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.

    "Still Amazing"

    Even after all of these years, this story is still positively extraordinary. I love how it takes you in completely.

    Story
    "Horrible Narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The religious overtones were a bit much. Sometimes it felt more like an indoctrination than an article.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I actually like the passages before they went time-traveling most, especially Mrs. Whatsit's visit to the Murray home.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Hope Davis’s performances?

    No. I don't mind someone narrating slowly for clarity, but she drew out each word so long that she robbed entire sequences of movement and pacing. The impersonation of Calvin and Mrs. Whatsit were good, but Meg was absolutely horrible, as was her mother. Charles was only a little bit better. As I listened to the inconsistent and distracting reading of Meg, I thought that Davis was ruining the book for me. THEN, Mrs. Which was introduced and I almost could not take it any longer. Thiiiiis Isssssss Awwwwwwfullllll. The funny thing is the text would often describe how words were spoken, angrily, excitingly, reprovingly, etc. 80% of the time, the way this narrator read the words was nothing like the way L'Engle described them. I have seldom encountered a narrator that did such a disservice to the story.


    Was A Wrinkle in Time worth the listening time?

    Yes. The listening time was very short, actually.

    "One of the best"

    This is one of my favorite books of all time. It is extremely well written, clever, and exciting. I like how it is not so long that you loose interest, and not too short where the story isn't getting moved along at a good pace. Thank you for getting a new narrator because the other one's voice got really old quick. Also, thanks to Madeline L'Engle for writing such a good book! =D

    Story
    "Very enjoyable for entire family (intense too)!"

    We enjoyed this story very much. Unfortunately, we did NOT care for Mrs Witch's voice, at all! Understandably, it was intentionally "strange", however, it was too distracting. Never the less, it was a great book to listen to while driving.

    "the narration was enough to make me quit"

    I'm not sure how such an amazing story could end up being told so terribly. The characterization of Meg's voice kept her in a constant state of distress. Her words were tremulous, faltering, and annoying. It was hard to listen to the constant warbling and shaking. By the end my daughter and I were mocking and laughing at how over done the whole thing was. Give this telling a pass. I'll certainly be asking for a refund.

    Story
    "sci fi for the young adult."

    its a long time since I was a young adult but I did enjoy this book. its not in the harry potter or the secrets of the immortal Nicholas flamel series league but is a good introduction into the sci fi/ fantasy genre leading onto the great writers - Arthur c clark, Asimov, neil gaiman, terry pratchet.and phllip pullman
    fast paced, good characterisation, a little scary, a happy ending what more could you ask for.
    the narrator at times seemed to be a little stilted but acted the parts well.
