Book Review: A Wrinkle In Time

A Wrinkle in Time (Time, #1)A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another well-loved children's book that I came to late in life.

And I liked it.  But I wanted more description.  More understanding.

Of course, maybe leaving the descriptions sketchy was exactly what L'Engle had in mind, allowing my mind, my prejudices, my life experiences to fill in the gap.

"You're given the form, but you have to write the sonnet yourself. What you say is completely up to you."

  1. I think children are better at filling in gaps than adults. It's good for a children's book to leave a lot to the imagination.
