Item Description...
Meg Murry and her friends become involved with unearthly strangers and a search for Meg's father, who has disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government.

Publishers Description
It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was the Newbery Medal-winning author of more than 60 books, including the much-loved A Wrinkle in Time. Born in 1918, L'Engle grew up in New York City, Switzerland, South Carolina and Massachusetts. Her father was a reporter and her mother had studied to be a pianist, and their house was always full of musicians and theater people. L'Engle graduated cum laude from Smith College, then returned to New York to work in the theater. While touring with a play, she wrote her first book, The Small Rain, originally published in 1945. She met her future husband, Hugh Franklin, when they both appeared in The Cherry Orchard.

Upon becoming Mrs. Franklin, L'Engle gave up the stage in favor of the typewriter. In the years her three children were growing up, she wrote four more novels. Hugh Franklin temporarily retired from the theater, and the family moved to western Connecticut and for ten years ran a general store. Her book Meet the Austins, an American Library Association Notable Children's Book of 1960, was based on this experience.

Her science fantasy classic A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the 1963 Newbery Medal. Two companion novels, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet (a Newbery Honor book), complete what has come to be known as The Time Trilogy, a series that continues to grow in popularity with a new generation of readers. Her 1980 book A Ring of Endless Light won the Newbery Honor. L'Engle passed away in 2007 in Litchfield, Connecticut.

Madeleine L'Engle lived in New York City, in the state of New York. Madeleine L'Engle was born in 1918 and died in 2007.

One of my favorite books of all time  May 29, 2010
I read this and loved it as a child and I am now in my 30's and still love it. Not everyone is going to appreciate or understand the book. All of L'Engle's books are fabulous, which is why she's my favorite author. Her books are full of light and love, and are intelligent and philosophical. They're entertaining and make you think. Love her!!!
A Challenging Classic  May 16, 2010
"A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeline L'Engle is not for everyone. It has a religious message and offers a political one--the individual and the family more important than the collective (the book was published in 1963 when the Cold War was running hot). The science in this science fiction is more fantasy that anything else. But the book has been considered a classic for the better parts of five decades and there are reasons for this. There is a protagonist that many children can relate to and the characters are often striking if not particularly realistic. The plot is constantly moving and the story is so different that readers will want to continue to see what happens next. This is not an easy book to understand. Unlike too many writers for children, L'Engle did not think her readers were idiots and so she used large words, strange concepts and brings up names and quotes that many children would not be familiar with from Euripides to Goethe. L'Engle shows that there is evil in this world--and others--and we are, at times, forced to confront it.
Disappointing...  May 15, 2010
When I first starting reading it, I got a little tired of reading about sandwiches for practically the first ten pages...I mean come on, they have to go into detail about the ingredients and all that junk. It was sort of annoying.

Then I got into it...for a while. But then Charles Wallace got kidnapped and she saves her father, then she does NOT SHUT UP about Charles Wallace when the author could be going into a little more detail about how IT is related to the almighty Black Thing that is apparently so terrible but at the same time only screws up one planet.


When she goes to get Charles Wallace, she's all "oh gosh, what do I have that IT doesn't have" and then she figures it out:love. Well, gee, that's only been in like a million books and movies (i.e. Harry Potter), although HP was about 30 yrs later...

After that it just spirals downward. She saves Charles Wallace and her Dad and Calvin come along and tesser them back to the real world and they're all 'whoop-ditty-doo! we saved the world! Hello Mommy!'And I'm all, "What the hell just happened????!!!!!"

It just ends, and you don't even know what the hell happened to Camazotz and the Black Thing/IT. When you finish the book, you'll close it, shake your head and reread the last few pages. Then you'll search the rest of the book to see where it actually FINISHES. But sadly, that doesn't happen, and I HATE when it doesn't.

Don't waste your time. It's EXTREMELY overrated.
Out of ten stars I'd give it...a 2. But that's just me.

But hey, if you like being so confused your brain might explode, go on ahead and read this stupid story!
A Wrinkle In Time  May 3, 2010
A Wrinkle in Time: The Tesseract

Does dimension travel appeal to you? If it does, A Wrinkle in time by Madeleine L'Engle is right for you. It has cleverly written dialog and vivid imagery that will grow close to you throughout the book.

A Wrinkle in time is a story about three kids that travel to a different dimension to find two of the kid's dad. They travel with three immortal ladies named Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, and Mrs. Whatsit who is also a centaur. When the kids travel to the world of Camazotz, a world where not being like everyone else is a crime punishable by death. Charles Wallace, the youngest and smartest of the three kids, believes he can find the location of his captive father by going into the realm of IT, an oversized brain that controls the people of Camazotz, but he becomes one with it and only love will get him out.
The idea of good versus evil suggests a Christian view of the world, and there are a number of references to Christian concepts and traditions. Examples are when Calvin describes the three ladies as guardian angels;

If I tell you anymore it would ruin a great book, but I can tell you my favorite part. My favorite part is when the three kids travel to different dimensions on the back of the centaur version of Mrs.Whatsit. One literary device I enjoyed was the use of vivid imagery like the description of the world of Ixchel, a land inhabited by furry eyeless creatures.

Will the children find their dad? Or will Charles Wallace stay a zombie forever? If you like dimension hopping than I recommend A Wrinkle in Time for you.
fascinating  Apr 13, 2010
Meg Murray is a wonderful character and she really shines in this book. This book starts all the wonderful l'Engle series off. This book actually made me intrigued by math an science which I normally hate. Great and fun read.
