Mr. Murry has been missing for a year — on a mission so secret even his family don’t know anything about it. Meg, the oldest of the four children, feels like a moron. The twins are enviously normal. And Charles Wallace, the baby of the family, is a genius.
But there are many secrets, in the Murray family — secrets all suddenly revealed when Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which make a sudden appearance at the Murray house.
It’s time Mr. Murray was found.
Maybe if Meg had known what it would take to get her father back, maybe…just maybe, she wouldn’t have rushed into it.
After all, who can withstand the throbbing mind of IT?
And IT has her father.
A timeless classic (literally), this book is a must-read for those who love Science-Fiction — and a little fantasy flung in as well.
The book dances with the impossible, the improbable and explains them all to perfection.
Not only great Science-Fiction, A Wrinkle in Time also has a detailed story line, complete with sub-plots and characters. You read through Meg’s eyes — seeing all her faults, failings and passions. She loves her father so much, but how far will she go to get him back? And at what cost? Maybe…the cost of her precious baby brother — Charles Wallace?
The book is short, good for a few sittings and then for much thinking. As a fantasy writer myself, the concepts that the author put forth enthralled me. I loved every minute of it.
