Book review A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L‚ÄôEngle
I’m not keeping up with my “book a week” reading schedule. ¬†Since arriving in the USA there has been a lot less reading. ¬†No Scrabble games. And fewer relaxing moments.
But it’s just as we expected it to be, and I am reading when I can. ¬†This week I finished Madeleine L’Engle’s classic children’s novel A Wrinkle in Time.
On Father’s Day both my boys saw¬†me reading this book. ¬†I told them I had never read it before and they were both surprised. ¬†They remember the book from their childhood, but I’m sure we did not have it in our collection so they must have read it in school.
This classic novel written in 1962 wear’s its age well. ¬†The recently released Disney film A Wrinkle in Time brings the tale more into modern-day. ¬†I’d be curious to see how they changed the story to make that work…iphone’s perhaps?
A Wrinkle in Time is the fantastical story that combines childhood fantasy with science fiction. ¬†It’s a tale like many other beloved children’s works that includes an evil and magical side that is overcome, in the end, with the greatest force in the world – love.
A precursor to Harry Potter (and not nearly as involved) the story of Meg and her incredible family also reminded me of many other of my favorite childhood books such as the Narnia series, The Giver and even Bedknobs and Broomsticks. ¬†Each of these have the similar theme; overcoming the darkness in our lives and pursuing honor and love.
A beautiful, easy to read classic for any age. ¬†Four stars for A Wrinkle in Time. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
