Kind of sad. I used to read her books when I was younger, and I loved everyone that I read.

My favorite of her books was "Many Waters." A pair of twins time traveling to the time of Noah's Ark, only everybody is a midget and they ride midget mammoths and there are also unicorns? How can that not be gold?

I remember reading A Wrinkle in Time under the covers with a flashlight when I was a kid so my parents wouldn't see the light underneath the door and tell me to go to sleep.  That's probably the best thing I could say about any author.

i loved her books.  Always will.  They were so damned hard to find too.  I spent many an hour hunting her books down in some forgotten section of the library.  Everytime i found one it was like finding a new vein of gold in a mine.

the one where they were in some guys cells, is what made me love her stuff.  I did a several page long book report on it.  Imagine trying to explain THAT book to a bunch of people who have never read it.

i dont understand you IM, how do you have such a sillily strong reaction to something so arbitrary?  if you dont like a book stop reading and go get another (free at the library) book to read.
