It's hard to give an objective review of this book, because I mainly read it for the nostalgia factor, and so any opinion I have about the book is clouded with childhood memories. I read the book when I was a kid, back in the late 70's or early 80's. It's always stuck with me as one of those beloved childhood books that I've always wanted to read again. Now, thanks to the ebook revolution, I got my wish. And I was amazed to discover that the plot actually bore little resemblance to how what remembered. The only thing I remembered correctly was the part about the children traveling through time via a circle of standing stones. In my memory, they'd traveled into the past rather than the future. And no, I'm not remembering this book's sequel, In the Keep of Time. Anyway, it was a fun, nostalgic read, kind of like going back to your hometown after thirty years and marveling at how much things have changed, and how different the places were than you remembered.

The great Stones of Arden have also been called the Circle of Time. Stories say that every hundred years they veil themselves in mist and march to the North Sea. At these times, anyone near them becomes lost in the mists of time. Eleven-year-old Robert Guthrie is planning to paint the Stones for his grandfather who used to live near them. His schoolmate, the American Jennifer Crandall, has archaeological leanings and is studying the stones which bear similarities to Stonehenge. Together these two different personalities experience a shift to a time that will be familiar to readers of the Anderson book, "In the Keep of Time".

Robert and Jennifer meet Kartan and Lara Avara and their people who live simply and pacifically. The earth's natural resources are almost gone. People live together more communally and choose their families based on their talents. Kartan is learning to be an artist with his Chosen Ones while Lara chose to live with Vianah from "In the Keep of Time". But the Barbaric Ones want to use the technology that has been lost to them and are willing to use force to get their way. The kids are in constant danger and Robert and Kartan meet Ollie from the previous book when they take refuge in the Keep of Time. Eventually the time quirks clear up and Robert is able to give his grandfather Kartan's painting of the Stones. Robert's grandfather tells a story that reveals that he has also been to Kartan's time with an interesting twist to his story. Also read "The Mists of Time".

Good, but could use some copy editing. I liked how the story dovetailed with "In the Keep of Time".

Two kids find a mini-Stonehenge-like assemblage of rocks and manage to trigger its powers and travel through time. Turns out it's to a post-apocalyptic and very boring future populated by annoyingly pacifistic people who spend their time eating "mealbread" and getting captured by Morlock-reminiscent "Barbaric Ones." There aren't any fun sequences with the time-travelers using their unique experiences to their advantage, nor any satisfying resolutions. The environmental message is lost amidst the stultifying action and characterization or lack thereof.

This is one of my all-time favorite children's books about time travel, a subject that has intrigued me since my earliest memories. I loved reading it when my daughter read it, and I am now reading this with my grandchildren and loving it all over again.

This tale is a must for those of you out there who have always been curious about - and fascinated by - the mystery intimated by the existence of standing stones. Jennifer, an American girl attending school in Scotland, meets up with Robert, a native Scottish boy at the Circle of Arden, a collection of standing stones much like its more famous sibling, Stonehenge. Although they are drawn to this site for very different reasons, the sudden rolling in of a thick mist one grey dawn changes their lives forever. When the mist finally disperses, they find themselves in the future, a world far more "primitive" in some respects than our own, but perhaps more advanced in terms of its values (this you'll have to judge for yourself, but the characters and the issues are well developed and you'll have a lot to think about). The very coastlines have changed and great cities have crumbled to dust. Robert is slightly more prepared for this strange world; he has heard tales in the village of the mists suddenly coming down into the valley, with people mysteriously disappearing every once in a great while. His own mother wandered in among the stones as a small child and was found many hours later, safe, but wrapped in a strange, soft grey cloth. Jennifer is quick-witted and athletic, traits that come in handy when facing the perils of this "brave new world." What must they accomplish there? How are they to return to their own time? The answer to these questions can only be found In the Circle of Time.

This is one of my favorite books from childhood, along with In the Keep of Time, that sparked my imagination. There are too few stories these days that encourage youthful sense of adventure and wanderlust like Margaret Anderson's books did for me as a child.
