Okay so how many times have I read the four books that proceeds this and still managed to be completely unaware of the existence of this one Picked from my sister's bookshelf and devoured over a uick excursion home for Christmas I could never uite shake the feeling that this was a bit of a step down from the other four Polly just isn't nearly as compelling a character as her mother or her uncles though she does grow on you Alex could very well be L'Engle's most relentlessly tiresome creation and the alternate world stumbled into isn't uite as vivid as her others but after a few chapters in I could hardly put it down which is rather inconvenient when there are family gatherings to attend And there is something deeply satisfying about circularities of time and connections between all things especially around Christmastime What has happened here in this time may have some effect we do not know and cannot even suspect here in my time or perhaps in yours Let us not try to understand the pattern but rejoice in its beauty

Th her grandparents turns into a lesson in the fluidity of time for Polly O'Keefe when she meets several strangers from overlapping temporal planes and with them plays a key role in a prehistoric confrontatio. An Acceptable Time does have a good message It teaches truth in that integrated mostly subtle way that good books should and in this is similar to the other books in the Time Series If indeed a series it really can be called The difference is that this book is boring Yes it continues the story of the Murry clan and yes it involves druids and blood sacrifice and time travel in a way uite parallel to A Swiftly Tilting Planet and yes it does eventually get around to a nice satisfying moral But Plot holes abound The dialogue is confusing and repetitive when it's not inane If it had been condensed to about half the length with serious dialogue editing it might have worked Read it because you love Madeleine L'Engle and the Murry clan but not because you expect it to be as good as A Wrinkle In Time It's not

My ‘experiment’ of reading the rest of the books in L’Engle’s “Time” series that I hadn’t read as a child that is all of them except A Wrinkle in Time has come to an end I’d wanted to see how they compared to the first book While they all have merit—L’Engle is a consummate story teller—none came close to the first at least not for me Whether that’s because I read and loved the first one as a child I’ll never knowI feel the biggest reason the other books are not as good as Wrinkle is that there’s no main character like the young flawed Meg in the others In this book especially Polly seems perfect so she’s not as real as her mother as a child was I had issues with the book before this one A House Like a Lotus yet there I found Polly interesting than here Then her struggles were mostly internal; here her struggles arise from the fantastical plot not from her character yes she has to deal with Zachary again but she’s not fighting within herself as she was before That may be an attempt to show Polly’s growth but I don’t think that’s what L’Engle intended by throwing the two of them together againI read this novel along with its respective endnotes in this edition
