    the book that first inspired me to tentatively pick up my pencil and my marbled black-and-white composition notebook (remember those?) and write (in 4th grade). the influence l'engle herself and her work have had on my life cannot be understated. i met her many many years later, during...

    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 sc...

    Am I the first living 64 year old who had never read this book- until now - March, 2017. that is? Random Thoughts .... .....I was surprised to discover this story was about a little GIRL --not a WIZARD. .....I was more surprised that Meg, 13 years old, had three other siblings...

    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 d...

    I have one general, self-imposed rule about reviewing on this site: I write about the books I've read in the order I've finished them. By that logic, I should be cobbling together my reaction to Hunger right now but I am so taken by this childhood staple that there's no room in my brai...

    [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 lac...

    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 ...

    I just finished reading this for the first time since, maybe college? Twelve year old Meg Murry, her precocious five year old brother Charles Wallace, and their new friend Calvin meet some highly odd beings who call themselves Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which. This strange, quirky...
