Popular High Rating Book: A Ring of Endless Light

Book Review: A Ring of Endless Light

Rating: 5 stars

“A Ring of Endless Light” by Madeleine L’Engle is a fictional, poetic story about an almost 16-year-old girl who is spending the summer with her family and Grandfather on Seven Bay Island. Her Grandfather is battling leukemia and a lot of this book is about handling death and questioning life.

Vicky is trying to decide between three different guys: one, Leo, who Vicky wants to just be a friend, Zachary, who drives too fast and scares Vicky most of the time, and Adam, who Vicky feels the closest too, but Adam treats her like a child just when Vicky feels like finally growing up. Confused and curious, Vicky has philosophical discussions with her family and meets Basil, Noberta, and Njord, three dolphins that she can communicate almost telepathically with.

I thought this book was very deep and meaningful because it gives a different perspective on life and death. Teenagers 12-16 would probably enjoy this book the most out of any age group.

Book Review: A Ring of Endless Light

Rating: 5 stars

Commander Rodney is dead and Vicky Austin’s friend Zachary with his suicidal actions may be to blame. Vicky’s grandfather is diagnosed with a terminal cancer and will probably not live through the summer. To get her mind off things Vicky takes up a job helping Adam, who is studying to become a marine biologist, with his project on dolphin communication. Zach brings Vicky down but claims he needs her to stay well. Adam and the dolphins help her be herself but then Adam puts distance between himself and Vicky. Leo, Commander Rodney’s son, is just flat out in love with her.

I found A Ring of Endless Light to be a fun and uplifting novel. I could relate to the way Vicky feels in many of the situations. It’s nice to finally read a book where the main character isn’t a complete idiot. I’d give it a five out of five! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a pleasant book to read. It’s a real pick-me-upper with strong and powerful writing.

Book Review: One the Greatest! Two Thumbs Up!

Rating: 5 stars

Vicky Austin is so much like me. She is caring, sweet, and at times a little overwhelmed yet she is optimistic about life. She loves to read and write, like me. And she doesn’t know where life is going to take her, but she follows the path with compassion and trust. She doesn’t know if she can make all of the right choices but she never let go of her dreams. I nominate this book for the high-ratings club! A True One Of A Kind! Thumbs up to Mrs. L’Engle!
