This is a great book for middle schoolers. I am reading it with my child. Great imagery. Excellent book to teach figurative language and a fun read. My child asks for our reading time together. If you start reading early with your child, they never get to old for it. He loves, even at 12, for you read a chapter, I read a chapter every night time. This has led to some deep conversations and has increased his ability to read dramatically and fluently.
I encourage all parents to do this. One way or another, this is a great book for graders. Meg and her little brother, Charles, wonder what happened to their father, a scientist working for the government who has been missing for several years. When a strange old lady shows up at their door, the adventure to find him begins.
The old lady and two more of her odd friends lead them out of the universe into the worlds of some strange planets that are under the influence of the horrible, shadowy IT. A Wrinkle in Time is both a sci-fi story and a coming of age story.
Meg, an awkward and insecure girl finds the courage and resourcefulness to overcome IT and save her father and brother. She also learns about the importance of family and love. While the character growth of Meg is nice, at times it seems a little contrived.
One minute she's on the brink of death under the grip of IT, and the next, she's ready to face IT because she knows that it's something only she can do. It's also not very clear why little Charles, who has the vocabulary of a Harvard graduate, is so special. Some of the characters could have benefited from more development. Throughout the story there are references to Christianity: This gives the story a "Chronicles of Narnia" kind of feel.
Hardcover Verified download. I was reading this at night as I recovered from total knee joint replacement surgery. The reason I bought the book was because I want to see the movie when it's available. When I started reading it, I really didn't know what to expect, but I stuck with it to the very end, because the story line and characters were very intriguing.
Now I'm even more curious to see how the movie version of it turned out, which usually doesn't turn out as well. However, the premis of the book and how it all came together in the end was delightful. This is one I'm keeping on my shelf for a later re-read.
Kindle Edition Verified download. Incredibly superficial. As for the plot, there effectively is none. The first three quarters of the book is setup for a climax that never happens. The aspect that bothers me most is how outdated it feels socially. The story pushes the tired "ugly duckling" motif and generally emphasizes the importance of good looks and traditional social standing and relationships, while confusingly claiming that nonconformity is the pinnacle of life and meaning.
I understand that this is colored by the Cold War Communist scare, but the book gives a very strange and dated message.
There are no words for a sublime emotional experience. Suffice it to say that I am so grateful to have been allowed enough time on the planet to do a reread of a childhood favorite from at least a 50 year life time ago perspective. The book instantly connected me to the girl I was and gave me an understanding of why science fiction became my most favorite comfort read for so far all of my life. A Wrinle in Time was my first ever trip into this genre , and what a fantastic trip it was! See all 3, reviews.
