All about A Wind in the Door Audiobook Free
A Wind in the Door Audiobook is the second installment in the Time Quartet Audiobooks Series by Madeleine L’Engle, following the story of the same protagonists from the first novel, A Wrinkle in Time Audiobook.
This audiobook continues the story of Meg Murry and her younger brother Charles Wallace Murry, along with Meg’s friend and Calvin O’Keefe, all three characters returning from A Wrinkle in Time.
Meg Murry can’t help but be worried when her six-year-old brother, Charles Wallace, announces there are dragons in the vegetable garden. He’s so bright, and so different from other kids, he’s getting bullied at school, and he is also strangely, seriously ill.
But Charles Wallace is right about the dragons – actually a friendly entity who has come to help Charles Wallace fight his sickness, and to take Meg and her friend Calvin O’Keefe on a terrifying, wonderful journey into galactic space – where they must battle the force of evil to save Charles Wallace, and themselves.
The thing I liked best was how Madeleine L’Engle describes some moments and twisted the story downhill; and when you think the story is lost, it goes back up.
The first audiobook dealt with some very big themes, but the second volume expands even further, and I find it much more satisfying and unified. A Wind in the Door Audiobook Free challenges us to see past external appearances, and our own feelings and judgments.
Instead, we’re shown the way to name people, even those we despise and fill up the emptiness that threatens the universe with love and self-sacrifice. L’Engle also shows that the challenge is not a one-off test; we will face these tests again and again and again, and every time we will feel pain and fear as we make our decisions.

A Listening Library edition of A Wind in the Door Mp3 on four audio cassettes, unabridged and read by the author, was issued in 1994. In January 2012, Listening Library released an audio CD version narrated by actress Jennifer Ehle.
The narrator emoted in a way that would have been great if this were a simplistic tale for elementary school children. A Wind in the Door is much too subtle and nuanced for that. I would have liked something that better matched the complexity of the book.
