Publisher's Summary

Rediscover one of the most beloved children's books of all time: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle:

Meg Murray, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. He claims to have been blown off course, and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a "tesseract," which, if you didn't know, is a wrinkle in time. Meg's father had been experimenting with time-travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father?

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Story
    "Enjoyed reliving a childhood favorite."

    I read this book as a child and wanted to listen to it again. I enjoyed Hope Davis as the narrator. She had a very pleasant voice and I loved her different character voices.
    I would listen to it at night before falling asleep. which made it easy to picture the story in your mind. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

    Story
    "Wonderfully engaging and articulately written."

    I loved that there was scripture in this book! You don't see that in fictional literature very often, let alone children/young adult fiction. The story kept me going and the way L'Engle described things made even the impossible to understand comprehensible enough to keep moving forward and enjoying the story.

    "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.

    "Winderful, captivating, story"
    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Excellent"

    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!
