Time Quintet

As I set out to read 100 Science-fiction books, I decided to read the rest of what is dubbed the Time Quintet by Madeleine L’Engle. I enjoyed how L’Engle mixed Science Fiction and Fantasy in A Wrinkly in Time and A Wind in the Door. Unfortunately, I think the author’s style and voice were affected by the order in which she wrote the subsequent books and the order and time at which they were published. A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door were great, but Many Waters and Swiftly Tilting Planet did not flow.

An Acceptable Time is supposed to round out the series but it is also supposed to round out another set of books about Calvin and Meg’s family. I don’t know if I’ll read that series or not.

At least these books helped me toward my goal. I have read 12 sci-fi books out of 100. Just 88 more to go :)
