A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time characters Õ 9 review A Wrinkle in Time Rles Wallace and their friend Calvin O'Keefe on a most dangerous and extraordinary adventure one that will threaten their lives. The story takes about 100 pages of tedious banal dialogue to get to the point where you are told that this is a battle against Evil and all you need is love But everything is so oversimplified so sketchy everything is reduced to big words like IT and evil This IT also called the Dark Thing is striving to create a communist type society where everyone conforms down to the little children who bounce their balls in uniform rhythms and who live in cutter box houses I liked Meg in the beginning she was a believable character filled with her own problems and I really wanted for things to work out for her But when she went on her journey and especially since she got to that dreadful communist planet she got hysterical She did not say anything for half of the book she yelled gasped screamed cried etc She got ticked off at everyone for everythingThen there might have been an indication that Charles Wallace was going to be a player but he fizzled There are constant references to him being special but we never find out what was so special about him besides putting a 30 year old into a 4 year old body and calling it genius There was all this build up for the confrontation between him and IT but nothing happened He looked at the guy let him in and became filled with ideas from Lenin himselfThen there are worlds These characters traveled to a planet that was described in three lines with beautiful flowers and a tall mountain Then another planet is not described at all except to say that it was a winter wonderland type of a place The residence of the Happy Medium was another planet where they were conveniently in a cave and final stop was in a planet that was probably like Earth except all we know about it is that it had rows of houses and tall buildings There you have it traveled all through the known Universe and have nothing to show for it No imagination to describe and develop a worldThen there are bizarre references to gods that come out of nowhere or in the oddest places and disappear into nowhere Characters are underdeveloped scenes are not finished worlds are left to themselves theme is the fear of religious right of the communist leftIt s a caricature of evil done perhaps in the belief that kids won t get it otherwise There s not much in terms of a plot the worlds described are paper thin and it shows no historical understanding no outside knowledgeMore of Purplycookie s Reviews Book Details Title A Wrinkle in Time Time 1Author Madeleine L EngleReviewed By Purplycookie

A Wrinkle in Time characters Õ 9 review A Wrinkle in Time It was a dark and stormy nightOut of this wild night a strange visitor comes to the Murry house and beckons Meg her brother Cha. So 41 of my goodreads friends have read A Wrinkle in Time but I never picked up the book until these past few weeks I m not sure how this novel and I slipped past each other in my youth I m guessing that since the main character was a girl I wasn t that interested in middle school and when I grew older the science fiction elements didn t appear strong enough to snag my interest Oh well Last weekend I bought A Wrinkle in Time at a Borders near the Seattle airport I wanted the novel to get me through the grueling twelve hour journey whoo flight delays and pre dawn connecting flights home and I thank Ms L Engle for the perfect story for early hour near hallucinatory reading in the middle of the Minneapolis International promenadeWhat makes this book so good First off A Wrinkle in Time works under the assumption that kids are smart enough either to grasp the nuances of some fairly deep physics or if they don t get every detail they ll flow with the storyline anyway One woman I know said I didn t understand all the science when I was a kid but I still loved it That makes sense to me Hell I didn t understand all the science now and I m supposedly a grown up L Engle doesn t just say And then they traveled time She tries to explain how time travel might work I wonder if so many kids especially girls liked this novel because they felt L Engle respected them as intelligent readersSecond A Wrinkle in Time frames Meg s personality as multi faceted and complex than just about any I ve encountered in YA literature In fact reading this novel I couldn t help but consider her a template on which some modern coming of age characters think Harry Potter were modeled She s brave but doubts her own strength in an tangible authentic manner And her relationship with Calvin is sweet without getting all High School Musical Third the evil in this novel is damn scary and the darkness pure and substantial We re talking elemental unadulterated evil that manifests itself in the fear and conformity of those who break down in its presence And the characters encounters with this evil feel real The climatic scenes are perhaps slightly too swift but the nuances of the battle fit well with a remarkably philosophical and Christian but in a positive way resolution of good and evil s conflict If my friends reviews are any indication a lot of smart girls who turned into strong intelligent women grew up under the spell of A Wrinkle in Time I feel like I know them a little better after reading this novel and I can see them all around age ten turning the book s pages in their rooms feeling their own strength and potential And that s damn cool really don t you think a whole generation of girls reading A Wrinkle in Time Maybe little girls across America are googling tesseract as we speak

A Wrinkle in Time characters Õ 9 review A Wrinkle in Time And our universeWinner of the 1963 Newbery Medal A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in Madeleine L'Engle's classic Time uinte. Later note Had discussion with author about this book and why it means so much to so many people specifically women Also read excellent NYTimes piece about the fiftieth anniversary Some books are powerful for their readers because of their context in this case the utter lack in popular kid s literature of 1962 of characters like Meg real girls who cared about atypical subjects like math who were unashamed to be other than pink wearing cheerleaders To find a powerful role model in a novel must be a wonderful thing especially for bookish girls And maybe it makes sense that as a boy in the seventies I missed that entirely Still rereading as an adult I found it unbearably heavy handed Hence the two star rating It was okayOne of those overrated books the response to which defies explanation Clunky heavy handed and as obvious in its way as The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe I was only ever able to force myself through this as an adult having been turned off of it by a filmstrip I saw in school and no doubt this is the sort of novel like the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs that must be first loved as a younger reader Ugh
