  • A long overdue check off my to-read list: A Wrinkle in Time

    Jul 12, 2006 by dramastef is a Lead on Epinions in Books
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Engaging story, well-written, wonderfully flawed characters
    Cons: None

    Summary: For the past month or so I have found myself reverting to an escape mechanism I discovered when I was much, much younger: reading. Not just reading, but reading each night until the words start playing games with me. While this has added a ... read more

    Pros: great story line, prefect for any age group.
    Cons: none.

    Summary: I decided to read A Wrinkle In Time again, the first time being when I was 8 or 9, now I am 30.   Even though I am several years older this book is still a wonderful read.  Its the story of three young children, Charles Wallace, his sister Meg ... read more

    Pros: speaks volumes about who we are and why, and the meaning of family
    Cons: Child should be a proficient reader before attempting this book

    Summary: People in Meg's town have strong opinions about her family. Meg's mother is brilliant as a scientist, but deluded that her husband is coming back. They all say he ran off and abandoned his family. And no wonder, his daughter Meg is dull witted and ... read more

  • Why Did I Wait So Long to Read A Wrinkle in Time?

    Feb 1, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well developed characters, strong plot
    Cons: none

    Summary: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is a book I somehow missed as a child and thoroughly enjoyed reading as an adult. While it deals with travel through space and time by moving through the fifth dimension, I can not truly call this a ... read more

  • Am I the only one who does not find this book great?

    Feb 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy read, quick, imaginative
    Cons: The ending

    Summary: It seems as if I am the only one who doesn't find this book to be a great literary work. The book was okay, I'll tell you, not being the best or the worst. But it definitely did not live up to any of the hype I had heard about it. ... read more

  • A journey to Camazotz

    Oct 11, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Optimistic, hopeful yarn with stirring emotional focus and fantastic content.
    Cons: Inaccurate physics, optimism can border on corniness at time.

    Summary: _A Wrinkle in Time_ is one of the best examples of juvenile fiction on the market today. Predating the Harry Potter juggernaut, L'Engle managed to write a series of short novels that hooked readers both young and old. This novel tells a fantastic, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great imaginative fantasy, vivid imagery, good allegory
    Cons: no major cons

    Summary: Flying centaurs, good versus evil, aliens, mind control, hate, and love--all are part of one of the greatest children's books ever written. Madeleine L'Engle weaved a spell-binding tale in The Wrinkle in Time. It was one of her first fantasy books, and ... read more

    Pros: powerful message of hope and faith
    Cons: endangered by the narrow minded and ignorant
