    4.5 stars Re read for our readalong discussion on Friday 4 24 My favorite L Engle book ever, about the formative summer when Vicky Austin s grandfather is dying and she meets a young marine biology student who teaches her to swim with dolphins I m not sure any other YA author has ever come close to L Engle s complex and intelligent story telling with the Austin family, which is secure in its wisdom that everyday life is dramatic enough without

    I first read this book as an early teen I can see now, reading it as an adult, that having read this book along with all Madeleine L Engle s other books at twelve and thirteen clearly had a profound impact on my world view L Engle s writing has a depth and profundity that draws on emotions of which most writers only attempt to scratch the surface.I think all developing adolescents should read this book and all its accompanying ones, if only to see th

    Battle is over for this book, at any rate Before anyone starts throwing stones or even worse missiles, I have to point out that this is not a review, but rather a response Further, I read this book at the wrong time Which is NOT code for saying that it s an immature book you could only love if you read it as a child But really, rather than desiring to avoid abuse, I hate to say why a book that is an abiding favourite for so many friends is one that really d

    This is all about dolphins, adolescent life, death and regeneration of limbs in dolphins and the possibilities on human.Though the narrative was okay,the character descriptions was alright and the story line is some how muddied but I will give this book 2 stars.

    A Ring of Endless Light takes what could be a beautiful, poignant book with the most saintly of grandfathers and a reverence for the poetic soul, dries it out, overloads it with sentiment, and then beats it over the head with understanding and well wishing And that s my polite impression of it.Honestly, I don t know how anyone can like this book unless they find picture perfect, saccharine families and neat answers appealing Vicky is the most understanding and emotionally and psycholo

    In my youth I was on a L engle tear having gone through the Time serieshowever I didn t get the memo that L engle s writing ministry developed into one catered towards guiding pre adolescent females through their awkward years.Needless to say, I caught on when I realized that the books really weren t speaking to me like the others wereand I quietly returned this one back to the library and saw that I was the only dude to read the book for the past decadeA good read nonetheless

    I had to read Meet the Austins and The Moon by Night, the first two Austin Family novels, in eighth grade While I didn t like Meet the Austins as it read like a juvenile fiction book, I fell in love with The Moon by Night and the book s heroine, Vicky Austin I reread the book so many times, the pages are coming out.Surprisingly, I never picked up A Ring of Endless Light until college My sister read it for school and told me that it was a fellow Vicky Austin novel and was surprised I had not yet read it I
