I'm certain I either read this, or had it read to me when I was in elementary school, but I remembered nothing about it. So when the movie came out, I decided it was time to read it as an adult. While the genre (SFF) isn't my favorite, I did get caught up in the relationships between the characters, as well as Meg's internal struggle to believe her own value.

SPOILER:
I finished this book the same day the US Supreme Court ruled that the president's travel ban was indeed within his executive powers. For the past two years, I've seen and felt a coldness and darkness similar to what Meg experiences as she tessers. So to read Meg's eventual realization that love was the one thing she had that the villain did not encouraged me, and renewed my resolve to not lose hope in what feels like a truly devastating chapter of history. I have my love for others, and their love for me. I forget too often how fiction is just as instructive as non-fiction. ( )

One of my all time favorite books. Some of the themes are a bit too religious for my liking, but the characters and story balance it out for me. I'm also a lot more comfortable with L'Engle's type of religion in fiction than I am with some other authors. I don't feel that she's trying to push an agenda, just writing where the story takes her.

I like all the chacters but I love Meg. Shes stubborn and emotional, smart in some areas and ignorant in others, hot-headed and self deprecating. I've always found her to be very relatable and very lovable. ( )

Um. I thought this book was a classic. Between that hype, the terrible prose, the nonsensical plot and the heavy handed metaphor, I am quite disappointed. ( )

Sneaking this one in since I re-read it because of the movie trailer. Childhood favorite. You'll get no objective review from this corner. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For Charles Wadsworth Camp and Wallace Collin Franklin
First words
It was a dark and stormy night.
Quotations
"The tesseract--" Mrs. Murry whispered. "What did she mean? How could she have known?" [p.27]
Well, the fifth dimension's a tesseract...In other words, to put it into Euclid, or old-fashioned plane geometry, a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points. [p.75]
“Maybe I don’t like being different,” Meg said. “but I don’t want to be like everybody else, either.”
“You mean you’re comparing our lives to a sonnet? A strict form, but freedom within it?”

“Yes.” Mrs. Whatsit said. “You’re given the form, but you have to write the sonnet yourself. What you say is completely up to you.”
The middle beast, a tremor of trepidation in his words, said "You aren't from a dark planet, are you?"
