Sneaking this one in since I re-read it because of the movie trailer. Childhood favorite. You'll get no objective review from this corner. ( )

Started off slow, but I couldn't stop reading halfway through, so I read it in one day. The ending was slightly lame, but I plan on reading the next one in the series. ( )

Title: A Wrinkle in Time
Author: 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.

Initial thoughts:
This is the second time that I have read this book, but I decided to write a review for it because the movie just came out a little while ago. The first time that I read this was actually a few years back when a professor scolded me for having never read it before (jokingly of course) especially since my concentration was juvenile lit and I find myself drawn to science fiction and fantasy tales. She assigned the book to me for homework and had me write a comparison on it and the graphic novel that had also been released. When I first read it I found that I found myself able to relate with the characters even though the book had been written a long while back.

What I liked:
I really did enjoy the book and loved all of the characters that were presented. Meg seriously was such a powerful character for me and reading this book at an older age really made me wish I had found it when I was much younger (of course back when I was a kid I hated to read an probably wouldn’t have picked it up, but that is old news). The idea that this book is about self love and introduces large scientific concepts like a tesseract really was pretty amazing to me.

Something I also really liked about this book had to do with the differences between Meg and her little brother Charles Wallace. Charles Wallace was a very gifted child. He was very aware that he was smart and enjoyed to challenge his intellect, but that caused him some challenges through the book. While it was Meg’s faults, not her looks or her smarts, that helped her out in the end.

What I didn't like:
The only real reason why this book got a point taken off for me was due to the fact that there is some information that might be hard for a younger audience to understand. Again, I read this book in hopes of introducing it to children at the library I worked at. The concepts can be a little daunting for children of younger ages, but overall I found that things were fairly well explained. Another reason why this is at a lower rating is due to the abrupt ending that is presented in the book. It feels rather out of place unless you go onto the second book right away. If you simply read the first book, which you can and get a fantastic story from, you might be left feeling a bit rushed.

Meg: She is so strong and such a wonderful role model for young readers. Especially female readers. Her insecurities are very relatable even with someone of my own age that I found myself looking back and thinking ‘Yup, I’m just like her’.
Charles Wallace: This boy is too smart for his own good and even when he is warned about it, he decides to test himself at the worst possible time.
Calvin: He was such a sweet character. I felt that he needed more attention throughout the book.
The Mrs’s: They were so cool! They were rather different, but they were so amazing and still tried to understand things even when it was something they might question themselves.
Mr. Murry: He did what he had to do and it might not have felt like the right thing, but he only did what he felt was right for those he loved.
The Happy Medium: I loved her! She was such an interesting character and I found her so intriguing.
Aunt Beast: Was such an amazing character. I think that she was my favorite being so loving even with someone she had never met before and had trouble understanding.
IT: The overall villain within the Book. The IT was a creation that focused on logic rather than on human like emotions and it was interesting to see when something is devoid of feeling how they can prey on the insecurities of others to makes something seem better when it might not be.

This book really was a very amazing and for the time in which it was written, was extremely progressive. The scientific aspect of the book left me floored as I imagined exactly what was being described while understanding the symbolism that came along with it. I highly recommend this book even if you aren’t so much into science fiction. It is a wonderful story centered around the complications that come with listening to your head and your heart. ( )

The first of what became a series of interrelated books, A Wrinkle in Time was considered unprintable when it made the rounds at publishing houses in 1960. A mix of science fiction and fantasy, fable and parable, the religious and the irreligious, it was considered too much for younger audiences and too odd for adult audiences. Finally picked up and published in 1962 by Farrar, Strauss and Cudahy it has defied the opinions of those early editors, and remained in print ever since.

A Wrinkle in Time won the 1963 Newbery Medal. It was adapted into a well received made-for-TV movie in 2003, and a less well received theatrical one in 2018. It has also been adapted as a play and as a graphic novel. It has been cited by the American Library Association as one of the most commonly challenged (i.e. banned) books in the United States both for its religious themes and it's "supernatural" content. It is today considered a classic young adult book.

It's also a book that, sadly, I had never read until now. For whatever reason the book has existed just on the edge of my awareness and interest. But casting about recently for something more fantasy and less hard science fiction I picked it up.

I will also admit that I was influenced by reading this recent article from Mental Floss about the origin of the phrase "It was a dark and stormy night" as a metaphor for bad writing. The author notes that the line "was a well-known trope in 1962, when Madeleine L’Engle co-opted it as the opening line of her classic fantasy novel". Well, I thought, that took courage as a writer, so I had to find out more...

This is the story of Meg Murry, her younger brother Charles Wallace, and their new friend Calvin O'Keefe, all three of whom are pulled into an adventure in search of their missing father. Led by Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Who they encounter memorable characters like the Happy Medium, Aunt Beast and the dreadful IT. It is an adventure through time and space and a battle between the epic forces of good and evil.

There isn't a lot in the story to pin it to a specific decade or time (although when Calvin talks early on in the book a few old fashioned phrases pop out of his mouth). Much of the story seems not to have aged at all, and is as accessible today as it would have been in 1962. But that's not to say that it's an easily accessible book. It has always been known as a story that refuses to talk down to its younger audience, and challenges them with its references to higher level concepts of math and science.

I listened to the audiobook that included both a forward by L'Engle and an Afterward by her granddaughter. The narration was by actress Hope Davis, who did a great job voicing all the characters. So what did I think of my long delayed introduction to the book? It rates Four Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐ from me. If you've never had a chance to pick up this book before, or even if it's been ages since you have it's well worth your time. ( )

"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.”
The middle beast, a tremor of trepidation in his words, said "You aren't from a dark planet, are you?"
