I liked how this book is full of adventure and excitement and keeps the readers interest.
I would recommend this to a friend. I chose this rating because this really is a great book.
I don't know how I missed this before. All of my friends read it at some point. I'd heard about it but I never really gave it any attention. It's so good! Now I understand what the big deal is. I had not heard the earlier narrator but Hope Davis is particularly good.

It's still a fun and fabulous book. I first read it when I was a preteen or teenager, and the only thing was the struggle between "good" and "evil". I have read it several times since then, and each time I get a little more from it. I doubt that the author intended it to be an allegorical treatise on good versus evil, but it can be twisted and used and interpreted and applied to so many situations that it is easy to create it.
I realized this time that that the main character is only 13. It seems wrong in many ways, except that when I first read it, I was about that, and she seemed so right.
It's about a girl, Meg, who gets involved in a search for her missing scientist father, with her younger (five-year-old) "strange" brother, Charles-Wallace and a 15-year-old boy, Calvin, that she just met but is equivalently (although totally differently) strange. They get taken up by three wacky superhuman women and travel through galaxies and experience true evil incarnate. All of the characters are well-defined, and when you think that there's a chink, you determine that it's really just humanity written in. I strongly recommend this!
The narration is one of the best I've heard. I read the book when I was a child and had to listen when I saw it available. I have also seen the movie. This is what the movie should have been. Wonderful!
Yes. Its a great way to show children the affects of evil in the world and the power of good. Great religious connections can be made.
A Wrinkle In Time is an amazing story narrated by Hope Davis. This is a new start to a new favorite series!
