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.

    "a blast from the past"

    Just as mesmerizing and terrifying as when I was a kid. overall great narration although at times a little over - frantic and whiny. But well done on the many different voices. Definitely a wonderful way to pass the commute time!

    "Love the book...the narration, not so much"

    A Wrinkle in Time is a fantastic book, as are all the Madeleine L'Engle books I have read. I was eager to listen to it on Audible with my kids. It started off well enough. Hope Davis has a pleasant voice when reading as the "Narrator" of the story and when voicing Mrs. Murry. For the most part she does an admirable job of varying her voice for each of the characters in the story. However, her voices for the characters quickly become tiresome and grating. Meg, the main character, comes off as whiny, so much so that one quickly wants to tune her out. Calvin's voicing has a quality to it that is almost cartoonish and unbelievable. Charles Wallace's voice changes between sounding like a tired old lady and grating like fingernails on a chalkboard. Finally, Mrs. Which's voicing is so weirdly ghost-like that one can barely understand what she is saying. None of my children liked Mrs. Which's voice. Arguably, L'Engle writes Mrs. Which in such a way as that it would be challenging to voice her in any medium. So kudos to Ms. Davis for attempting that daunting task. I just wish that the diction would have been clearer.

    Ms. Davis does a lovely job with her foreign language pronunciations for Mrs. Who in Latin, German, French and Spanish. Unfortunately, the breathless quality with which she voices Mrs. Who while at the same time rushing through those beautiful lines and their translations, leaves the listener with a sense of loss at not being able to fully appreciate the quotes and how marvelously L'Engle uses them to add to the story.

    While I highly recommend A Wrinkle in Time, I would say that if the voicings matter a great deal to you then be sure to listen to samples from other narrators before making your selection. Keep in mind that this is a hard book to narrate, though, so despite the fact I'm not a fan of Ms. Hope's voices for the characters, I do believe she put a great deal of effort into each voice and into keeping them mostly consistent throughout the book.

    "It was ok but then I'm an adult"

    It was ok but then I'm an adult. The narrator did well. I didn't know it would have a spiritual slant not that I'm against that. It was a little slow in some parts and I thought some parts might be over younger ones heads.

    "A Classic Series"

    I read this book in middle school many years ago and decided to read it again for nostalgia's sake. The book is well-written and even thought-provoking. The narrator does a good job. This is more than worthwhile.

    "Thrilled to pass this on to my children"

    A Wrinkle In Time was my absolute favorite book when I was a kid. I remember reading it in the fifth grade (and re-read it countless times) and today my children and I finished reading this together as part of our homeschool. They loved the story as much as I did and they didn't want it to end. The narrator did a superb job of conveying the moods of the characters. So glad to have found this on Audible!
