Madeleine L’Engle, “A Wrinkle in Time”

I remember a teacher recommending Madeleine L’Engle to me, but I don’t remember ever reading this book before, which is strange, because I usually remember the plots of all books I read.

Published: 1994, 182 pp.
Obtained via: Side of the road
Date started: 4.13.07
Date finished: 4.17.07
What I liked: The fact that the protagonist is female and three-dimensional, and the intergalactic dystopia!
What I didn’t like: No complaints.
What I learned: I’ve got to check out the remaining books in the miniseries, and I need to give my 12-year-old self a kick in the butt.
Unresolved question: What will it take to defeat the Dark Thing for once and for all?

    Right on! I’ve been meaning to re-read this book (even though I don’t remember a thing about it; I must have read it 15 years ago). I’m going to go place it on hold at the library pronto.

    My favorite book for grades 2-5; an aunt had given it to me as it had been hers, as well. The rest of the books in the series are quite good as well, though none match the original. It gets even more… “out there.” I remain surprised that such was written for kids, but hey, I loved it.

Got anything to add?
