This was THE book that got me into sci-fi/fantasy. I haven't read it in probably 20 years, but I still remember parts of this book, and the series in general. These have a fairly heavy Christian/moral tone that I did not notice until I was older, but are highly recommended for kids of all/no faiths, especially those who feel "geeky" and unappreciated.

An awesome combination of sci-fi and fantasy. If you're the sort that enjoys it when the book you're reading gives you wings, you'll probably enjoy A Wrinkle in Time! DELICIOUS!!

Unlike many others, I never read this book in middle school or high school. Rather, I first read it in my "Fantasy Literature" class in college (I was the first engineering major to ever take that class - ha ha) and really enjoyed it. I can see why it would appeal to a younger audience - the main characters are children who go on an adventure into the universe to save their father. But I can also understand why we read it at the college level - there's a deeper reliogio-political side to it that's worthy of serious discussion.

This is a 1963 Newbery Medal winner, and the first in a four-part series that also includes: A Wind in the Door; A Swiftly Tilting Planet, which won the American Book Award; and Many Waters.

Honestly, I am still undecided what I think of the book. It had a good base message and some of the concepts are interesting, but the writing didn't hold me, and I didn't find myself getting attached or even caring about most of the characters. Perhaps I'm just too old for the book.

I enjoyed this book when I was a kid, and I enjoyed it as an adult. Some of the concepts flew over my head when I was younger that made the book more interesting as an adult. Great book!

I loved this book when I read it as a kid. I still liked it as an adult. I think we all fantasize about time travel, and this gives a logical though uncontrollable way of achieving it. This book was used as a book club choice for adults & young adults. Of the entire group, only one person didn't like it. We also read "When you Reach Me" by Rebecca Stead. This was not as universally liked by the group, but the two tie together. If you read and like "A Wrinkle in Time" you might try the our other choice - it's kind of creepy, and a real page turner in my mind.

I love this book, and I love the series. I ordered this book because I lent out my copy and needed another to lend to my boyfriend.
