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 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 college when she was well into her 80s but she was exactly as i pictured her spirited engaging challenging when i very nervously and shyly told her that she gave me my first inspiration to write she looked me in the eyes and with a genuineness in her tone i can't describe thanked me i gave her my book to be autographed she signed in it an handed it back to me as i walked away i read her inscription which said with love and a flourish ananda i admit it i had to look it up to find out what it meant and when i did my respect for her grew even deeper i won't get into the entire background of the wordname here you can google it yourself ananda means bliss or joy it was so perfect i nearly cried an amazing book and an amazing woman

Epub A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in TimeRles Wallace and their friend Calvin O'Keefe on a most dangerous and extraordinary adventure one that will threaten their lives 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 the Dark Thing is striving to create a communist type society where everyone conforms down to the little children who bounce their balls in uniform rhythms and who live in cutter box houses I liked Meg in the beginning she was a believable character filled with her own problems and I really wanted for things to work out for her But when she went on her journey and especially since she got to that dreadful communist planet she got hysterical She did not “say” anything for half of the book she yelled gasped screamed cried etc She got ticked off at everyone for everythingThen there might have been an indication that Charles Wallace was going to be a player but he fizzled There are constant references to him being special but we never find out what was so special about him besides putting a 30 year old into a 4 year old body and calling it “genius” There was all this build up for the confrontation between him and IT but nothing happened He looked at the guy let him in and became filled with ideas from Lenin himselfThen there are worlds These characters traveled to a planet that was described in three lines with beautiful flowers and a tall mountain Then another planet is not described at all except to say that it was a winter wonderland type of a place The residence of the Happy Medium was another planet where they were conveniently in a cave and final stop was in a planet that was probably like Earth except all we know about it is that it had rows of houses and tall buildings There you have it traveled all through the known Universe and have nothing to show for it No imagination to describe and develop a worldThen there are bizarre references to gods that come out of nowhere or in the oddest places and disappear into nowhere Characters are underdeveloped; scenes are not finished; worlds are left to themselves; theme is the fear of religious right of the communist leftIt's a caricature of evil done perhaps in the belief that kids won't get it otherwise There's not much in terms of a plot the worlds described are paper thin and it shows no historical understanding no outside knowledgeMore of Purplycookie’s Reviews Book Details Title A Wrinkle in Time Time #1Author Madeleine L'EngleReviewed By Purplycookie
