    Sorry The only thing young me would have found of interest here is that the contemporary children visit a post apocalyptic future and luckily encounter the culture descended from East Indians that has eschewed both violence and technology rather than the culture that clings to violence as a way to attempt to cling to a life that includes machines But the book still reads like fantasy than SF with flaws and implausibilities in the predictions of the future And there's too much imo emphasis on family stories explorations of loyalty and friendship but without any real feeling of authenticity or depth That is to say those humanistic themes were only cursorily developedI do have the sense though that there's something I'm missing So I'll round my 25 star rating up to three

    En el siglo XXII los cambios climáticos sufridos por la Tierra han derretido los casquetes polares y alterado la geografía del planeta Todas las ciudades costeras acabaron sepultadas bajo las aguas y lo que antes era Gran Bretaña se convirtió en una isla mucho más pequeña de clima suave y benigno Por otro lado la falta de combustibles fósiles agotados desde mediados del siglo XXI trajo consigo el derrumbe del mundo tal y como lo conocimos y la llegada de una época de barbarie en la que las personas tratan de sobrevivir como pueden de los restos de una tecnología extinta Pero entre esta desolación la naturaleza vuelve a brotar con fuerza y con ella una vuelta a los orígenes y una nueva oportunidad para el ser humano; así surgen comunidades de gente amable totalmente contraria a la violencia que vive en armonía con el mundo y con sus semejantes Este es el futuro que nos plantea la novela En el Círculo del Tiempo de Margaret J Anderson y resulta llamativo porque estamos hablando de un libro escrito hace treinta años pero que ya vaticinaba las grandes preocupaciones de nuestro tiempo Fue publicado en España por la editorial SM en 1986 pero ahora cuando hablamos precisamente de los peligros del cambio climático de la necesidad de buscar energías alternativas o de la paradójica incomunicación y falta de empatía provocada por nuestra tecnológica sociedad globalizada este libro no puede leerse a no ser que encuentres algún ejemplar perdido en una biblioteca o en alguna librería de ocasión porque fue descatalogado hace ya algunos años Sigue leyendo la reseña en ;

    This is volume #2 in a series of three; I read #3 The Mists of Time a couple of weeks ago and have yet to read volume #1 Very obviously I am Just Not Doing It Right To be honest between these two books at least it doesn't matter that I've read them in the wrong order the two are complementary accounts of the same tale In Mists we follow the adventures of future girl Lara Avara as her gentle people who have relocated from Nepal or thereabouts to Scotland after a climate change induced collapse of civilization deal with a local and primitive ie 20th century in their thinking bunch the Barbaric Ones Part of the tale is bound up with the arrival from 1979 or so by time warp of the children Robert and Jennifer Circle is the relevant part of that tale as seen not by Lara Avara but by Robert and Jennifer mainly Robert Just a rehash? I can here you think What a bore In fact the effect was enchanting as bits and pieces of the other story blossomed out giving me a fresh insight into both stories I'm becoming a bit of a Margaret J Anderson fan

    This is one of my favorite books from my childhood I still have the copy my mom bought me through the school book program when I was in elementary school I read it every few years even into my forties Remarkably it is still in decent conditionIt is a short but lovely tale that blends mysticism legend and the delight of discovery It is full of that simple innocent wonder that is too often passed over in today's children's lit I think it is the first book I read where I understood the significance of how we view things differently at different stages in our livesI'm on the hunt for an electronic version to send to a friend This is one book that deserves attention than it has received Ms Anderson thank you so very much for giving us this story
