The Block

A blog for authors and readers by publishers. By Wordsmack - a South African speculative science fiction publisher. Wordsmack accepts short stories, novellas and novels on a year-long submissions basis.

A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle How I managed to miss this book until now is a mystery. I read last week that is is to sci-if what Narnia is to fantasy and I obviously had to read it.

I wish I had read it as a kid because I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more. However, I can see why it is a classic.

My favourite part is where Meg feels "her disappointment with her father's human fallibility." I guess we all realise at some point that our parents are just humans - and our kids will realise that at some point too. I'll read this to mine some day so that they know their not alone.
