I reread a childhood favorite in one night. Who can forget the cozy Murry kitchen, the way science and religion are valued equally, tesseracts and planet adventures. If a book can be a warm blanket, this is mine.

When I as young, I loved Meg because I felt as awkward as her, and also as unable to grasp a boy ever liking me the way Calvin just does. But I also had those weird insights in ways not quite as dramatic as Charles Wallace, so I was all of those kids. And my Dad worked all the time, mayb

I asked my Reading May Experience class to revisit a childhood favorite, and when I decided to play along, this book is the one I couldn't get out of my head. The trouble is, I had not reread the book as an adult. I was terrified it wouldn't hold up, that I would be disappointed, but I did not need to worry so much. Going back to a book I read so many times as a child was like walking into my childhood home or singing Christmas carols - they're so ingrained, so familiar, I can see all the parts ...more

More than the Chronicles of Narnia, these books were central to my childhood. (I can't believe I never rated them here). I used to read A Wrinkle in Time at least once a year.

I stand by my earlier statement; this book was written by a Christian tripping acid. It wasn't terrible, but there's no way I'm reading the rest of the series.

I started this a few weeks ago. I would say it is fantasy, not science fiction. I might have liked it when I was ten years old but now I find it quite uninteresting. I gave up on it.
