"A swiftly tilting planet" review submitted by jim rock on October 23, 2008, 11:38am Sequel to "A Wringle in Time". Didn't have the same "scientific" feel too it. This is more mythology than sci-fi. Try "A Wringle in Time" first, because if you don't like it, you won't like this either. This book could be offensive to some Christian readers, as it mixes Christianity with Indian nature religion and magic Lincantations.

Charles Wallace submitted by kathscot on July 20, 2013, 4:56pm An interesting story, especially if you liked "A Wrinkle in Time"

A Swiftly Tilting Planet submitted by SBNB on July 31, 2014, 9:52pm This is my favorite book from the Wrinkle In Time series. Charles Wallace is charged with changing the present by altering the past. He's the main character in this book.

Great! submitted by lgpat on August 29, 2015, 12:10am L'engle is a great author

my favorite in the trilogy submitted by camelsamba on June 30, 2016, 9:31pm I know I've read this before (perhaps more than once), but I did not remember a thing. Of the original "Time trilogy", I like this the best. The story is complex and multi-layered, and the writing lovely. On the other hand, at times it felt too complicated for a bedtime read-aloud. I think my 12yo had a hard time keeping track of how the various threads and times tied together - in part because he sometimes fell asleep as I read (and I wouldn't be sure how much to re-read the next night!), but also because the character names from the different times are so similar, so seeing would probably work better than hearing. He enjoyed it enough that once we finished he asked if there were more books.
