Publisher's Summary

Rediscover one of the most beloved children's books of all time: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle:
Meg Murray, 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?

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.

Just as I remembered it as a child

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I read this book as a child and loved it, I wanted to relive it with audio as I drove to my sisters house. I would recommend this to a friend to entertain you on a road trip, or nostalgia, or for your kids!


What other book might you compare A Wrinkle in Time to and why?

There are no other books I have read that compare to this classic. I love the science fiction woven into a childrens book!


Have you listened to any of Hope Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't. I might have to, if she did any other Madeline L'Engle's audio books I might soon!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Travel to an alternate solar system and back.


Any additional comments?

I was always bothered by Mrs. Whatsit's talking in quotes, that has always bothered me when people speak in quotes.
