This was the pivotal book of my early adolescence and is still a touchstone for me as an adult. No other book has had such a profound effect on my thinking, personality, spirituality, and character. I should clarify that I didn't then and don't now share her Christian interpretation of the universe which many people consider to be the essence of this book and much of her writing. For me, this book reminded me to say yes to life, to accept responsibility, to be brave even when frightened, not to make decisions based on fear, and to accept people as they are. The lessons that I learned from this book have seen me through some very difficult episodes. She gave me the strength to do what was right even when that action was dangerous. I found this book when I was 12. I will be 59 next month and I still read it once or twice a year. I am convinced that it is partly responsible for my still be here.

This is a great book for middle schoolers. I am reading it with my child. Great imagery. Excellent book to teach figurative language and a fun read. My child asks for our reading time together. If you start reading early with your child, they never get to old for it. He loves, even at 12, for you read a chapter, I read a chapter every night time. This has led to some deep conversations and has increased his ability to read dramatically and fluently. I encourage all parents to do this. One way or another, this is a great book for 5-7 graders.

Meg and her little brother, Charles, wonder what happened to their father, a scientist working for the government who has been missing for several years. When a strange old lady shows up at their door, the adventure to find him begins. The old lady and two more of her odd friends lead them out of the universe into the worlds of some strange planets that are under the influence of the horrible, shadowy IT.

A Wrinkle in Time is both a sci-fi story and a coming of age story. Meg, an awkward and insecure girl finds the courage and resourcefulness to overcome IT and save her father and brother. She also learns about the importance of family and love. While the character growth of Meg is nice, at times it seems a little contrived. One minute she's on the brink of death under the grip of IT, and the next, she's ready to face IT because she knows that it's something only she can do. It's also not very clear why little Charles, who has the vocabulary of a Harvard graduate, is so special. Some of the characters could have benefited from more development. Throughout the story there are references to Christianity: quotes from scripture, mention of guardian angels, and the idea that God is in charge of everything. This gives the story a "Chronicles of Narnia" kind of feel.

Overall, the story is very good, and one that would appeal to middle grade readers who enjoy sci-fi/fantasy books.

There are no words for a sublime emotional experience. Suffice it to say that I am so grateful to have been allowed enough time on the planet to do a reread of a childhood favorite from at least a 50 year life time ago perspective. The book instantly connected me to the girl I was and gave me an understanding of why science fiction became my most favorite comfort read for so far all of my life. A Wrinle in Time was my first ever trip into this genre , and what a fantastic trip it was!

Have you ever had a book that sat on your “to read” list for twenty years and you aren’t quite sure why? A Wrinkle in Time is just such a book for me. My little sister Katie highly recommended it to me while I was in college and even loaned me her copy, but I never got a chance to read it. It’s always been in the back of my mind, and with the new movie coming out, it seemed like now was the perfect time to read it.

This book has time travel and a female protagonist, which would have been totally up my ally as a teen / pre-teen, I’m not sure how I missed it. Originally published in 1962, I am amazed at how this book is before its time. Not only is the main character of this sci-fi novel a female, but her mother is also a PhD scientist that works as an equal partner with her husband. Very cool.

Meg never fits in anywhere. Besides feeling that she looks odd and she doesn’t like the regular material at school, her father vanished without explanation years before causing much talk around town. After a mysterious visitor appears, Meg together with her brother Charles Wallace and friend Calvin, travel through time and space to find her father.

I loved that the story not only was a cool time travel story, but was also a great coming of age story as Meg tries to find and like herself. I really liked the explanation of the travel through space and time using drawings.

Favorite Quotes:

“Yes. I believe that they do. But I think that with our human limitations we’re not always able to understand the explanations. But you see, Meg, just because we don’t understand doesn’t mean that the explanation doesn’t exist.”

“A book, too, can be a start, ‘explosive material, capable of stirring up fresh life endlessly,’ a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.” – a quote from L’Engle’s Newbery Medal Acceptance Speech from 1963. It is a wonderful speech about the love of reading and the love of fantasy/sci-fi. It’s worth reading on its own!!

Overall, A Wrinkle in Time is a classic sci-fi / fantasy novel that deals with time travel, and also understanding yourself and what it means to love. I thought it was a great unique story, especially for the time it was written. It’s interesting how many tales that came after it borrowed parts of it. I think the movie looks really interested and I can’t wait to see it!

Book Source: Purchased while we were Christmas shopping – I can’t remember where.

Incredibly superficial. The entire book has a preachy tone that pushes nonconformity and religion/blind faith.

As for the plot, there effectively is none. The first three quarters of the book is setup for a climax that never happens.

The aspect that bothers me most is how outdated it feels socially. The story pushes the tired "ugly duckling" motif and generally emphasizes the importance of good looks and traditional social standing and relationships, while confusingly claiming that nonconformity is the pinnacle of life and meaning. I understand that this is colored by the Cold War Communist scare, but the book gives a very strange and dated message.
