Reviews - What do customers think about The Door in the Wall?

A quiet but powerful allegory  Apr 1, 2008
The protagonist, a thoroughly spoiled youth named Robin, is rendered lame by a disease. Mercifully, and mysteriously enough, a monk comes to his abandoned home, picks him up and brings Robin to a monastery. At this gentle place, as the monk guides him, Robin learns self-discipline and many kinds of practical skills. It is a redemption, though Robin's spirit is still broken about his lame legs.

A wartime crisis comes about and Robin is the only one who can deliver vital information to his father, a lord in service to the king (Robin's mother also serves at the court.)

Robin is successful and this success brings about transformational healing of his spirit. His father's tremendous pride in him brings Robin much joy, and the comfort of his mother is yet another blessing.

The illness - our sin that renders us lame
Rehabilitation in spite of, or by use of, some permanent wound -- redemption and training for spiritual service to God and to other people
Robin's wartime task -- Service, service that brings God much joy

The mood of this book is joyful and gently reverent. Robin's story is one of woundedness and redemption. The illustrations greatly further this story's themes. A short, worthwile read, best given to late elementary or early junior high students, and especially best for adults. The young ones may not pick up on the greater themes, but the dignity and respect communicated in this book are well worth their time.
Great Topic Book for home schooling  Mar 24, 2008
This book was loved by the whole family, a great story about the middle ages. Easy to read but full of complexity that can be a jumping off point for a lesson.
audio books  Feb 23, 2008
These audio books help children that are having trouble with the written word. I also use them in the car, so each trip we hear more of the story. The kids love them and I think it makes them interested in reading.
Don't remember  Sep 14, 2007
unfortunately i don't remember much of this book...I think the style of writing was dry. Or perhaps it was the subject matter.
I'm sorry for having such a negative comment but after reading this book, I thought, "WHY WOULD ANYONE WANNA READ THIS?" My mind began wandering off after reading just the 2nd page. I certainly do not believe that this book is for children younger than 12, especially if you have no historical knowledge of the background of this story. I think that adults would enjoy this book much more than a child or a student. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

I think that the main reason I did not enjoy this book was the way that Marguerite de Angeli worded or wrote this book, such as the way that she used the terms, 'twill and thee. Who uses those words anymore?
