3 1/2 - 4 star read. This is this month's old book read and it is really old, coming from 1962. So I haven't read this for over 50 years. I enjoyed this lovely little book. Meg is an outsider, she's not as smart as the others in school, her mother is beautiful and she is not, her brother is well liked and she hasn't got a friend, everyone teases her about her father being missing. But one day, she meets an older boy from school named Calvin who wants to be her friend, and she meets a strange being and soon embarks on quite a journey through time and space to find her father and learn a lot about herself. I enjoyed this book.

This book is a great book and it is very enthralling. The other planets and the creatures that Meg and her friends meet are very fascinating. It is a page turner because the quest to find Meg's father helps her uncover new things about the universe. The Tesseract theory really sucked me into this book because with a little research, I found out that it is an actual theory (even though it is explained in a different way in the book) and I am very interested in physics. This is a must read for all kids graduating elementary school or entering middle school. This is one of my favorite books of all time.

I didn’t read this book as a kid and only read it now in my 50s. I have no idea why this book is such a cherished book. I found the christian undertones insufferable, the story flat and simple. I’m clearly missing something here.

Reread this book with one of my children. Brought back memories from childhood. I remember being enthralled by the book as a child. Rereading it as an adult, with a more critical eye, was fun. I think the ending resolved so quickly and simply. It is this part of the book that could be improved. It seemed a bit as if Ms. L'Engle was rushing to finish the book, rather than resolving it. Some of the threads of the story were left unanswered, which allows for sequels, I guess. My son really enjoyed it nevertheless.

A Wrinkle in Time tells the story of a high-school aged girl, Meg Murry, who goes through a treacherous adventure through space and time with Calvin, her friend, and Charles, her brother, to rescue their long missing father who is held captive on another planet. On one stormy night, a woman, Mrs. Whatsit, arrives at Meg’s house and she introduces them to Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, who then explain to them that their entire universe is being threatened. Then, they must go to Camazotz, an evil planet, where Meg’s father is imprisoned. Throughout this novel, the entire group goes through various obstacles and are truly challenged to persevere at every stop. Meg must stay strong in order to save her father, or else, he may be gone forever.
This novel is one that I really enjoyed reading and analyzing because of a mixture of drama and educational lessons. Personally, this book was great to analyze different literary devices such as personification. I really enjoyed how Madeleine L’Engle portrays Meg, the protagonist, as it motivates the younger audiences in positive ways. I would recommend this book to any elementary or junior high school student because it was such an enjoyable read.

A Wrinkle in Time is amazing. The complexity kept me in awe, on edge, and turning the pages. Very well written.

"The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling , brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called, but God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the things which are mighty. And base things of the world, and things which despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are."
