I purchased this book for my granddaughter to read. She and I took turns reading the book to one another. We found it most delightful. We were able to vocalize the various parts and it was great fun. Great reading for all ages.

This classic tale of Meg and her brother Charles Wallace has been in my subconscious ever since I read it when I was a child. The themes of good versus evil, the hero being a young misfit girl who I could readily identify with, all gave me hope that I would one day be someone who could make a difference (although I didn't see how). This book is more than just a book - it is a message that "everything is going to be all right" without sugarcoating the evil that lurks outside and without hiding the fact that you, the next generation, is what has to fight it. A MUST READ for every YA reader. If it wasn't on my Nook, I'd sleep with it under my pillow.

This book is truely unique, I must say. Reading the other reviews, I see it aint everyone's cup 'o tea. And that's completely acceptable! People have different tastes and intrests and I respect that. You cant judge this book by its covor, nor can you take one's word for it. This book took me to Meg's house and the planet Uri in surprising, beautiful detail. , its 100% Kid friendly, (For the moms reading this that are looking for appropriate books for their children to read) and very good Christain qualities. I wont give any of the bool away, but if you have your spiritual eyes open you can see those quallities right away. In other words, I personally loved it and I reccomend that one would at least give it a chance.

Just kidding; I still like Harry Potter. But Madeleine L'Engle is definately supieror when it comes to character development. Meg - the protagonist - is really likeable, and I also enjoy the evident closeness displayed between her and her brother Charles Wallace. I rmember reading this just barely out of Elementary - I loved it! I'm 20 now and have read it twice more since then and still enjoy it. Great for all ages and a perfect 5 stars!

This book was one of my favorites as a child and I re-read it as an adult as well as reading all of the companion books (A Wind in the Door, Swiftly Tilting Planet, etc.) I loved them both as a child and an adult. The characters show a whole range of personalities and struggles as well as character traits such as bravery and kindness.

4th grade and up, all should read it, then re-read it every 10 years so you don't forget the importance of imagination in our lives to help us find new and better ways to use our gifts to serve others and create our own lives.

I loved the book when I read it. But its not a book that sticks in your mind. I watched the movie and I remember more but before the movie I only remember the basic and the parts that the kids in my class highlighted.

The greatest part about this story is the lesson,be careful what you wish for,I don't want to ruin anything so I won't go into detail, but that is what I got out of the story.

I read this book for the first time when I was ten, and it was one of the very first books I remember enjoying. Ten years later, I picked it up again, and while it brought me back to my childhood experience, re-reading also allowed me to see deeper into this book's themes, like the commentary it offers on communism. A Wrinkle in Time is a must-read for people of every age!

I was so engrossed by this book and so empathized with the character of Meg that I think it really affected me for the rest of my life. The science-fiction fantasy element and the emotional heart of the book make it winning for readers who love adventure, and those looking for a warm-hearted family story. I must have read the book a dozen times as a child- and even as an adult, I'd love to curl up with it again. L'engle's imagination is nothing short of inspiring, and her characters win your heart.

I read this book for a project in school and it is wonderful. It has so many adventures and it is so exciting!

I enjoyed this book very much. It tells a story of three children, Meg and Charles Wallace are siblings, and their friend Calvin, who go on an adventure to find Meg's missing father. They are helped by three mysterious, though lovable characters, Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which, who turn out to be much more than they appear. I especially liked the quotations from famous figures from around the world that are frequently elucidated by the mysterious ladies. The story has an underlying theme of the power of love and the strength it gives us all to face the world around us.

I first read this book when I was 11 or 12 years old. From that moment I was hooked on science fiction. The science ideas touched on in this book were way ahead of their time and are still cutting-edge today.

I LOVE this book. The plot's wonderful (I won't go into it because I destroy things when I try to summarize them and anyway you probably already know what it is). But I like the characters. Meg isn't quite accepted at her school. She's sort of an outcast, and I especially like that because I can relate to that. Much as I like Meg, though, I think my favorite character (at least of L'engle's works, if not in all the works I've read) is Calvin. He sort of masquerades as a 'beautiful person' - in with the popular crowd, basketball star, etc. But once we get to know him, he fits in more with the Murrys, who (for a lack of suitable words) just plain care more. Well, I may have ruined this attempt at a review...oh, well. It's a great book! Read it!

Do you know those books where you accidentally yell out loud to a character to run or hide because you are so tied into the book? The book, A Wrinkle In Time, is one of those books. The book started out with an unearthly stranger coming to visit the Wallaces house at midnight. The visitor was Mrs. Which. Most people thought she was a ghost who haunted the black house deep in the wood. She wanted to help Meg and Charles Wallaces find their missing father. The author, Madeleine L¿Engle, described setting, characters, and plot very detailed. It gave me a feeling that I was right there with them the whole time. Somehow it had the power to keep me reading the book rather than giving it up. At first, I agreed with what Meg and Charles were doing. But then I realized it was also a book with two endings. It all depends on what kind of personality you have. Some people choose one ending while others choose another. I did expect some surprising events toward the end. But it turned out to be a usual ending. The ending was just like those of other books.

Love how the concepts are thoughtfully done, and the threading of Scripture through it.
