A Wrinkle in Time
A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger."Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal.

I had never read this book in my youth for some reason & I threw it into my May mix for a Kindle reading challenge prompt. It was just OK for me—I found the story convoluted, the dialogue wooden & there was a bit too much of a push on religion for my taste & Meg got on my nerves. Will I someday read the next book(s)? Maybe. On the plus side, it was a quick read & I am happy to have ticked it off my list.🤷🏻‍♀️

I‘m sorry to say that this book didn‘t hook me the way I expected it to. I can appreciate how well it is written and the potential impact it would have for young readers, but I kept getting shared by the “issues.” Maybe you should read it when you‘re young?

In elementary school, I was in the lower reading levels and never had the opportunity to read this book. 20 years later, and I have finally gotten around to reading it. This book is just plain timeless. It is so incredibly well written. The characters are beautiful in their own unique ways. And I really appreciated the themes of love and family. Sad that the darkness is still relevant today… but definitely well worth the read!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨(4.5/5)

dabbe As a teacher, I find your 1st sentence completely 💔. What on earth do we do to kids? No wonder some walk away from elementary school hating to read. In the 70s we had book kits with birds. That's where the “I'm a bluebird reader“ (I think) came from. They were the best readers. Nobody wanted to be the sparrow reader. Seriously shameful. #offmysoapbox. Glad you finally read it and loved it. ❣️ 1y

Like: the mix of sci-fi, fantasy, (gentle) horror. Dislike: the overall simplicity of the plot, the completely anticlimactic ending. It‘s okay.

Reading location: the beach.

I don‘t get it. Couldn‘t follow it. I just couldn‘t envision what was written so I‘ll watch the movie sometime. It didn‘t make sense. Do I need to read all the others for it to make sense? It‘s supposed to have Christian overtones; at first it seemed to be the exact opposite then … nek minnit … guardian angels and bible verses? The characters were so bland. I‘m sorry, just couldn‘t with this. Sorry if it‘s your favourite book. Maybe it‘s me.

This is a great story for autumn with its beautiful prose about that season. It has some really weird Christian references that I didn‘t really see adding to the story (the story would be just as good without them) and possibly even detracting from it a bit. This is quite an adventure that is certainly worth the time. I love that the same groups that went after this book also burned the Harry Potter books.

TheBookHippie The whole series as a child was magical for me. 3y
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I‘m still sort of on the fence about continuing the series. The book was really good, but it feels very complete for me. I‘d hate to end up hating where it goes. 3y

GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I feel like I spend half my life shouting from the roof tops. Kids aren‘t stupid, they‘re just short. They tend to gravitate toward books, movies, and shows that present life realistically. Those also tend to be the books that get banned, sadly. 3y
kspenmoll @TheBookHippie This author was magical for me too. I did read the series, but this first was my favorite. I did reread this a few years ago & still enjoyed it. I should try & reread some of the others in the series because I remember so little! @GingerAntics 3y
kspenmoll @GingerAntics Love your “ Kids aren‘t stupid, they‘re just short.” Was talking with some HS students today & they were amazed at some of the titles of “banned books.” What a great job I have - I get to talk about books!!! 3y
TheBookHippie @kspenmoll I‘m thinking a reread may be in order for me. 3y
GingerAntics @kspenmoll I talked about banned books with my high school students every year and the vast majority of them didn‘t even know books could be banned. Inevitably, someone always asks “isn‘t this unconstitutional?” I‘ve even done it with college freshmen and sophomores, same reaction. They‘re so interested and rightfully outraged. I love it!!! 3y

I saw the film first and never read this as a kid. I wouldn't have seen myself so much at Meg's or Calvin's age but as an adult, I cried quite a bit. This was super sci fi for me and I'm not sure I can even properly explain what happened! Ultimately, all you need is love. ❤ Love is all you need.

So much has been said about this book that it‘s hard to add much. I didn‘t know about this book as a kid (why?!) but I could see how it would foster a love of reading. I teared up at the end, it came together so quickly but so powerfully. I will be continuing the series!

282Mikado Your review made me think of back when I first read THE OUTSIDERS and THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW way back in the early 70's. Two books that absolutely had a large part in fostering my love of reading. Perhaps they require a reread; along with a read of A WRINKLE IN TIME. Thanks for the memories. 👍 3y

1. 9/11 was the first major event in my lifetime. I was only 9 and didn't quite understand what happened but I knew it was significant.

2. Library - I get a ton of my books from Libby and hoopla

3. There were plenty of children's books when I was little but the first book that I remember absolutely loving was A Wrinkle in Time. We were reading it in school a little at a time but I read ahead and finished it way early

What a delightful little inter- planetary adventure ! Although it's childrens' science fiction, it is profound in many places. It makes us imagine that if the human species degenerates, our planet could become like Camazotz , and if human conciousness evolves what earth could become with love and understanding.
I liked the character of Meg, who is so strong and assertive. Going for the movie next😊
