Short and Tweet Review: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Series: Time Quintet #1
Publisher: Square Fish, an imprint of Macmillan
Publication Date: 1962
It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
“Wild nights are my glory,” the unearthly stranger told them. “I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract”.
Meg’s father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space? (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads.)
My friend Kate at Midnight Book Girl has this feature called Short and Tweet Reviews where she reviews books in 140 characters or less, like a tweet. With this book, I didn’t have a lot of things to say, so I thought I’d write a Short and Tweet Review for it.
So here’s my Short and Tweet Review for A Wrinkle in Time:
I would’ve loved this if I’d read it as a kid, but as an adult, I found it ok. At times interesting and creepy, but often hard to visualize.
