Summary

Madeleine L'Engle's groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture. This movie tie-in audiobook includes an introduction read by director Ava DuVernay, a foreword read by the author, and an afterword read by Madeleine L’Engle’s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis. 
Meg Murry, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. He claims to have been blown off course and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a "tesseract", which, if you didn't know, is a wrinkle in time. Meg's father had been experimenting with time travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father? 
In 1962, Madeleine L'Engle debuted her novel A Wrinkle in Time, which would go on to win the 1963 Newbery Medal. Bridging science and fantasy, darkness and light, fear and friendship, the story became a classic of children's literature and is beloved around the world. Now Disney is taking it to the silver screen! Directed by Ava DuVernay and with an all-star cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, and newcomer Storm Reid, the major motion picture brings the world of Wrinkle to life for a new generation of fans. 
A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time

sci fi for the young adult.

its a long time since I was a young adult but I did enjoy this book. its not in the harry potter or the secrets of the immortal Nicholas flamel series league but is a good introduction into the sci fi/ fantasy genre leading onto the great writers - Arthur c clark, Asimov, neil gaiman, terry pratchet.and phllip pullman
fast paced, good characterisation, a little scary, a happy ending what more could you ask for.
the narrator at times seemed to be a little stilted but acted the parts well.

Thank You for a New Narrator

Have always loved this book and when I found it in unabridged form I was thrilled. The first copy I purchased was narrated by the author, and while I love her books - I could not stand the sound of her voice. I was never able to get through the audio version because of it.

Now this new narrator is great and gives the feel of Meg Murray and her family. She does a great job. Story, great, narrator great - definitely recommended.

Great narration.

One of my favorite books from childhood. Hope Davis narrating is great. I first attempted to listen to a version narrated by the author, and it was unlistenable. Ms. L'engle is a genius writer, but her voice is not appropriate for the protagonist, and is, unfortunately, very spitty. And moist.
