For Charles Wadsworth Camp and Wallace Collin Franklin PUFFIN MODERN CLASSICS A WRINKLE IN TIME Madeleine L’Engle was born in New York City in 1918. She wrote her first story at the age of five - about a little ‘grul’. No, it wasn’t science fiction - she was a poor speller. She did poorly in most of her classes, she said, because she wrote reams of stories and poems when she should have been doing her schoolwork.

Madeleine L'Engle was an American writer best known for her young adult fiction, particularly the Newbery Medal-winning A Wrinkle in Time and its sequels A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet,. Her works reflect her strong interest in modern science: tesseracts, for example, are featured prominently in A Wrinkle in Time, mitochondrial DNA in A Wind in the Door, organ regeneration in The Arm of the Starfish, and so forth. Madeleine was born on November 29th, 1918, and spent her formative years in New York City.

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!
I was reading this at night as I recovered from total knee joint replacement surgery.The reason I bought the book was because I want to see the movie when it's available. When I started reading it, I really didn't know what to expect, but I stuck with it to the very end, because the story line and characters were very intriguing. Now I'm even more curious to see how the movie version of it turned out, which usually doesn't turn out as well. However, the premis of the book and how it all came together in the end was delightful. This is one I'm keeping on my shelf for a later re-read.
A Wrinkle In Time is one of those classics that always seems to pop up in book discussions but it's one I had never read, nor considered reading. So, with the release of movie in early 2018 and its brilliant looking trailer, my interest was piqued. I decided to buy the book and read it with the intention of also seeing the movie. Looking back, it was the movie hype alone (and Oprah) that had made me decide to read the book.

To cut it down to the basics, A Wrinkle In Time is the story of a girl, Meg, her friend Calvin, and her brother Charles Wallace, in a search for her long lost father. As the plot evolves we find that he was playing with time and had disappeared into its depths. Enter some magical ladies who want to help them find him and we are off on a journey to strange places with mysterious characters.

The book was written many years ago and it does have that certain charm and innocence compared to today's books. But this book actually left me flat. I didn't remotely identify with the characters nor did I really care about their success. From early on, I found myself wanting it to end. But I kept reading, thinking that I must be missing something about a book that has hooked so many dedicated fans over many years. That was the main thing that kept me reading - the promise that it was so loved that there must be something amazing on the way. Unfortunately, for me, it didn't arrive.

In a Nutshell - I really didn't enjoy this at all and was relieved when it finally ended. So, I guess that also rules the movie out of my 'to watch' list.
