I would totally eat a bowl of Cookie Crisp out of that trophy.
Oh snap, did they unfollow him on Twitter too?!
As someone currently delayed in California trying to get back to NYC, I will take the barf if I can sleep at home tonight
There is so much in these books to relate to as a kid. I am a 50 year old, gay, on the spectrum, ADHD, Narcoleptic... I identified with both Meg and Charles, and had a crush on (would still like to find my) Calvin, and of course, completely missed the Christian subtext. The series is still on a shelf of childhood… Read more
This was the kind of Christianity I grew up with, and I was always confused with the fire and brimstone types.
I just threw my hands up in the air yasss aring of endless light!!! Honestly I need to go back and reread some L’Engle books
I remember reading “A Swiftly Tilting Planet” and them mentioning something about mitichondria...? And then years later when Star Wars Phantom Menace came out and they started talking about “Midiclorians” it vaguely reminded me of the book......
Interestingly weird🤔. I’m an African American male and read the book 40 years ago and the thing I remember about it most is how it introduced the concept of the tesseract. I’m sure that if there was a hint of the family or meg specifically, being non-white, I would’ve remembered it since the default race in American… Read more
I don’t recall any specific mention of Meg’s race, but I am quite sure her little brother was described as being blond, which I suppose doesn’t absolutely preclude the family being people of color, but it seems unlikely that L’Engle meant it that way. Still, just the fact that Meg was a strong female protagonist known… Read more
What an incredibly inventive book. I remember one of my teachers reading this to the class over several days. Here’s a sad fact: one of Madeleine England’s elementary school teachers hated her and told her she was dumb and would never amount to anything. It makes me bristle every time I think about a teacher doing… Read more
I mean, Chris Pine is RIGHT THERE.
Oh - A Ring of Endless Light - I LOVED that one. I want to go home and re-read all my L’Engle books now!
This is the book that I remember most when I look back at my childhood reading habits. It is still one of my favorites and one of the reasons i fell in love with SciFI/fantasy novels. I don’t know for sure but I suspect that Meg was a subconscious influence that steered me to become an Engineer 35+ years ago when… Read more
A Wrinkle in Time (and the rest of that series) are treasures for a lot of reasons, and one of those is the overtly Christian worldview. The church in America has a pretty fraught relationship with arts & culture, so having a Christian author writing speculative fiction that’s actually thoughtful and artistic is a… Read more
Yep, I thought Player of Games could be done in a mini-series, leading up to Consider Phlebas. I’m re-reading the Culture series at the moment, halfway through Use of Weapons, which would have to be seriously altered to get it to work on TV.
Wow. I don’t even care if they screw it up, as long as I get to see a GSV and an orbital.
