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.
