  • Jose Smith

    "No boys allowed, haha! A Wrinkle in Time is a great book in a great series for young girls! A lot of science fiction isn't really inclusive for girls, having boy characters with boy problems. This is a book about a girl and for girls, and it's nice to see science fiction be inclusive in that regard. This book is a great way to introduce some equality and inclusiveness to the genre and engage young girl readers. Buy it!"

    "A Wrinkle in Time is a great book for young adults. It's a pivotal book that involves story of adolescence and many of the things we experience around that age. "

    "I didn't like this because I'm burned out on time travel. It' too convenient a device for writers. I read about a quarter of the book and then left it. What I read was okay, not great."

    "I have not yet read the book, but the movie version for this book has fairly mixed reviews, but mostly bad reviews. Although, I am not one of those people that seriously compare both the book and the movie directly, I would say all the good reviews of this book is simply worth trusting for and I would love to read this one soon."

    "I need to figure out which books are best to encourage imagination in my daughter, but a website like Amazon.com is too confusing to provide conclusive evidence for my search. While Amazon.com does offer interesting information about the book as well as an easy solution to buying needs, it doesn't necessarily give any indication that "A Wrinkle in Time" is a better book than any other science fiction piece featuring strong female characters. I need to decide which books are the best books to give to my daughter to encourage her to grow up to be strong and creative. Reviews on the site seem a bit skewed in such a way that I'm encouraged to buy books that I probably wouldn't otherwise. I need a site that gives me more comparative information."

    "This truly gives a glorious description of how the wrinkle in time terminology comes about. It does not particularly solve the problem however. "

    "A Wrinkle in Time seems to transport one to the world of the ethiral and magic kingdom. It is replete with vivid imagination and exploration. Once you pick the book up and begin to read, you never want to put it down until you've reached the end. Once at the end, you never want it to stop, that's a magnificent a story, well written, it is."
  • James Harper

    "I had read this book when I was a kid, but picked it up on a whim recently when I did a month of reading women writers, and I was delighted again by it. As an adult, you can enjoy aspects of it that probably went over your head when you were younger -- especially the simply superb descriptive writing. An the characterization is really wonderful."
    Michelle Mitchell
    Written on May 1, 2018
    "One of the best books of all time. It is a classic that should and must be read by anyone before they graduate high school. It isn't just about a strong female lead character, it's about good stories and creativity."
  • Peter Flores

    "I'm trying to get my daughter interested in more than just teeny romance books, so I searched for some kids Science Fiction tales. This one was perfect since the movie has just come out and we could go see it in theaters once she was finished. She loved the book more than the movie. Score!"

    Written on April 28, 2018
    "A Wrinkle in Time is frequently pointed to as a classic example of a book that caused a lot of controversy that we today might find silly. At the time it was written, however, it was a brave exercise in pushing the envelope of societal norms in art and literature. For that reason, I believe any literary fan would say you owe it to L'Engle and freethinkers everywhere to give it a read and widen your perspective given your age; you'll be all the smarter for it later in life."
  • Tyler Lucas
    Written on April 25, 2018
    "I think overall this book does sound interesting and I feel there are several potential plot twists that could happen here. The feedback is very positive and I noticed this particular novel is in the works of becoming a "Major motion picture", as well. Clearly stating it is also influential. "

    "This solution does solve the above problem, as the main character faces adversities she has to overcome. Because the main character is also a tween, girls her age can relate to her quest and feel just as empowered as the main character when she succeeds in her quest."
  • Dennis McCoy
    Written on April 23, 2018
    "Before the horrendous movies based on it, there was the Wrinkle In Time series. Yes, there's an underlying Christian theme, but it's not too much. In fact, the twins have sex with angels back in Biblical times, making it much more racy than the usual Christian scifi fare, but obviously, not nearly as racy as what's in the Bible itself. One of my favorite series, helping me stay away from conforming to, like, what society expects, man."

    "This is a great book series for young readers who are just starting off in the fantasy genre. Madeleine L'Engle does a great job of describing the world that the main characters inhabit. It easy to pick this book up and be lost in what your imagination creates. This is a series of books that won't take long for a young child to finish because they will be so enthralled. "

    "Usually the "It was a dark and stormy night" is ironic. That was before it was used to death, which back in 1963, was still the case. It was also before all the characters were "diversified" to be politically correct. My imagination traveled so far with this. It's sad what Hollywood has taken this book and now done with it."

    "A Wrinkle in Time was a favorite of mine when I am younger. Though I am not always a great fan of movies based on books, if for no other reason, typically it is a matter of there simply not being enough time to do the book justice. However, though I have not seen the movie, thus cannot comment, I'm glad for the fact that it has at least brought this book into focus once again. I enjoyed reading it again, after giving it to my daughter and letting her read if for the first time. It definitely is a 'best book'."

Immediately upon reading it I was whisked into the tale of Meg Murry. I formed such a deep connection with many of the characters and every twist and turn on the book was like a rush of adrenaline through my veins. This is definitely a novel for avid readers."

    "While I did find the book hard to put down, I felt that the characters were underdeveloped and the plot too rushed. I know it's received awards and lots of people like it, so I thought I'd give it a go. I know it is for youngish kids, so for them it might be fine, but I just wanted more"

I didn't have many friends when I was growing up and this book took me away to different planets and made me feel like I was part of a group of friends on an adventure. It made me feel like even the quietest kid could do awesome things and go on grand adventures."

    "This is a classic "fantasy" book written for young adults, before there ever was a genre called "YA". It is an introduction to science fiction in the most imaginative fashion. The author, Madeleine L'Engle, was able to take the most advanced scientific-philosophical thought of the first half of the 1900s and write an engaging tale that incorporated it. This book IS a "best books for teenage girls", and will set those readers on a path of inquiry and discovery into the very foundations of their reality."

People of all ages should read this book at least once, but chances are they will want to experience the story again and again. "
