Many Waters (A Wrinkle in Time Quintet, #4)

Many Waters (A Wrinkle in Time Quintet, #4) Some Things Have To Be Believed To Be SeenSandy And His Twin Brother, Dennys, Are The Practical, Down To Earth Members Of The Murry Family They Have Never Paid Much Attention To Their Scientist Parents Talk Of Highly Theoretical Things Like Tesseracts And Farondalae But Now Something Has Happened To Sandy And Dennys That Drastically Stretches Their Powers Of Belief And, When Disaster Threatens The Oasis Where They Have Made Their Home, Can They Find A Way Back To Their Own Time Many Waters Is The Fourth Book In Madeleine L Engle S Classic Time Quintet Yes, there will be spoilers, but, seriously, it doesn t matter, because you don t want to read this book.All right So this book deals with Sandy and Dennys, who have been little better than side characters in the other books They are Meg and Charles Wallace s normal brothers Twins It also takes place prior to A Swiftly Tilting Planet, while the twins are sports stars in high school The impression I got is that they are probably juniors and about 17 years old Basically, the boys walk into Yes, there will be spoilers, but, seriously, it doesn t matter, because you don t want to read this book.All right So this book deals with Sandy and Dennys, who have been little better than side characters in the other books They are Meg and Charles Wallace s normal brothers Twins It also takes place prior to A Swiftly Tilting Planet, while the twins are sports stars in high school The impression I got is that they are probably juniors and about 17 years old Basically, the boys walk into their mother s lab and, when they walk out of it, rather than going back into the kitchen of the house, they end up in the days of Noah Yes, that Noah The one that built the big boat Hence the title of the book.There s never any firm conclusion as to how they got transported back in time It may or may not have had to do with an experiment that was going on in the lab, though the type of experiment is never explained, or it may have had to do with them messing with their dad s weird computer, or, maybe, it was just God.They end up in the desert Of course, they re wearing winter clothing, which they soon discard all the way down to their skin Because that s always a smart thing to do in the desert Get nearly naked, that is The end result of that is that about 1 3 of the book deals with them being nursed back to health by Noah s family, who mistake the twins for giants, because no one in Noah s day was even near to being 5 tall A lot of this section of the book also has the repeated conversation with, well, every freaking character they meet, We re not giants And it s not that I don t think they wouldn t have had to have had that conversation, but does L Engle really need to repeat it 10 or so times.This book also follows the pattern of all of the books in the series The characters really don t ever do anything Sandy and Dennys talk a lot about how they will get home um, no, wait They ask that question a lot Every few pages it seems How will we get home I don t know What should we do Let s go garden Seriously, that s their solution every time the question comes up, to work in Noah s father s garden Basically, they end up being observers to the action going on around them and that s pretty much it And what that comes down to is that the rising action in this book is about like a road in West Texas with a speed bump on it when Sandy gets kidnapped.Aside from the lack of any real story or character development, the book is full of all kind of ridiculousness 1 There are mammoths Yes, in the desert But these are not the mammoths you re thinking of You know, the big, hairy elephants No, these are tiny mammoths Terrier sized mammoths In fact, they pretty much are small dogs that look like mammoths The mammoths can scent things and follow trails like a bloodhound, but they are also used as dowsing rods to find water Which explains why the desert people keep them as pets, I suppose, but how did they get tiny Well, evidently, they evolved to be that way The explanation is something along the lines of them having grown smaller and smaller over a great time.2 However, the Earth in this book is a brand new Earth A very young planet still going through its growing pains, so the whole thing with the mammoths doesn t really make any sense L Engle seems to want to have the Earth both be billions of years old and only 5000 or so years old as in the strict Creationist viewpoint.3 There are manticores and griffons Or a manticore and a griffon It s never clear on whether there arethan one of each The manticore is bad and just shows up rather like a cartoon character to shout hungry and try to eat the little doggy mammoths and have to be shooed away The griffon shows up to chase bad girls away from Sandy and Dennys.4 L Engle seems to have a thing with unicorns, because there areunicorns in this book Virtual unicorns, as the twins call them They don t always exist, only when you decide you believe in them and, of course, they can only be approached by virgins The annoying thing with the unicorns is that even after the boys have experiences with the unicorns, they go on and on about how they can t believe in them because they don t exist, so they can only believe in the unicorns when the unicorns are actually standing right in front of them I have to suppose that they ceased to believe in their family, too, when their family quit being right in front of them The issue with all of this is that L Engle, from what I can tell, wants us to accept this book as being set in reality, our reality, and, yet, she undermines reality by introducing all of this mythological stuff into what we re supposed to believe is the actual pre flood setting It ssuspension of disbelief than I could handle, and I haven t even gotten to the Angels.5 Oh, yes, the Angels The pseudo conflict in the book is between the seraphim the good Angels and the nephilim the bad Angels In fact the whole conflict revolves around a girl, Yalith, who everyone is in love with, so it becomes a matter of whom she will choose one of the twins or both or Eblis, the nephilim It s an empty conflict through which L Engle seems to deliver her message of bad things don t happen to good people a message which makes me wonder what reality L Engle lived in, because it s the same kind of message all of her books have Love will always win and, ultimately, nothing bad happens to people who believe in love.Speaking of Yalith and male female relationships in general in this book This may have been the most difficult part of the book for me to deal with Yalith is the youngest child of Noah she s nearly 100 years old because people in Noah s time lived much longer Noah is 700ish , but she s basically a teenager Because, you know, living longer means slower growth Which makes me wonder how long would remain a baby in this time 20 years Because, man, if I was a mom, I d be pissed Having to care for an infant for 20 years I can t even imagine it, especially since pregnancy still only last nine months because there was a birth during the book You could end up with, well, a lot of babies Actually, what I think she wants us to believe is that everyone ages normally until they hit puberty when they, for whatever reason, quit developing Still, that means around 90 years as a teenager That would be the worst Oh, back to the twins and male female relationships So Sandy meets Yalith Yalith is basically naked, because the people in Noah s time only wear loincloths In the desert Because we have examples of people today who live in the desert but only wear loincloths At any rate, Yalith is all but naked, and Sandy is a teenage boy confronted with a naked girl and his response is to get a funny feeling Um, what A funny feeling What does that even mean And that s how all of the interactions between the twins and girls go They get funny feelings I m sorry these boys are supposed to be 16 or 17 years old, and L Engle is treating them as if they re, at best, 10 It s ridiculous.The twins do end up back at home after spending at least a year in the desert with Noah One of the Angels removes the boys tans and, I suppose, the year orthey had aged, although that s not actually mentioned So they end up back at home right at the point they d left and nothing has changed There was no character growth for the twins and nothing of consequence affected in the past The flood still happens and all of that It s a book where the goal is to return to the status quo but without even the benefit of the characters learning anything from the journey In fact, the boys pick up talking about getting their driver s licenses as if nothing had even happened Just barely edged out as my favorite book in the series right behind A swiftly Tilting Planet Tells a story less concerned with love and justice and all about the hard choices that people and deities make in a flawed world.An out and out retelling of the Biblical Deluge from the point of view of two modern teenagers Unique in that it makes no apology for all the

girls, men who live for centuries, strange voices in the forest Surprisingly, this was one of the most original fantasy lands a novel had taken me to up till that point It always amuses me when people say coming of age story when what they really mean is sexual awakening And don t be confused, there is a difference Take for instance Hayao Miyazaki s 2001 film Spirited Away, this is a great example of a coming of age film Yes, the protagonist Chihiro does meet a certain dragon boy she may likethan a friend but this is not what pushes the character development, what pushes her to grow up are the

this is not what pushes the character development, what pushes her to grow up are the lessons she learns about hard work, sacrifice and caring about others Sandys and Dennys on the other hand don t change much throughout Many Waters they exit our story much as they enter it, self sufficient, hard working and caring What changes in their story is the capacity of sexual and emotional desire they become aware of Reading this I got a very different vibe from the rest of the Time books While this one is no exception to the publisher s rule where it s cover has the words a companion to a Wrinkle in Time written across the front, unlike all the other books in the series, I felt that this was the only one that was self sufficient enough to stand on its own Almost to the point where I wonder if Le Engle, after having written these books several decades apart, didn t write this asof an adult novel, knowing like many authors who undertake long IR series such as Harry Potter , that the original demographic would have grown up by then After all, there s quite a few things that make this book a questionable choice for the younger set that AWiT was aimed at Sandy, tied and bound in a tent hears his captors voice and calls her name When she expresses delight at him recognizing her she thinks it s by her voice and yet we see him say to himself quite clearly I recognized you by your scent you slut And earlier on Dennys tells of his afternoon walk through the oasis bazaar and his difficulty in looking at all the faces around him for he knows they re to be drowned Again, not exactly elementary school stuff.However, that being said, you d think a children s book by a Christian author set in biblical times where the village seductress is called a slut would be pretty stuffy when it came to messages on sex and women, but surprisingly it s not Le Engle makes a pretty radical move by having some of her characters call the Noah story chauvinistic from the get go, addressing some of the tension head on And while the story does not drastically alter from that in the bible Le Engle surprised me by angling the story from a pretty feminine perspective Yes, two young adolescent boys are the main narrators, and yet most of the story revolves around activities like watering animals and plants, gardening, cooking, caring for the elderly, birthing and marriage all the things our society typically considers to be feminine The first place Dennys is taken to that is considered safe and whole in the story is the tent the women use for menstruation, and while there are an equal number of men and women in Noah s tent less time is given to the sons than the daughters It would have been easy to center this story around the building of the arc, hunting and other masculine activities and yet we spend time in the women s tent and out on rocks under star lit skies where sisters talk about husbands and children.And the sex Ah the sex This isn t your grandma s bible story that s for sure Or maybe not, but somehow the constant sexual tension of a might have been threesome never made it s way into any of MY Baby s First Bible The message here is not so much one of abstinence as other s have suggested as it is understanding that who you have sex with the first time matters just as much as who you have sex with once you are settled down The message here isn t don t do it it s don t do it carelessly So in the end did I like itthan AWiT Yes, and no It s a horse of a different color to be sure I think as a piece of children s literature I loved, and always will love, AWiT the best But as a grown up s book Many Waters is a finely crafted and startling re imagination of Biblical times that belongs right up their with The Red Tent Highly recommended I enjoy L Engle s books, for the most part This one was no exception, but my favorites will always be A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind In The Door, since they don t have the main problem this and A Swiftly Tilting Planet do, mainly the fact that the twins in this one and Charles Wallace in Planet don t really DO anything Sure, they go to a different time and place, but then what They just wait to go back home

anything Sure, they go to a different time and place, but then what They just wait to go back home That s not to say that the book was written poorly, it just feels like there was not much point to Sandy and Den being there They just went about their daily life as much as they could, and helped Noah and Grandfather with basic chores Even at the end, when the arc was being built, they just helped build it they did not really have anything to overcome Sure, the nephil were there and halfway worked against them, but the only times either of the twins were in danger, it did not feel like there was any doubt at all that they would be saved, or able to get themselves out of it, and it did not feel like the nephil would have actually hurt them.Overall, it was a well written story, and does add some depth to Sandy and Den It is also and interesting way to read the story of Noah and the flood No one seems to acknowledge these books as much as A Wrinkle in Time, but this one was by far my favorite And maybe this is an overreaction, but I thought this one story was really beautiful I really liked the Biblical time that the twins Sandy and Dennys went back to, and how in that time, angels were on the earth with humans It was interesting that they could take the form of an animal, and it was clear that the Seraphim were good and the Nephilim evil There were so many characters in this No one seems to acknowledge these books as much as A Wrinkle in Time, but this one was by far my favorite And maybe this is an overreaction, but I thought this one story was really beautiful I

and it was clear that the Seraphim were good and the Nephilim evil There were so many characters in this story that it was a little hard to keep them straight, but I love when there are a lot of characters I was surprised at some of the content, as this book is supposed to be for kids I mean, I first read it when I was a kid and I didn t really understand the whole concept of unicorns unable to be touched by anyone who isn t a virgin I didn t get what the word slut meant This one has a surprising take on the idea that women are never named or included in the Biblical stories It s always so and so and his wife such and such and his daughter So though the main characters are two boys, Many Waters had a sort of feminist take on it What amuses me about the Time books mostly the third and the fourth is that the summaries make them seem like a science fictiony adventure, but really they deal a lotwith religion and the nature of good and evil I love Many Waters because I always wanted to hear about the twins and what was going on with them I did find it slightly creepy that they were thought of as one person, and near the end Yalith was all, I love you both and kissed them It seems like something odd to be taken lightly But then again, this book was crazy, and if you haven t read it yet, you should Or maybe not, since I probably spoiled a lot of it so this was the first of all the books which made me realize while i was reading it that it was all christian imagery i mean, the arc and all noah hard to miss, right and that s what people say about aslan just a jesus allegory but i didn t have any christian education as a child, so i missed all of that and most people say the same when i was a kid i didn t realize it had all that christian metaphor which i think means that in effect, it didn t if we don t know the correspond so this was the first of all the books which made me realize while i was reading it that it was all christian imagery i mean, the arc and all noah

and whatever else we can relate it to in our own experience if you re not christian, they re not christian books they are just books, and you can place them in your universe of experience however you see fit.that said, i remember thinking if the bible was as sexy as this book i think i was fourteen when i read it and those boys are supposed to be CUTE and there s that angel who keeps trying ot have sex with one of them i mean, that s pretty cool You know that sliver of Genesis between the interminable lists of old dudes And Methuselah lived 969 years, blah blah blah and the tempestuous God

or kill them off before they can fulfill El s plan hide spoiler , but that s not until the veeeeeery end.I found L Engle s fantasy elements just as, well, fantastical as always The unicorns squee , mammoths, seraphim, and nephilim are all intricately rendered, and make for a mystical tour of the Book of Genesis She offers me so muchthan the stale lists and epochs of the original work However I don t know It fell a little flat with me There was so much buildup for too little resolution view spoiler the floods start, and Sandy, Dennys, and the seraphim come up with a haphazard plan to return the twins to their own time in the last ten pages of the book hide spoiler It felt tacked on, underdeveloped Plus, how creepy weird is the love triangle between Sandy, Dennys, and Noah s daughter, Yalith They both want to bang her, and she wants to bang both of them, but they never exactly talk about it Quasi twincest is a strange choice for a kids book, L Engle, but okay Overall, a welcome

Meg and Charles Wallace, however, this novel is about their normal siblings Sandy and Dennys The twins have always been the ordinary members of the extraordinary Murry family and haven t taken part in previous adventures, but when they fool around with their father s computer and inadvertently mess up his experiment with tessering through time and space, they suddenly find themselves in the midst of the story of Noah and the Ark, straight out of the Bible It s just like those Greatest Adventure cartoons with Derek, Margo and Moki that they used to make us watch in Sunday School This begins their unbelievable new life in pre Flood Earth and by unbelievable, I mean hard for me to believe I find a lot of elements of L Engle s writing difficult to swallow even for Children s Literature, and this novel is probably my least favorite of the series although I have yet to read the fifth in part because the beginning is so badly written Sandy and Dennys have a very clich conversation that smacks of speedy, lazy character exposition la Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys or the Sweet Valley Twins Then for no particular reason, the two boys are typing a request into the computer that they be transported some place warmer than the cold New England climate where they live Magically, the computer is able to comply and I find myself wishing that going on a vacation to Maui were really that simple L Engle tries to explain some of this with a lot of talk about quantum leaps and particle physics, but even in a science fictional world where time space travel is possible, this all sounds like a load of hooey.If a reader doesn t get hung up on these things, though, I admit that there s a lot of interesting stuff going on in this novel, even though the plot is rather slow Seraphim and nephilim, creatures which L Engle developed from a few vague biblical references, live amongst the humans in pre Flood Earth At first, it is not clear exactly who or what they are they are described as beautiful giants with wings that are able to assume animal forms Neither is it clear whether they are good or evil at first the race of men know that these creatures are a different species and some consider it to be an honor to be chosen as a mate for these glorified beings A great deal of tension comes from the interplay between the humans, seraphim and nephilim as some of the characters wrestle with whether to trust the nephilim in particular Over the course of the novel, it becomes clear that the seraphim are angels and the nephilim are fallen angels, and it is the development of this largely ignored Biblical mythology that I find to be the most interesting aspect of the novel Though the nephilim are only mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, there is a lot of potential to mine from those brief references.Sandy and Dennys find themselves amidst the tension between the seraphim and nephalim, as well as the tension between Noah and his father Though the two boys initially suffer life threatening heat stroke from prolonged exposure to the desert environs, they manage to help reunite the Biblical patriarch and his stubborn, aging parent thus securing themselves a place within Noah s family Though they miss the rest of the Murrys, who remain back in the twentieth century, they have no idea of how they might return home and so they adjust to life in pre Flood civilization They cannot dismiss the nagging question, though, of what will happen to them when the torrential rains come.As in all of L Engle s Time Quintet novels, the journey across time and space is a catalyst for the characters to learn something about themselves and grow into the world around them Sandy and Dennys are fairly immature and thoughtless at the beginning of the novel, messing with their father s computer equipment, and they are extremely dependent on each other, functioning as two halves of a whole Separated while they recover from their heat stoke and severe burns, the two begin to think and operateindependently of one another, and living in the muchharsh environment without the comforts of twentieth century technology forces them to mature in other ways Finally, while they have generally ignored girls and romance up until this point, they both fall in love with Noah s youngest daughter Yalith, which becomes another source of tension and a catalyst for further emotional development.While I found these coming of age themes to be interesting, there is a lot of sexual content to this novel that is not present in the first three novels of the Time Quintet In fact, when reading A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet, I got the distinct impression that L Engle went out of her way to avoid any overt romantic or sexual activity Throughout the first two novels, Meg and Calvin s relationship is referred to as a special friendship, and even when they are married and expecting a child in the third novel, Calvin is attending a scientific conference out of the country and Meg is in many ways still characterized as a young and innocent girl This novel is therefore quite different the nephilm seduce and marry human women, then have their women try to seduce the twins in order to discoverinformation about them Meanwhile, Sandy and Dennys struggle with their attraction to the same young woman throughout the novel But although I don t have a problem when books have sexual content, I find it unsettling that a novel written at the children s level so openly discusses lust and seduction.Overall, Many Waters was fairly unappealing to me for these reasons I found the science fiction aspects to be too incredible for readers any older than eight or nine years old, yet the sexual content to be inappropriate for anyone of that age Yet I will admit that there were enough aspects of the story that I found interesting that by the time I had read two thirds of the novel, I wanted to see exactly how Sandy and Dennys would escape the Great Flood and return home The last one hundred pages wereabsorbing, and though I can t really say that I ever became engrossed in the novel, I will say that I can see why some readers would enjoy this story If you love L Engle s other writing, or if you are really interested in the concept of traveling back through time to experience the events of the Bible, then you will probably like this novel well enough Therefore, I ll rate it with a provisional three stars a good read for those of you with specific tastes and interests Generally, though, I consider this to beof a two star book and for most readers, the novel probably isn t worth your time Still reflecting on this one It s so lyrical, thoughtful, and strange Nothing like the other Time books Though L Engle uses simple language and descriptions, the world she paints has so much contrast and so many unexpected elements that I was wholly immersed, thinking about it even when I wasn t reading and it s been awhile since that happened.If you re anticipating this to be a piece of preachy historical Bible fiction because of the subject matter, you ll be surprised, as I was It never Still reflecting on this

because of the subject matter, you ll be surprised, as I was It never goes quite where you think it will, and there is a pervasive sense of melancholy and wisdom the kind of wisdom gained only from seeing the darker parts of people I could actually feel the twins growing up as the book progressed The following passage really struck me when I read it a good summary of the book s main themes I don t like entropy, Sandy said The universe winding down I don t think it s winding down, Dennys contradicted I think it s still being birthed Even the flood is part of the birthing I don t understand Sandy s voice was flat Everybody knows that entropy Everybody doesn t And entropy is in question, anyhow Remember, we had that in science last year There s no such thing as an unbreakable scientific rule, because, sooner or later, they all seem to get broken Or to change Grandfather Lamech said that these are last days The occasional slow drops of rain made Sandy on edge, and argumentative.Another spash of rain touched Dennys s face, muting the stars There have been many times of last days, he said, and they mark not only endings but beginnings
