Would've enjoyed this one a lot more if I read it when I was a kid. ( )

So happy I finally read this book. A magical and fantastic journey that left me smiling. ( )

It’s always interesting to reread a story you read a lot as a kid. I love Meg more, and I had already loved Meg a metric ton so that’s saying something, but I think I like the writing and most of the other characters less. It’s a little stiff in parts and I continue to find Charles Wallace pretty annoying (maybe I’m supposed to as a big sister). I’m incapable of saying that this isn’t an amazing book but if you didn’t grow up on it, I don’t know if it aged well. ( )

Now I have a gerund for what Cooper was doing at the end of Interstellar: tessering. And like the story of Interstellar, A Wrinkle in Time owes some but not all debt to its 1884 predecessor [b:Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions|433567|Flatland A Romance of Many Dimensions|Edwin A. Abbott|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1435435775s/433567.jpg|4243538]. Unlike the two aforementioned stories, however, this book is unique in that it is a young adult novel that includes a rich tapestry of philosophy, science, geometry, physics, cosmology, math, literature, and even religion--at the end, we encounter Paul's words from several of his epistles, all culminating in the triumph of love presented in 1 Corinthians 13.

The story (originally published in 1962) has now become a fairly stock tale, especially after the huge sci-fi boom in 70s and 80s books and movies--not to mention the current renaissance with offerings such as [b:Ready Player One|9969571|Ready Player One|Ernest Cline|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1406383612s/9969571.jpg|14863741] and Netlix's best original series (that is a fact, not an opinion), Stranger Things. But this is not to fault the book. It is only indicative of the fact that I am reading it in 2016 as a 32-year-old. Yes, I sort of missed this one in my childhood. Sadly, due to the lopsidedness of my youth, I'm sure I turned from it because it was neither Calvin and Hobbes nor a book with a male protagonist.

But while the characters and plot are now as commonplace as the morals--differences are a good thing; our faults can be our strengths: "Yes, it was to her faults that she turned to save herself now" (153); and, ultimately, love conquers all--the book still has enough to maintain its status as a classic of (children's) literature and well justify its John Newbery Medal.

Beginning with the opening sentence, I knew I was in for a treat. Any student of literature knows the history of the sentence "It was a dark and stormy night." This very sentence, from a novel of 1830, has come to represent bad writing--and L'Engle has the audacity to use it as her opening sentence! Right away I knew this was a book written for people like me. L'Engle knows her craft and obviously wants to have fun with the reader. Yes, this is one of those "smart person books," designed to stimulate those who love learning.

And from there we get explanations of mathematics, physics, and geometry worthy of Borges stories, and even Dekker boxes to describe higher dimensions à la [b:Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension|274063|Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension|Rudy v.B. Rucker|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1386921224s/274063.jpg|265741] (published over a decade later, by the way). We get a trio of "witches," one of whom (called Mrs Who) quotes everyone from Dante to Seneca to Pascal to Shakespeare (in the original languages!). She even quotes from [b:Macbeth|8852|Macbeth|William Shakespeare|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1459795224s/8852.jpg|1896522], using one of the very lines from the play's own trio of witches. Well played, L'Engle!

Most likely due to the time during which the book was written, we get a dark planet called Camazotz, which sounds to my ears like both comatose (the inhabitants there are stripped of their identities and asked to just "give in" and "let go" and basically sleep through life) and Communism (the looming spectre of the times). Everyone is the same on Camazotz. Weaklings (i.e. people who are different) are put to death à la Plato's proposal from [b:The Republic|30289|The Republic|Plato|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1386925655s/30289.jpg|1625515] to banish the lesser beings from civilization.

L'Engle is nothing if not a sort of children's Borges, mixing as she does so many areas of thought while still unraveling a coherent and compelling story. At first, I thought I would muster some regret at not having read it in childhood, but the fact that I've managed to experience it in adulthood cancels out the omission. Plus, having read so much other literature that shares this book's themes, I have found further proof of its canonical status. Like, say, [b:The Little Prince|157993|The Little Prince|Antoine de Saint-Exupéry|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1367545443s/157993.jpg|2180358], this book practically lends itself to regular reading throughout one's life.

"The tesseract--" Mrs. Murry whispered. "What did she mean? How could she have known?" [p.27]
Well, the fifth dimension's a tesseract...In other words, to put it into Euclid, or old-fashioned plane geometry, a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points. [p.75]
“Maybe I don’t like being different,” Meg said. “but I don’t want to be like everybody else, either.”
“You mean you’re comparing our lives to a sonnet? A strict form, but freedom within it?”

“Yes.” Mrs. Whatsit said. “You’re given the form, but you have to write the sonnet yourself. What you say is completely up to you.”
