Title: A Wrinkle in Time
Author: Madeline L’Engle
A pleasure to return to this series. These books were some of my favorites when I was in middle school. I enjoyed this one just about as much now. I had not noticed the somewhat religious overtones before, though – a few Bible quotes, mention of God in a pretty clearly Judeo-Christian mode, etc. However, these mentions worked in the larger framework of the book, and are not too overt. The character of Charles Wallace is wonderful, as are Meg and Cal. There’s also a great 1962 mention of “large computing machines.” I may need to reread the whole series.
