One other type of literary genera that Wrinkle in Time led me to was dystopia fantasy. One of the eeriest scenes in the book is when the children arrive at the planet where Charles Wallace and Meg’s father is held captive, they discover the planet and all its inhabitance is under control of a giant telepathic brain called “IT.” I remember being very alarmed at the description of an entire block where the children were made to play in unaccent. When a boy bounces a ball, it hits the ground at the same time a girl’s jump rope hits the ground. When the ball comes up to the boy’s hand, the girl’s jump rope is over her head. This level of control was something that blew my mind at the time. Since then I have also had a passion for some scary books.
