A Wrinkle in Time leads the reader into the world of advanced mathematics and programmed life. Rescuing their missing father, partly because he must be rescued and partly to stop the rumors that he has run off with another woman, is critically important. To say more would be to create a spoiler, so I will stop now.
As usual, L'Engle is religious without being preachy.
This is the first in L'Engle's "science fiction" trilogy, although the book goes far beyond what we normally think of as science fiction. it also goes beyond its billing as a children's novel. L'Engle has stated that she doesn't direct her writing at a specific audience and I believe her. Although the main characters in the book range from adolescent Meg Wallace to her pre-school-aged brother, Charles, adults will find much to pique their curiosity. And to add spice to the mix, the other-worldly Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Whatsit appear, blown in from where-we-do-not-know. The plot eventually develops into a futuristic orwellian-type mind-control situation where the children struggle against the evil forces that seek to control them in order to free their father. The "method of their warfare" however, is unique and the ending provides a soul-refreshing Truth.
Wow, this book rocked my world when I was just a kid! It's tale of children being transported to a magical distant world, where they battle the evil "IT" and attemtp to rescue their father, still gets me excited when I think about it. Did you love this book when you were young too? What others did you ...
