Stories from Days Gone By – A Wrinkle in Time

And now it’s time for another story from days gone by, my occasional series reviewing books from childhood.

This entry is a little bit different because I read the graphic novel version of “A Wrinkle in Time,” rather than the original version but since the story is the same and I have been meaning to read this book, I figured why not?

A Wrinkle in Time Graphic NovelMadeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Hope Larson

Review: Wow! I’d forgotten a lot about this book especially the fact that it is pretty trippy. All the weirdness was compounded by being able to visualize the different worlds and Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which and Aunt Beast. The art was pretty good. I would have liked to have seen more color instead of just black, white and ice blue, but I understand that it was an artistic decision. In my opinion, I would say that although still a good story, “A Wrinkle in Time” doesn’t hold up to time as well as some of the other stories I’ve re-read.
