Reviews for Wrinkle in Time

BookPage Reviews 1998 May
Surely, we've had a time warp, or can it be 35 years since the publication of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time? Rejected by many publishers as too complex, this 1962 Newbery Award winner continues to fire the imaginations of children with its beloved characters and strong scientific theme. The story of Meg Murry and her little brother Charles Wallace, who battle Evil to save their scientist father from a giant pulsating brain, is perhaps less fantastic and more timely as computers gain larger roles in our lives. Look for a major resurgence of interest in this title, and the Time Quartet series it spawned, as we approach 2000. 1998 is also a big birthday year for Madeleine L'Engle. At age 80, she's still going strong, writing for both children and adults. Readers will enjoy the new introduction she has written for A Wrinkle in Time, reflecting on it's 35th anniversary. Happy birthday, dear book and dear author. Copyright 1998 BookPage Reviews
