Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

“Wild nights are my glory,” the unearthly stranger told them. “I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract”.

Meg’s father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space?

Mana recenzija (pārdomas)/My (thoughts) review

Patika autores ievadvārdi pirms stāsta, kura pati to arī ierunājusi un pat ļoti labi, atzīmējot īsi par bērnu grāmatas izdošanas grūtībām gan tāpēc, ka bērni ko tādu nesaprastu, gan tādēļ, ka tas atšķīries no viņas iepriekšējiem darbiem. Par to, cik ļoti atšķiras vēl nemācēšu spriest, bet kopumā patika. Par labu nāca arī Whatsit tēla balss efekti. : )

Tātad Megas un Čārlza tēvs kopš abu mazotnes pazudis, un ģimenei doti vien skopi paskaidrojumi. Kādā vējainā naktī, kurā neviens nespētu aizmigt, aizsākas ne vien tēva glābšanas operācija, bet arī cīņa pret tumsu un To; Tas līdz pat beigām palika ļoti noslēpumains ļaunais tēls.

Šajos varoņdarbos Megai un Čārlzam nav jācīnās vieniem, palīdz draugs Kelvins, kā arī trīs savdabīgas dāmas ar neparastiem vārdiem (viens jau minēts) un radījumi no labo spēku puses. Samērā ātri top skaidrs, ka tik viegli neklāsies un ar tēva izglābšanu viss nebeigsies.

Noteikti vēlāk turpināšu šo sēriju. Varbūt ir kāds zinātājs, kas zina, vai ir nozīmē, kādā secībā lasa šīs autores citu sēriju grāmatas, kuras saistītas ar Time Quintet. A Wrinkle in Time varētu nebūt priekš pašiem mazākajiem, bet sākot ar MG domājas gan.

***************************************

One thing I liked was the introduction by the author which also recorded the book briefly mentioning the hardships to publish this book either because children wouldn’t understand it and because A Wrinkle in Time was majorly different from her previous ones. I can’t judge how big the differences are but overall I liked it. Another plus was the character’s Whatsit voice.

So, Meg and Charles’s father has been missing since their early childhood and the family receives very little explanations what had happened. One very windy in which no one could fell asleep begins not only their father’s rescue operation but also exciting fight against darkness and It. It even until the end remained a very mysterious evil character.

Meg and Charles aren’t alone in these adventures, and receive help from their friend Calvin, three bizarre ladies with very uncommon names (one already mentioned) and creatures from the good side. Soon it becomes clear that this rescue and fight won’t be that easy and it’s not going to end with saving their father.

I’m hoping that in a short time I will manage to continue this series. Maybe someone knows does it matter in which order you read this and author’s other series that overlaps with Time Quintet. A Wrinkle in time might not be meant for the youngest audience but probably from MG or so.
