Review: A Wind in the Door (Time Quintet #2) by Madeleine L’Engle

A Wind in the DoorMy 2018 Resolution Project for Speculative Chic was to read and review both the novel and film versions of A Wrinkle in Time. But I’m a completionist, so it should come as no surprise that I’d have to continue on this magical journey I somehow missed when I was a teenager. 

My full review is at Speculative Chic, but here’s a short excerpt:

This book had multiple layers of themes, from the limits of human adaptability to the definition of life. These are expanded upon with discussion about how they connect, and how everything connects — and affects — literally everything else. Despite the quest structure, the grand finale wasn’t about fighting a “big bad,” but about using these themes to overcome obstacles. Such a lesson is applicable to just about every conflict.

Rating: 4 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
