L. Ron Hubbard the Writer: Shaping of Popular Fiction

Book Review

A Ring of Endless Light

I read this book the first time when I was in junior high school. I loved it then, and read it a number of times.

I recently picked up a copy for my own daughter. I re-read the book, and this happened to be soon after the death of a very important family member. The book explores death and how it affects a family in a very positive way. I found it actually helped me deal with my own grief - not something I expected when I started to read it.

As a child, I adored this book. As an adult, I have an even greater respect for the philosophies in it.

I can see now, from the perspective of a few years, that this book really did help me develop my own spiritual beliefs and understandings. It's a very meaty story, but don't let that deter you. It's easy to read, enjoyable, with engaging characters.

Madeleine L'Engle is one of the best!
