This was such a great book I couldn't put it down! I loved this book because a lot of the things that the author clearly made up seemed completely real when the concepts were explained. One of them was the concept of a tesserect being a fifth dimension of travel where a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points. I feel like the idea of a tesserect or a wrinkle in time was actually real when I was reading the book. The book is a little old but it still seems like any teen today would really enjoy the book because I enjoyed it so much. If you like young science fiction novels you will probably like this book.

I read A Wrinkle in time for school and i really liked it. I felt like I actually knew the characters, Meg, Charles, and Calvin. It tells about Meg, Charles, and Calvin going on an adventure to find Mr. Murry(charles and Meg's father) They meet exciting obstacles along the way. It is very well written and I reccomend it.

The first time I heard about this book is from my sixth grade teacher. She would read a chapter after lunch to us. students. I always look forward to it, and when she would finish the chapter, I get dissapointed when she would not read on. After she finished "A Wrinkle in Time", I went to the library to borrow it to read it again and again. I even read the other books in this serie.

This book is different than other books. This book is more fun and more exciting.

A Wrinkle In Time will always be one of my favorite reads. I put this book up there with books you must read before you die. This was my introduction into the scifi/fantasy Genre and since then I have never looked back. I love that this book includes a moral that no matter what your age or how different you are from other people you can still succeed in life and anything you want to do. Being different is what makes you who you are. Charles Wallace will go down in history as one of my favorite charcters ever written in a book. I will be reading the rest of the series and continuing on this journey with him.

A wrinkle In Time is a very interesting book, but one thing that I don't understand is the tessering. How do they tesser. When Charles Wallace explains it, it's not clear to me at all. What does traveling through time have to do with a line that is squared and the square is squared, and everything.

My favorite part of the book is at the end when Meg wins over Charles Wallace from it by using her love for him. I would have never figured out that love could have saved Charles from it. I couldn't put the book down until I found out what Meg had that IT didn't.

My favorite character in A Wrinkle in time was Meg because although she thinks she is dumb she really knows a lot more than she thinks. The problem is that she fails to realize it and gives herself a hard time in school. I think if she took her time to really get to know herself she won't be so hard on herself. She will also love herself as much as Charles Wallace loves her.

All in all I think this was an extremely interesting book. In fact I couldn't put the book down when I got to chapter ten (10).

A Wrinkle in Time is one of the best science fiction stories I have ever read. It tells the story of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin who go on this increadible adventure to rescue Meg and Charles' father. Mr. Murry and Mrs. Murry are scientists and the last they heard of Mr.Murry was that he was on some top secret government business. Now they'll have to team up with three witches ( Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs.Who, and Mrs.Which)to fight the powers of darkness and save Mr.Murry from IT. Along the way they meet some strange people and creatures including IT, the dark thing, the Man with the red eyes, and Aunt Beast. The thing I liked most about the book is Meg's determination to find her father and rescue him. She thinks that no matter what, her father will always be able to save the day. She gets a big dissapointment when he can't and instead Mr.Murry has to rely on Meg to save Charles Wallace from IT. This book deserves nothing less than five stars!

I don't remeber reading it as a child, I don't think young children could appreciate it very much. I think that this is one of those books that you need to read when you're older to really appreciate. It was mysterious, but well written. It just seemed to jump all over the place and was at times confusing, but, it was interesting and I found myself pushing forward to finish it.

I have loved this book since I was 12 years old (many moons ago) and I was so happy to teach it to my seventh graders last year. I love the fact that Meg doesn't fit in with her family or at school. I love the fact that we get to see her mature throughout the book. I also love the clever little quips like finding a "Happy Medium."
It's just one of my favorite Science Fiction books to read on my own and to teach from.

I think this book shows how a family's love can over power anyone or anything. Today the world's family's have fights. The children(including myself)are rebelious. The parents treat their parents with disrespect so their children act the same way. Children these days think school is a way to hang out with your friends. Parents think school is a babysitting service.......

I'm terribly sorry! I got carried away!lol! Anyway these children travel to worlds unknown to find and rescue their father from the clutches of evil. Before, they even begin their journey they meet Calvin a boy who is popular at school, but appearances at school can be decieving. Is calvin happy at home? Is he not? Does he have a crush on the daughter in the story? Well, read this book and find out!lol! okay?! what did ya think i was going to basically tell you every detail in this hidden story of adventure, love, and bravery. Guess again! READ IT,PLEASE!
