Really liked this book. Some reviews said there were a lot of religious references but what there was didn't take away from the story. Even though it was written many years ago the story is still great. Would recommend to kids and adults.

This book is simply gorgeous; it's all about time travel, but it's also timeless in the artistic sense. Written over 40 years ago, A Wrinkle in Time is still fresh. Its central theme is about developing self-reliance, judging nothing by its face value, and realizing one's inner strengths. The female characters are just as powerful as the male, and everyone in the story is imperfect and very human. When it was first published in the early 60s, this book would have been way ahead of its time.
I just finished reading this a few days ago; I didn't read it when I was ten, but I really wish I had, because it probably would have gotten me hooked on science early in life. There is a scientific and spiritual theme running through this book - no doubt a lot of people have spotted a zillion "symbols" in it - but it is simply an "unputdownable" book. I would highly recommend it to young and old alike.

“<b>A Wrinkle In Time</b>” is an adventure I knew I would love reading. I embraced it wholly and am glad three novels succeed it. There is an element that is science fictive but I call this youth fantasy, with a complexity appealing to grown-ups that’s probably aimed at us. I had no inkling about premise nor characters thus this adventure was entirely new; the way I love stories. There is surreal exploration, discovery, and strong emotions.

The easiest description is that the <i>Murrys</i> are special and as it goes in fantasy, hold a pivotal role in their universe. We spotlight all of them but sympathy follows elder sister, <i>Meg</i>. She’s like a square peg at school, unlike her popular brothers <i>Dennys & Sandy</i>. She underperforms but not for lack of intellect. She’s a mathematics whiz and her parents are notable scientists. Their Dad’s government work is secret, they haven’t been permitted to know where he is, and fear trouble when contact halts. Her five year-old brother <i>Charles</i> is an eloquent genius, with extrasensory perception too revved up for him to hide. He introduces <i>Meg</i> and a similarly special school chum to a trio of ladies, who scarcely bother to conceal that they aren’t of Earth. They know <i>Mr. Murry</i> needs help and only these three children are in a position to deliver it.

<b>Madeline L’Engle’s</b> creation is thought-provoking, memorable, and could only be born of the most outstanding imagination I’ve ever seen. The planets the rescue party traverses such as a two-dimensional one, the biological make-up of the ladies and other parties they meet, the sights.... are unparalleled and must already comprise a film! Learning about a dark, unidentified threat to their galaxy and that their Dad’s captivity plays a part, is overwhelming. <b>Madeleine</b> deserves every literary award in existence.

Although written in 1973, this book is still a favorite of many adults who read it as a child, and it has enchanted subsequent generations of children, as well! A magical book!

I remember reading it to my granddaughter, Michelle, who was born the same year WRINKLE was born. We loved it then, and we love it now. it has a bit of everything ... magic, fantasy, good versus evil, etc.--but most important it has lovable kids and a world full of wonder.

Impressive!

I first heard about Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time via Meg Cabot`s The Princess Diaries series, in which Mia cites it as one of the favourite books of her childhood. Then, it appeared in a book I still question myself for purchasing but which I simply cannot seem to bring myself to get rid of: 501 Must-Read Booksunder ‘Children`s Fiction’, published by Bounty Books. So, when I came across it in a used-book store for only $4.00, I knew it was time to give it a go.
For all its critical acclaim and all the ideas packed inside this story, it turned out to be much shorter than I had anticipated. Then again, it was originally written as a Young Adult book in 1962 (a different time with different standards for the lengths of Young Adult fiction), and there is definitely much more to it than at first appears. It is a coming-of-story with all the deep and painful and awkward and confusing emotions that go along with being thirteen as I remember it (the age of the protagonist, Meg Murry), but it has the added complexity of science, good-versus-evil, poetry, that there is such a thing as a tesseract, love, compassion, and aims to teach readers to see past the façade of appearances to the substance underneath. My favourite passage illustrating this is a scene is between Aunt Beast and Meg on the planet Ixchel:
Perplexity came to her from the beast. ‘What is this dark? What is this light? We do not understand. Your father and the boy, Calvin, have asked this, too. They say that it is night now on our planet, and that they cannot see.
