A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016
I read this once as a kid and I couldn’t get my mind around it. I didn’t dislike it, but I didn’t much like it either. I remeber trying to start the second one and then never finishing it.
As an adult, I find my opinion hasn’t changed but it makes more sense to an adult mind. I didn’t much care for Meg, I still skipped over the religious bits, and wasn’t left with much at the end.
It’s not a bad book, don’t get me wrong. It’s very good at defining love as the ultimate master over darkness. And what is darkness? Is it the devil? Is it hatred? Is it ill will in general? Is it the government? Who knows what IT is.
I have placed the second book on hold and we’ll see if it makes a difference for me.
