A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel

A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel - Hope Larson, Madeleine L'Engle A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books. That said, when I heard there was a graphic novel coming out based on the book, I was thrilled. However, my expectations were not met with this version. Maybe this is because A Wrinkle in Time (original) is so close to my heart. But certain images from that book have always stayed with me: the Man with Red Eyes, Camazotz architecture, tessering, Aunt Beast's image for love, and the mind games that the Man with Red Eyes uses on Meg. While certain aspects were depicted well (including the blindness Meg experiences towards the end of the novel), the Man with Red Eyes didn't even have Red Eyes. Tessering was shown as invisible movements, and few images of Camazotz were given. All in all, I expected too much. It's hard to replicate a favorite book.
