for kids.
