I missed this one as a child. Well, sort of. It was a "read-aloud" after lunch recess sometime in elementary school, but I usually daydreamed through that time, so I didn't remember a thing from this book. Back then I wasn't terribly interested in fantasy or sci-fi, anyway, so I'm not sure I would have appreciated it. But I'm glad that between When You Reach Me (an excellent book that references A Wrinkle in Time) and book club, I finally decided to read this classic Newbery-winner.

I loved the
"A Wrinkle In Time" captures the excitement and enormity of the hope at the dawn of space exploration.

Newbery Medal--1963

I am not a fantasy reader, but this book transcends that genre. The sense of love, family and devotion make this so special. Who can't help but love the character Meg? I listened to the audiobook read by L'Engle--fabulous. There is just something about hearing the author's words spoken as they were written, even if the reader is not a professional actor.

Classic. I loved this when I was a kid and I loved it this time around, too.

Meg: "Do you think things always have an explanation?"
Mrs. Murry: "Yes. I believe that they do. But I think that with our human limitations we're not always able to understand the explanations. but you see, Meg, just because we don't understand doesn't mean that the explanation doesn't exist."

Newbery Award winner 1963. If you or your child enjoy science fiction, mystery and venturing into the unknown, then you'd love this book. It was definitely interesting and well written but not one of my personal favorites.
