Amazon Customer reviews:
1) April R. Reviewed in Canada Aug. 31, 2019 - 5 of 5 stars #4 of 5. Fantastic book, fantastic series. Wonderful idea for the 4th book in this series. I really enjoyed it.
2) Tee Jay Reviewed in Canada Jun 5, 2018 5 of 5 stars - Five Star - Loved these books as a youth, now we're reading them with our children.
3) Amazon Customer Reviewed in Canada Jul 31, 2019 5 of 5 stars Fantasy - good read - If you liked Wrinkle in Time, you will enjoy this book
4) Mama V Reviewed in Canada Apr 7, 2018 - 2 of 5 stars Meh. Could've been a LOT better
Ok first of all this is the 4th book in the series not 3rd. It even has a 4 on the spine. Secondly SPOILERS AHEAD-- if you create a universe for yourself (as she did with wrinkle in time) where you could write pretty much WHATEVER you wanted about ANYTHING in space and time etc. Why would you choose to have it be about earth and have it be about lame Bible times? It's a waste to me. It's not overly interesting and doesn't really belong in the quintet in my opinion.
5) Murali Reviewed in India Aug 17, 2018 5 of 5 stars Great book. My 12 yr old daughter enjoyed it the most
6) Komal Reviewed in India Jan 21, 2020 5 of 5 stars Great book - Get ready to venture further than you've thought you could go! The Wrinkle in Time Quintet, the whole series is a special trip in to the intelligent imagination of possibilities in space and time that do much more than entertain (and entertain they do!). First, great stories

Many Waters (Time Quintet #4)

First published in 1986



Work Description

Sandy and Dennys have always been the normal, run-of-the-mill ones in the extraodinary Murry family. They garden, make an occasional A in school, and play baseball. Nothing especially interesting has happened to the twins until they accidentally interrupt their father's experiment.

Then the two boys are thrown across time and space. They find themselves alone in the desert, where, if they believe in unicorns, they can find unicorns, and whether they believe or not, mammoths and manticores will find them.

The twins are rescued by Japheth, a man from the nearby oasis, but before he can bring them to safety, Dennys gets lost. Each boy is quickly embroiled in the conflicts of this time and place, whose populations includes winged seraphim, a few stray mythic beasts, perilous and beautiful Nephilim, and small, long lived humans who consider Sandy and Dennys giants. The boys find they have more to do in the oasis than simply getting themselves home--they have to reunite an estranged father and son, but it won't be easy, especially when the son is named Noah and he's about to start building a boat in the desert.
