In a conversation about the Madeline L'Engle's Kairos Cycle.
Dude: Did you read all of them?
Me: No. I tried. Earlier this year, I started in on them, but they were way too Christian for me. And the endings of each book were pretty basic garbage writing. I get why they're important. And I'm glad they exist for the people who like them. But, mainly, I think, the best thing they ever did was inspire other women to write better science fiction books for children.
Dude: You couldn't make it through three childrens' books?
Me: There's eight of them. Wrinkle In Time, Wind In The Door, Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, Mostly Harmless, Fantastic Beasts, Rogue One, and The Simarillion.
Dude: Fuck you.
Me: There really are eight of them.
