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
    "Unconvincing Narration"

    I have never read A Wrinkle in Time before and as soon as I heard Ava DuVernay was attachted to direct I went for it.

    As lately I've been testing out with audiobooks, I decided to try this one out.

    Unfortunatelly this one didn't do the trick for me.

    The story is indeed great (I had to buy to physical copy in order to finish it) but Hope Davis' choices in her interpretations, in my point of view, fell flat.

    She's a great actress, especially fantastic in "The Special Relationship", but this definitely didn't cut it for me.
    Maybe if she narrates Hillary Clinton in her book, I'll try it again.

    Story
    "Wonderful all over again."

    I last read this book, probably 30 years ago, as a child. I remembered it far less than I thought I did but it was just as wonderful at 42 as it was a twelve. It’s a rare book that this can be said of. Hope Davis’ narration was also phenomenal as well.

    "Quick and fun "read""

    I wanted to read/listen to the book before the new film comes out next year. It was a great, faced-paced story with interesting characters and imagery. Hope Davis does a great job with all the characters.

    "A wonderful journey - every time. "

    It is so easy to fall into this book and get lost within its (verbal) pages.

    "A child's story! NOT FOR ADULTS"

    This is a story for elementary school kids. Incredibly simple story with no depth at all. It is literally like a bed time story. If you are more than 12 years old, skip this one.

    Story
    "Enchanting"

    Creatively and cleverly written in 1960, its sci-fi adventure influence can be seen broadly thereafter.

    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.

    Story
    "Not for me."

    I liked the look of the film, and therefore decided to give the book a shot. Reading it however made me realise that books narrated through the perspective of a child are no longer for me. The story was relatively short and concise, but the constant narration of the fear and then the subsequent bratiness and me against the world attitude makes me remember that I am not the target audience for this story. It irritated me and made the readers voice grind on my nerves with the repetition of said things. Perhaps I've missed the point, and am missing what makes this story great, but not everything is for everyone and this is unfortunately was not for me.
