Publisher's Summary

Madeleine L'Engle's groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture. This movie tie-in audiobook includes an introduction read by director Ava DuVernay, a foreword read by the author, and an afterword read by Madeleine L’Engle’s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis. 

Meg Murry, 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? 

In 1962, Madeleine L'Engle debuted her novel A Wrinkle in Time, which would go on to win the 1963 Newbery Medal. Bridging science and fantasy, darkness and light, fear and friendship, the story became a classic of children's literature and is beloved around the world. Now Disney is taking it to the silver screen! Directed by Ava DuVernay and with an all-star cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, and newcomer Storm Reid, the major motion picture brings the world of Wrinkle to life for a new generation of fans. 

A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time

As magical as when read to me when I was nine years old

I loved the story 50 years ago and this audible book version took me back to my childhood. A Wrinkle in Time sparked my interest in science and science fiction and remains an inspiration to new generations!

Great for my 10 year old, sorry is a little rushed

Good fun story, some of the obscure riddles to get the kids through troubles are fun but not too deep for adults

wow

This book was easy to breeze though. I remembered it vaguely as a child, but it means even more as an adult. Such a beautiful classic.

Hope the movie is better than the book.

Don't waste your time. This book's characters were lacking real personalities. The story line was lame and confusing. It was very hard to stay focused on this book.

A true classic

I had not read this book since I was a pre-teen, but it has always held a place in my heart. I remember how the concepts brought up were so foreign to me. They really made me think, and actually helped to shape the way that I saw myself, and the world around me to some extent. Listening to it as an adult was an equally satisfying experience. Not because I learned anything new about myself, but because of the waves of nostalgia that I felt as I read it. It seemed to bring me right back to those days of my youth as I read it the first time. Simply amazing writing, and the narration was first rate as well. Excellent experience.

Good book

I remember it being a fantastical book as a kid in school, but I can appreciate it ten times more as an adult now. I only wished it spread the journey out a little more, and explored more of the fantasy without things just happening, but overall a good story.

Love it

Great story for all ages. I’m so glad the author didn’t give up after getting all those rejections. I know there was controversy over this book, but I personally enjoyed every minute of it.
