A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle

This is my first time reading this book. It was a decent read. I liked Meg at the beginning, but she got on my last nerve with her constant shouting/crying statements that always end with an ! There was so much !!!!!! in the second half of the book its a wonder Meg didn't lose her voice. I loved Charles Wallace and Calvin - from their first conversation straight to the end. I don't understand why the twins were even mentioned, they didn't do anything in the book. The three witches were great, but I don't think we needed to have each line of Ms. Which having toooo bbbbbbbeeeeee ssssssoooooooommmmmeeeeetttthhhiiiiiinnnnggg that looks like that.

 

The religious tone of the book got heavy-handed in some parts, and owing to when the book was published, seem like another way to show how different Americans Earthlings were than the Soviets  people of Camazotz. 

 

Absolute favorite part of the book was when Meg understands that "Like" and "Equal" are not the same thing - I need to cross stitch that on a pillow! Overall though I am glad I read the book and will encourage my kids to read it when they are ready.
