I read this in 4th grade and never forgot it and reading it as an adult brought back all the same thrills! Still unique even after all these years, engaging, page turning and memorable.

A timeless classic about time and space, or as Einstein's prof would put it, spacetime! Ms. L'Engle inspires with a book both heroic and darkly sinister. (Meg the highly intelligent and socially maladroit young lady, her brother Charles Wallace, the child prodigy equally emotionally intelligent, and Calvin The Reliable!)

Everyone must read this book it is so great.

A fantastically well-written book for all ages about risk, uncertainty, trust, confidence and love above all.

Fabuloous insights into combinations of human emotions and diverse physics conceptual introductions. Ideal for younger children trying to find their way in a complex seeming meaningless and harsh world,and the claim of science. A wrinkle is related to a timely view of how time and space travel will work in the futures to come. Perhaps it prepares one for the more gradiouse experiments and discoveries now upon us, or to come. Seniors might also get an emotional boost from this easy read the aukthor is prolific and generous with her feelings; a good read and a feel good book.

I think this book was good in its own way. It's a pretty good book, but I find maybe the author should work on the characters a bit.. so people could be able to have a favourite character. I wasn't too enthusiastic about it in the beginning, but in the end I appreciated the read much more. Pretty good book.

last year I was told to read this book at school in a group where we read a chapter than do a summary of the chapter. I being a person loving fantasy (Harry Potter, Narnia) the thought of si-fi turned me off, but once into the book I felt it very good and catching it was hard to stop reading this book is great timeless adventure a must read!

A story for all ages with some science in the science fiction. Creative, enjoyable. It left me wanting more so it's a good thing there are some more books in this series.
