    "What can you say about this book that hasn't already been said? "Sorcerer's Stone" is a classic for a reason, and is a true example of J.K. Rowling's genius. Don't be fooled by the classification of 'teen'. This series will have children and adults on the edge of their seats."

    "To me this book is right up there with Tolkien's best works of art. My grandma read them to me when I was little. They still have a prominent place on my bookshelf. Maybe 5 -6 years if we have a kid I'll read it to them. "

    "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."
