review A Wrinkle in Time ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free And our universeWinner of the 1963 Newbery Medal A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in Madeleine L'Engle's classic Time uinte. Anybody else read it with this coverI did 1986 I was in 6th grade and it was assigned to us by our teacher This book changed my world Or at least my reading world Welcome to sci fi kidI have no idea how many times I ve read this story but as a child I read it so much that this awesome cover eventually fell off So many great memories of these characters and easily my favorite childhood novelAfter doing a re read of it this year I have to say it holds up pretty well for a book that was written in 1962 One of the things that helps it age so decently is that L Engle didn t have much in it that could age it No brand names no popular trends no references to any politics of the day The only stuff that really let you know you were reading a book written in the 60 s were Calvin saying things like Golly unironically or Charles Wallace being disrespectful by calling his father Pops snickersIt s a very simple story that I read in just under 2 hours but I remember it being complex enough when I was younger I think it hits all the right points for a kid who feels out of place and weird and didn t we all feel out of place an weird at that ageYes Yes we didThe only thing I was less excited about this time around were all the religious references but the book is what it is and you just kind of have to accept that God is a big theme in this and move on if you want to enjoy it It s not too preachy so there s thatWill kids today like it I m trying to get mine to read it now so ask me again in 6 monthsBut I d been putting off re reading this thing for 20 plus years and was pleasantly surprised that it was still such a charming storyHighly Recommendedfor nostalgia

review A Wrinkle in Time ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free 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. First understand that I am editing this review after several outraged responses I knew that Wrinkle was considered to be a classic but I was unaware that it was considered a Beloved Classic Beyond Criticism I read this in grade school and just REread it aloud to my daughter I didn t have a clear memory of it though I remember that I loved the way it started Now I realize why I forgot so much of it I STILL love the first 3 chapters and dislike the rest But since some of you found and WILL find I m sure my review to be judgmental harsh and undiplomatic a review IS a critiue right to the point of insulting I thought I d do a little research look over the book again think about it some So I ve edited this review But I find I just can t retract my statements They are my opinion that s all and I haven t changed my mind I can only try to be open minded be honest and try to explain my thoughts feelings clearly Otherwise I d be a simpering fakeLike CS Lewis books especially the last of his Chronicles of Narnia The Last Battle A Wrinkle In Time has strong heavy handed I think overtones of Christian doctrine I m not anti spiritual but I have a personal discomfort with this kind of religious doctrine You many not and that s fine But than that issue the book is an odd combination of intelligent hard science interesting uantum science that is brushed over and uotes from the bible At least there are a few respectful mentions of other spiritual leaders from other cultures and moral messages from classic literature and philosophers I understand this combination garnered criticism from both religious fundamentalists as well as atheists and secular society L Engle has earned my respect for taking on the difficult and controversial marriage of science and religion She has also earned my criticism for raising this issue and then failing to really grapple with it It s treated lightly as though it s a natural thing that should be easy to accept in spite of the many holes and inconsistencies in her story I wouldn t even mind except that this book takes itself SO seriously It s easy to imagine that a school teacher might use this book to demonstrate that Evolutionist Theory and Creationism can be combined but I find science and religion to have a disjointed and uneasy coexistence in this book One is always dropped abruptly for the other Or at least it seems so to me Ok Now that I have tackled that big one let s move on I found the characters rather flat the genius child the misfit girl the beautiful genius scientist mother who nonetheless stays home and cooks stew in bunsen burners while her husband has adventures The story itself is made up of vague scenarios of conflict of the psyche and spirit with the entire Universe at stake L Engle s metaphors are obvious and their manifestations flat SPOILER ALERT There is a uest to fight a Darkness oooh that wants to rid us all of individuality free will There are 3 beings who used to be stars before they died in the fight with the Darkness and became something beyond our comprehension They can appear in any form to us so that we have some way of processing their existence They are in fact so beyond anything knowable that I can t feel much for them or say much about them except that they make a convenient plot device for transporting the characters throughout the Universe and the story Anyway the Darkness takes over a planet which turns into a kind of sci fi beehive with brainwashed automatons I found the planet to be delightfully creepy and would have liked to know about it even if it seems suspiciously like a thinly veiled anti communist warning message So guess what s doing the brainwashing a giant evil disembodied brain called IT who is personally responsible for spreading the Darkness across the Universe Really A brain Doesn t anyone else find this simplistic and cliche The main character defeats this brain by gushing love I am uite sure that many many readers were moved to tears by Meg s gushing but I do not happen to be that kind of person Before Meg realizes that she has the power to gush love the crusaders tesser through time and space no explanation of how the father can do this to a fascinating planet with very interesting aliens who can t see but have other senses I d have loved to know about their society and these mysterious other senses but again these ideas aren t very developedThese are the things in this book and in L Engle s writing that I love As I mentioned I love her courage in at least attempting a controversial issue like mixing science and spirituality I love that this book has the heart to recognize love as the greatest power and that it has the wisdom to recognize fear as one of the biggest weapons I love that individuality prevails and the romantic in me approves of the loving whole family I love that she has enough respect for children that she included difficult vocabulary and a few difficult concepts Many children are far capable of handling complex ideas than we give them credit for especially if we expose them to these things early on I love that L Engle doesn t underestimate them in this way at least initially on the surface Since my biggest problems with this book all involve my finding it simplistic naive and certain parts of it cliche obvious I wonder if I need to remind myself that it s meant for children Perhaps children should be idealistic or even naive in the way that this book is But then I wonder if that is another way of underestimating them ESPECIALLY since I felt exactly the same way when I read this book as a childWind In The Willows makes me feel closer to God or a creative power though there s some gushing in there too at the end The Jungle Book explores social constructs and morals deeply and naturally for me A Sound Of Thunder blew my mind in grade school with its butterfly effect theory of the power and responsibility of each individual All of these are childrens books though they span generations and time and space gracefully than tessering did for me I could name so many But if A Wrinkle In Time opened your mind to new ideas instead of making you feel frustrated by light treatment of them made you uestion some latent prejudice instead of feeling bored by obvious metaphors lifted your spirits made you cheer for bookish outcasts instead of feeling that no one is that one dimensional or cry for the love of a big sister little brother instead of cringing when a version of I love you Charles Wallace appears 19 times in 2 pages then it is a wonderful book For you
