A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is reminiscent of the Narnia chronicles, Cinder, and even a bit of Hunger Games. Something you could call a children’s novel, but which really carries loads of adult topics and struggles throughout. It was a magical and fun adventure book.
The characters were original; I doubt I’ve ever heard of many of the types of creatures and characteristics called out in this novel. The writing really added to the imagery of every instance and I found myself lost in L’Engle’s world of tesseracting and IT.
To make it all that much more enjoyable, this novel is a part of a series of Christian novels. It makes me want to re-read The Narnia Chronicles, too!
