  • A Wrinkle In Time

    A fiction book for kids that cater to all age group. A story about the real world and fantasy. The story touches on Science, time travel, Universe, Literature, Languages, family, Angels, Religion and love. A must read! I heard the graphic novel version makes a good addition to one's book collection.

    I thought that 'A Wrinkle in Time' was a very good ebook and that it is a great book for ages 10- 13. I learned a few things from this book. I thought that it was a very fascinating book. It is definitely a book that you won't want to put down. So be prepared to stay up late in the night!

  • Fantastic

    This is a book that I reread every once in a while. Because of all the movie hype I'm going to re-read this before going to see the movie. Well, that was an interesting read. Each time I reread this weird things always strike me. Wow it's such a short book. Wait, what happened? The book is over? It seems lopsided, like the beginning was marching along and then all of a sudden - like L'Engle had to go to the bathroom, poof she scribbles down the ending. Sometimes all the symbolism and allegories hit me front and center and I resent them being rammed down my throat and other times I can glide over them or "tesseract" through them to reach the other side of the story. This reading was informed by the movie (or at least all the trailers, I have yet to see the movie). I had always imagined myself as Meg. Not so much this time. On this reading, it was hard to think of the Mrs.' without thinking of Oprah, Reese and Mindy. It was easier to get rid of Reese and Mindy, but Oprah was speaking those lines in her booming voice throughout this read. That is sometime the problem with movies. It takes stuffed you've enjoyed imagining away and replaces it with a concrete image. Still I was so impressed with the diversity of the cast, the beautiful images I had seen from the trailers it lightly peppered the reading. So, for anyone left on the planet that doesn't know the story, this is the story of a young girl named Meg. Meg is an outsider. She doesn't fit in at school, is impatient, speaks her mind and loves very hard. Meg loves her family foremost. She loves her mother and her twin siblings who seem to fit in so easily. She fiercely loves her youngest brother, Charles Wallace, who is special in his own right. He has the reputation of being odd, dumb and most people don't even think he has the ablilty to speak. The fact is he communicates on a different level. He can read people, especially Meg and always knows when she is troubled and needs him the most. Both of Meg's parents are scientists. Her father has been missing for a few years, away on some super secret mission. The town believes that he has run off to have an affair with another woman. Through Charles Wallace we are introduced to the first of the three Mrs' characters. Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which are three guides that help Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin, a local boy whom they befriend for the journey to find Meg's father. Meg's father is trapped fighting It, an evil Black Thing. Learning how to fight against It and saving her family teaches Meg the important values, qualities and traits that are important in life. She learns to rely on herself and realizes that she has more than enough skills to be enough to face any challenge that she may have to face. This book is a fantasy. We get to explore new worlds, travel to different planets where being two dimensional is a way of life! We meet a star who becomes a centaur and beautiful yet terrifying creatures that can heal but are so different we don’t even have the language to describe how. We get to come face to face with what it would mean to throw in the towel. Let someone else be responsible for all the problems. What about what it would be like to just be the same as everyone, I mean we all want to fit in. Well, it’s not a pretty picture. Of course, I still love this book. I can forgive its strong Christian overtones, but wish it was more open ended to allow for all beliefs. I'll just like to remain focused on the overall messages. I also am in love with Meg and her family. She is of course perfectly flawed as we all are and don't we all wish we had a mother that made stew on a Bunsen burner! The relationship between all the siblings is special but of course having a brother who gets you and whom you would do anything for beats it all. Meg's parents are deeply in love and even without hearing from her husband for a long time and hearing all the gossip from the neighbours, the mother is loyal and confident in her husband's love. Calvin's fierce loyalty and protectiveness to Meg is sweet. The battle between good and evil, celebrating your individuality and love triumphing all still makes a great read and why this will always remain a timeless classic.
