A Wind in the Door - Madeleine L'Engle

I read this one in less than a day when home sick from work.

 

I was unimpressed. I don't know if I read this before or not, but I'm personally not a fan of metaphysics

 

...allow me to explain. I consider myself a scientist. I understand science. I consider myself a spiritual person. I understand spiritual questing. I do not, however, think that scientific principles can be applied (especially by non-scientists) to spiritual matters. What you get is nonsense and mumbo-jumbo.

 

And THIS book was mumbo-jumbo.

 

Neither the science nor the spiritual questing in this book was believable to me. L'Engle managed to miss on both accounts.

 

Anyways, I'm beating a dead horse. I found the story contrived, dense, and trippy for trippiness' sake.I'm reading the next book, though, because I'm no quitter... (=
