A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
A Wrinkle in Time

great flood, September 8, 2007

The book a wrinkle in time is quite the book to read. i myself write stories and i once in a while remember parts from the book a wrinkle in time when i read it. i don't remember so much about the book because i am old of age and this is what happens to my memory, but i do remember that it was a creative book. (i need to re-read that book sometime soon.) after reading that this book is on the banned book list, i was fascinated in how some can be so blind about things. i am pretty sure that not all authors want to add religous subjects to their books! books are not all about that. when people began speaking of C.S. Lewis's chronicles of Narnia books, and how they were religion related, i got very angry. this is not the point of all books. if an author meant to speak of this subject in their books, they would speak of it. a book can't be simply enjoyed without thinking of religion of political matters? this is what novels are for. these are simple ficton stories that are about unknown worlds and learning to face fears! not about those matters! i believe that these books are written to take one to another world and a new time, not concentrate on one that already exists!
