Review

Praise for A Wrinkle in Time:
 
“A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I’ve read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT.” —Meg Cabot
 
“A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place.” —Cory Doctorow

Praise for A Wind in the Door:
 
“A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment.” —School Library Journal, starred review
 
“Madeleine L’Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time.” —The New York Times Book Review

Praise for A Swiftly Tilting Planet:
 
“An intricately woven fantasy ... Theme is L’Engle’s greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living.” —Booklist, starred review

Praise for Many Waters:
"This will be enjoyed for its suspense and humor as well as its other levels of meaning." --Kirkus Reviews
 
"L'Engle blends speculative fiction with biblical theology to create another provocative spellbinding tale." --Philadelphia Inquirer

Praise for An Acceptable Time:
"L'Engle has again achieved the award-winning style of A Wrinkle in Time ... Highly recommended." --VOYA

About the Author

Madeleine L’Engle (1918–2007) was born in New York City and attended Smith College. She wrote more than 60 books, the most famous of which is A Wrinkle In Time (1962), winner of the Newbery Award in 1963. L’Engle continued the story of the Murry family from A Wrinkle In Time with seven other novels (five of which are available as A Wrinkle In Time Quintent from Square Fish). She also wrote the famous series featuring the Austin family, beginning with the novel Meet The Austins (1960). L’Engle revisited the Austins four more times over the next three decades, concluding with Troubling a Star in 1994. The story of the Austins had some autobiographical elements, mirroring Madeleine’s life and the life of her family. Madeleine L’Engle’s last book, The Joys of Love, is a romantic, coming-of-age story she wrote back in the 1940s, that was recently published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy Goodness Sept. 12 2009
By Saro
Format:Paperback
It all started with L'Engle's classic children's tale A Wrinkle in Time. At the time, my curiousity was kindled because L'Engle's masterpiece was instrumental in an old lover's youth and I wished to familiarize myself with this muse of sorts. Years later, I bought A Wrinkle in Time and got hooked. Soon followed A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, and Many Waters. Before I knew it, I was immersed deeply in this fantastic, whimsical, and avant-garde series of children's adventures. It has been several months since my ardent travels through the Murry family's space and time travels concluded yet I feel just as excited as ever. The award-winning L'Engle has encompassed wonder, filial love, and adventure in the series which shall continue to resonate with kids across the globe for generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding Nov. 14 2009
Format:Paperback
An excellent and thoughtful book to read with your children (ages 9+) or to read on your own (11+). A captivating and complex story of three children on the adventure of their lifetimes. Although this book is darker then most of what is being written now, it provides rich layers and textures that make it a timeless classic. Beautiful and moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply marvellous! April 29 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fabulous! Absolutely friggin fantastic! This is by far one of my favourite series of it's genre (SiFi/Fantasy). The details in these books are so well thought out that, even though they are far fetched and difficult to conceive as reality, they actually seem plausible! The character development is beautiful and you really get to love them all. They all bring something knew and intriguing to the table. L'Engle's plot line and development is all very well thought out as well and helps you along quite smoothly and I feel that the series only gets better as it goes on !
