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.

    "Better than I remember!"

    My third grade teacher read this to our class 40 years ago. It went over my head then but as an adult I find it fascinating. It is an epic good vs. evil book but in this book they actually battle the very essence of evil. It covers our right to choose, true communication through thoughts and ultimately that love is always the answer.

    Story
    "Favorite Young Adult Book"
    Would you listen to A Wrinkle in Time again? Why?

    I listen to or read this book about once a year. Up until this version came to my attention, I had only heard the one read by Madeleine L'Engle. Don't get me wrong, I love her writing but I did not enjoy her voice. This book is a touchstone for me. I came across it in the 6th grade. It profoundly affected my thinking then and remains a kind and thoughtful reminder of goals set in childhood.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Wrinkle in Time?

    My favorite part is when Meg realizes that she must do something she fears because it needs to be done. Aunt Beast is lovely!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It would be impossible to pick only one. I love everything in this book from beginning to end.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I practically have the thing memorized so I like to go slowly and listen carefully. I like to think about what I've heard and how my feelings about this book have changed over the years. I like to consider how the insights I found in these pages have led me into all the others that came after.


    Any additional comments?

    The things I learned from this novel have come to my aid more than once over the last 60 years. After particularly difficult time in my early 20s, I wrote to Madeleine L'Engle to thank her for the "help" she had given me. I'll never forget how thrilled I was when she replied. It has given me a lifelong admiration and sense of gratitude to writers.

    "Interesting"
    Would you try another book from Madeleine L'Engle and/or Hope Davis?

    Yes, this book was interesting. I bought it on a recommendation of a new friend. I thought the series could be interesting just not my type of book. I thought my 10 year old kid would like it but she said it was interesting but not something she was asking to listen to regularly like other books in the past.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes I thought they went well together.


    Did A Wrinkle in Time inspire you to do anything?

    No.

    "I loved the book and Hope Davis was so great."

    I loved this book. It had so many wonderful ideas! Audible is great!! Thank You!
    It narrates the book so its really easy to understand. Madeline L'Engle made a great book using all the ideas she had. I loved the part where Meg using all her strengths to save Charles. It shows that she loves him so much. This was a wonderful book.
