    1. Oh. My.Well, I can't say I enjoyed that very much, and it pretty much put me off ever re-reading the book. And I loved that book when I was a kid. Loved it!Easily, it was my favorite. I'm holding up my worn out, coverless copy as proof. But Jesusis made me rethink why I have such fond memories of it. Was Meg always this horrible and whiny? Was Charles Wallace an obnoxious know-it-all in the book? Were all of the characters annoyingly vague and cryptic in the original? And surely the dialogue was [...]


    2. This is the graphic novel adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, Madeleine L'Engle's classic fantasy from 1962, which won the Newbery award in the US and led to four sequels. It had never been published with illustrations previously, but is here adapted by Hope Larson 50 years later in 2012, for a new audience. It is an ambitious project, faithful to the original story, and attempting to cover much of its ground in very nearly 400 pages rather than present a précised version.It is difficult to ascert [...]


    3. I DNFed this book the first time, when I tried reading the actual novel. The graphic novel was bearable, but I’m still really unimpressed. RTC


    4. Ok, so, I have this thing about adapted graphic novels. Basically, I'm pretty uncomfortable that they exist. I get that adapting Shakespeare into GNs is a great way to make the text (originally intended for theatrical performance, after all) sing. And, anyone who knows me knows that I j'adore sequential art. It's kinda my jam, as a rule. You might call me an advocate.And I LOVE Hope Larson's work. Mercury is super underrated as a YA graphic novel. And I know that this swept the GN awards. I get [...]


    5. I still haven't read the classic book, A Wrinkle in Time that's why I grabbed the opportunity to read this graphic novel. The story is quiet odd for a children's book; I was expecting that it would blow my mind because I read a lot of good reviews about it. That monotonous talking about IT certainly got on my nerves. If you could see a speech bubble when I was still reading this, this is what you might read, "When will this going to end?! This is quite dull that it's just making me wants to craw [...]


    6. I expect a lot from my novel adaptations. If something's already an awesome book, and it's being turned into something else, be that a TV show or a movie of a graphic novel, I feel it should be equally as awesome. Is that so much to ask? You have such great material to work with. How can it go wrong? Of course, sometimes it does.I love A Wrinkle in Time and have read it many times. I was excited to read the graphic novel adaptation, because it seems like such a great book to do in the graphic no [...]


    7. UghHated it. The story was boring, the characters were beyond insufferable, the sci-fi element was nonsensical, and it was all so utterly dull… The artwork was okay though. Meg was one of the worst MC's I've ever had the displeasure of reading, she was such a whiny, insecure, needy, pathetic, dumb, shrewish, fishwife-esque character. I loathed her. Her annoying know it all brother and the rest of her family weren't much better either. Calvin was the only sort of decent character, but the fact [...]


    8. [This lady, who is old enough to know better, is being petty and mean.]Adaptations from literature into the comics form have it pretty rough. It's not like with movies where a charismatic star or a sublime musical score can provide lift for a work. Unless an adapter is wildly liberal in the work of adaptation, comics have exactly two things to work with: writing (provided largely by the original author) and art through which to carry forth the dialogical and narrative aspects of the work (respec [...]


    9. I loved A Wrinkle in Time as a kid, and I really like Hope Larson's work, but I did not especially enjoy this graphic novel version. The fantastic characters, planets and concepts suffer from the black, blue and white graphic treatment. I prefer the more vivid product of my imagination. I wish I had trusted my gut that this was too good to be true and skipped it, instead of reading 400 pages to end up dissatisfied and disappointed. However, I probably would not have re-read Wrinkle in Time at th [...]


    10. It's been 50 years since L'Engle put the landmark tale out there. A Wrinkle in Time was the first sci-fi book to win the Newberry. In it's original form, L'Engle's Meg Murray won over readers with her awkwardness and courage. Meg steals the show again in Larson's retelling. Larson uses a blue and black palette for all of her images in the graphic novel. I found myself convinced that this was in some way intentional as a representation of space and sky. I think for me the best part was that the i [...]


    11. What a strange, interesting and charming little book. I had never actually read a Wrinkle in Time (I unwittingly read book 3 in the series as a child and was hopelessly confused) but I still think I managed to absorb a lot of the story from this graphic novel retelling of it. It's a bizarre tale, but the hard to visualize concepts were nice to see drawn on a page - gave you a bit more of a visual but still managed to leave a lot very vague (which I think is important for this story). I think it [...]


    12. The difference between the original and the graphic novel: The graphic novel hits you over the head with the spiritual/religious elements of the original whereas the original was more vague and left more to the imagination.Check out my thoughts about the original book, along with the differences between the original and the graphic novel, here: youtu/XQl2zqyl_Eg?t=3m16s



    13. I went through this as slowly as possible to savor the graphic novel I have been waiting for!! The library ordered it in for me and I was ecstatic; it did not disappoint, nor for Molly. We were delighted that Meg actually looks like Molly - so fitting to me because since the first time Molly read "A Wrinkle in Time" as a second grader, I hoped she could see the striking similarities in personality that she shares with Meg. "Meg. I give you your faults." then the panel in which Meg opens her hand [...]


    14. I am so glad I revisted this story before the movie. While it was the graphic novel version, I think it was an awesome adaptation of the story. It makes me want to see the movie more which looks beautiful.Yes, this is one of those "love conquers all" "coming of age" stories. But it is a classic. It is one of the originals and you have to appreciate what it has done for children's scifi literature. It's scary and intense, and about being your own hero and growing up. There is sibling love and fam [...]


    15. A disappointment. I read the book for the first time pretty recently. I enjoyed it but don't have attachment to it created in childhood. I was really looking forward to reading the graphic novel; I'm discovering that I love the medium and appreciate adaptations of existing books.I hate to say it, but the art really dragged down the experience. I could get past not connecting to the style if I thought it fit the story, but most of the time I thought the characters' expressions were way off, based [...]


    16. What can I say? Hope Larson's graphic novel version of A Wrinkle in Time wasn't successful for me, but I can't think of what could possibly make a graphic novel of this book successful. When I saw this was going to be a thing, I was THRILLED--A Wrinkle in Time is one of My Books (as it's lots of people's Books). I have the distinct cliched memory of staying up way past my bedtime reading the last hundred pages from my bed, terrified and thrilled and moved even as a tiny kid. It's one of those bo [...]


    17. This marks the first time I was ever deeply moved by a graphic novel reinterpretation of a classic novel. If I ever had any reticence about recommending this wonderful young adult sci fi adventure it was only that Madeline L'Engle's writing, as lovely as it is, is somewhat dated particularly for a generation known for communicating primarily via text and tweet.What Hope Larson has done here with her wonderful work is make a novel written in 1962 as fresh as if it just came off the press this mor [...]


    18. Understand that I adore 'A Wrinkle in Time'. It is a book I go back to repeatedly, and I was excited to see what it would be like in a graphic novel format. The first half or so of this edition would have rated at least four stars. I thought the illustrator's style had a certain mid-60's feeling that worked well, and the introduction to the characters felt right to me. Things began to fall apart for me once the action left Earth. There's just something about the worlds L'Engle writes about that [...]


    19. When I was probably 12, I had a friend who kept referring to A Wrinkle in Time, who wanted me to read this book. So I borrowed it from the library. My reading experience was not as big as hers, but it was strong enough for me to return to Wrinkle several more times over the years. In my mid 20s, I borrowed from the local library all the L'Engle books that had. I remember being sad and frustrated that they did not have everything I wanted. I did find a autobiographical book she wrote. I felt to b [...]


    20. Text: 4 starsArt: 4 starsGraphic novel adaptation of the middle grade classic A Wrinkle in Time. Stays faithful to the original characters and story. Color palette is restricted to black, white, and blue, which suits the story well. The art is really excellent. I don't think this was an easy novel to adapt, but the flow is smooth and the pacing is just right. It doesn't quite do justice to the original novel, but it is an enjoyable graphic novel in its own right.


    21. 05/08/2017I really loved reading this, it's definitely one of my favourite children's classics, and I'm kind of stunned by how many people didn't ven know about this until the movie trailer came out. That being said for the first 95% of the book there's mainly only build up, and even the ending is pretty flat. I really don't know what I love so much about this story, but whatever it is, I need more of it on my tbr.


    22. I loved this book as a kid and was looking forward to re-reading the graphic novel version as an adult.Sadly, Adult Kelly did not enjoy it anywhere near as much as 11-year-old Kelly did.My first annoyance with the book was in the way it tried so hard to create mystery. Instead of actually creating mystery with intriguing, interesting scenarios, characters simply mention something random in a esoteric, name-dropping way, and then say, "oh, but you wouldn't understand," like some kind of sci-fi hi [...]


    23. Ok, it's time for me to be okay with not enjoying graphic novels. I've tried, and I just don't like them. My problem probably stems from being presented with a physical representation of what my mind has already created, and finding a discrepancy. I didn't like blue palette. The end.


    24. I read A WRINKLE IN TIME as a kid and it became one of my favourite books I remember reading. Having it in graphic novel form only adds to the brilliant story. I loved looking at the graphics as I read Meg's story. Definitely a must for any Madeline L'Engle fan


    25. Ainsley adored this rendition of the classic story. I wasn't sure she was ready for the heady prose of the original (she is after all, only a third grader). She was *so* excited about this version and ripped through it in a couple of days. I believe The Phantom Tollbooth is in order ;)




    26. This book is absolutely amazing. :) If you want to read A Wrinkle In Time but don't know if you'll like it I would check out this book, it is spot on to the original.
