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.

    "totally engrossed!"

    This is an excellent rendition of a childhood favorite of mine. good for a girl or boy with a fair interest in science leading into science fiction.

    "Didn't want the religion"

    Too religious for me, I hadn't quite noticed that when I read it as a child.

    "A childhood favorite!"

    I read this book when I was a kid, and now I get to share it with mine! I love how this book is so fantastical, yet no matter how far in the universe the characters go, they come back to The universal theme of love and how love conquers all.

    "Great voice talent telling an amazing story"

    The characters are amazingly well portrayed in this audio version, especially Meg. As to the story, it is just as fresh and relevant today as it was when I first heard it on audio book way back in 1974 or 75.

    Story
    "Breathless"

    It was the best best. A magnificent story.
    I did not struggle at all. Actually, My mom struggled to understand. I was like a "swish!" and I was finished reading it. This book will always be remembered. It was easy to read it and I got everything what the story was.
    Nobody could have wrote better than this wonderful, adventures story.
    I really liked the narrater. She had all the voices for every character and read in a steady tempo. It was the best narrater! I wish she read other stories of Madeleine L'engle. I am very sure she wrote other stories great, too.

    "not as good as expected "

    I thought my child would love it. She did not! She enjoyed the Secret garden much more.

    Story
    "Tears are in my eyes as I listened to the last few minutes of "A Wrinkle in Time""

    How can this possibly turn out right? I wondered as I listened to this story I had not read as a child when everyone else seemed to be reading to it. Over fifty years ago L'engle wrote this story. Finally I listened to it to try to find out what made it a classic. I am so glad I did. Meg had to be her own hero. Love was the weapon that could defeat "it." Our best weapon is still Love.

    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.
