A wind in the door
A "Wind In The Door" is a fantastic adventure story involving Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe, the chief characters of "A Wrinkle In Time." The seed from which the story grows is the rather ordinary situation of Charles Wallace's having difficulty in adapting to school. He is extremely bright, so much so that he gets punched around a lot for being "different." He is also strangely, seriously ill (mitochondritis -- the destruction of farandolae, minute creature of the mitochondria in the blood). Determined to help Charles Wallace in school, Meg pays a visit to his principal, Mr. Jenkins, a dry, cold man with whom Meg herself has had unfortunate run-ins. The interview with Mr. Jenkins goes badly and Meg worriedly returns home to find Charles Wallace waiting for her. "There are, " he announces, "dragons in the twins' vegetable garden. Or there were. They've moved to the north pasture now."
Dragons ? Not really, but an entity, a being stranger by far than dragons; and the encounter with this alien creature is only the first step that leads Meg, Calvin, and Mr. Jenkins out into galactic space, and then into the unimaginably small world of a mitochondrion. And, at last, safely, triumphantly, home.

I forced myself to stay up last night to finish this book - folding laundry, emptying the dishwasher, playing solitaire, all with my earbuds in. Was it because this book was so awesome, I couldn't wait to find out how it ended? Not quite. A Wind in the Door has an interesting plot - at least interesting enough that I wanted to find out how it ended. But the reason I stayed up that extra hour was because the narration was so incredibly awful that I did not want to start my day with this irritatingly squeaky voice in my ears during my morning run. This sequel to A Wrinkle in Time starts out with a pretty good plot - space travel, mitochondria - I almost stopped listening because I thought I should share this one with my son. The narration really went south, when a new character was introduced - tiny little microscopic entities that are part of our mitochondria. And tiny little creatures have to have very high squeaky voices. Turning the volume down and listening with just one ear bud improved things... but not by much. This is a book that should be read...in print.
LibraryThing ReviewUser Review - LibraryThing
I think what upsets me most is that all if the skill and craftsmanship of the first novel disappeared completely. Instead of interesting dialogue and concepts, this novel is filled with jumbled babble and for some reason the characters act as if the entire first book never happened. A serious disappointment of a book.
