I decided to reread A Wrinkle in Time again because I am also going to reread the remainder of the Murry/O'Keefe series and I am one of those people who needs to begin at the beginning. I don't have anything to add to this review, except that I remain in awe of Madeleine L'Engle's extraordinary huma...

I'm on the wrong side of history here, but I didn't enjoy 'A Wrinkle in Time'. I'd read it before (at too old of an age) but had forgotten everything except the back garden and an alien planet.Meg Murray and Calvin are great characters, but there didn't seem to be enough of a story for them to move ...

I'd passed on from middle school by then. I just got overwhelmed by all the buzz regarding the movie that's recently come out a...

You can't go home againI still remember watching E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in the theater as a kid. The nearest movie theater was an hour’s drive from our little town in the Deep Midwest, so we didn’t get to go more than a few times a year. I’d been begging my parents to take us to see E.T. for wee...

A Scottish-Canadian Blethering On About Books
This is a book I might have grown very attached to if I’d read it at nine or ten years of age. In those days, I would have glommed on to the brainy Daddy’s-girl main character and enjoyed the vaguely mythical shape of the story (3-Fates-like grandma figures and all), despite the fact that the book’s...

This is my first time reading this book. It was a decent read. I liked Meg at the beginning, but she got on my last nerve with her constant shouting/crying statements that always end with an ! There was so much !!!!!! in the second half of the book its a wonder Meg didn't lose her voice. I loved Cha...

Last weekend, the movie adaptation for A Wrinkle in Time was released in theaters here in America. And after hearing about the great representation it contained, I wanted to go see it and support the film on opening weekend. However, I am a person who loves to read the book first before watching the...
