A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel
by Hope Larson
No current Talk conversations about this book.
I liked the art in this graphic novel adaptation, but the story seemed to have lost a lot of its subtlety along the way. I don't expect graphic novel versions of novels to be a perfect match to the original story, but some, like A Game of Thrones, are done exceedingly well. This one was only OK, and the only thing that bumped it from 2 stars to 3 for me was the color scheme.
This is a decent enough adaptation of the novel with lovely drawings. In particular, I liked the way Aunt Beast was portrayed. However, it lacked the power and creepiness of the novel. It just didn't quite capture the true horror of It and Camazotz.
I don't even understand how I could love this book so much as a kid and just not be able to connect with it at all as an adult. That's not Hope Larson's fault -- I think she did a great job adapting the story, but boy, it just leaves me flat.
This is a graphic novel based on the famous book A Wrinkle in Time. This book visualizes the original story using a comic story formatting. The plot is the same, but there is less text. I think this book would be best for students who do not enjoy reading; this might spark their interest. I was not personally a big fan of this book. I have never read the original book or watched the movie; before reading this book I was unfamiliar with the story. I was confused by the book; I think this graphic novel version of the story was missing context and character development
