    1. I was given these books at age 10 by a family friend they are PRIZED in my collection This is the first time I remember truly escaping into a book, to a fictional time and place A Wrinkle in Time is the first book where I risked my 5th grade freedom and courageously read under the covers at night with a flashlight I was prepared to defend Meg and Calvin and Charles Wallace to my death Well maybe not to my death, but I was willing to sacrifice my hind end to a spanking with the dreaded belt I sim [...]


    2. I read this teen fantasy classic in preparation for the upcoming movie I hope to be wrong, but I can t imagine the film being faithful to the spiritual foundations of the books We ll see


    3. This Barnes and Noble collectible edition is a beautiful book I enjoyed the humor, action, and characters in this trilogy set Great series of books


    4. A fantastic story Learned a new word tesseract In geometry, the tesseract is the four dimensional analog of the cube the tesseract is to the cube as the cube is to the square.


    5. One of children s books that isn t timeless Read them while you re a child or you ll think it s awful I m sad I missed out on this


    6. A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet All such wonderful books in a three in one omnibus There s something simple and magical about these books that always reminds me of the childhood feeling of facing terrible moments and yet knowing it will turn out all right These books circle, with thematic beauty and fantastic narrative confidence, a message of hope and harmony despite the darkness, don t give in to the darker impulses in the world Science fiction, mixed with fanta [...]


    7. Great childrens classic with some deep philosophical and spiritual messages Would not hurt any adult to read or reread It s currently being made into a movie I ll be interested to see how it translates.


    8. I m reading this at 38, not 12 like you re probably supposed to, so I wasn t blown away by this like everyone seems to be, however I do see how it was a very influential, ahead of its time novel The first one flew by and was great, the second one I found to be quite a slog, as nothing seems to much happen and it s just a lot of repeating its concepts to make sure you Really Get It, but then book 3 was fun again as the explaining was out of the way, and there was a story again.


    9. Of the Trilogy, the first and classic A Wrinkle in Time is definitely the 5 Star hero Read it The Wind in the Door was great too 4 Star to me, building off the success of the first The 3d, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, seems a bit off due to the telling of the tale and how it seems the characters really are along for the ride than actually influencing the story but still a good read and I am a sucker for time travel stuff comes from the comic geek in me Read them until you stop enjoying them There [...]


    10. The fact of the matter is that A Wrinkle in Time has a lot of interesting ideas and conceptsWHAT SUCKS IS THAT IT S WRITTEN TERRIBLYAnd L Engle can clearly write absolutely beautiful passages, she has very unique ideas It s just all caught up in the whole let s sound smart and topical schtick she insists on pushing.I didn t like Golden CompassI didn t like thisI love Young Wizards and Narnia.Thank you.


    11. Not standing the test of timeFinally read a Winkle in Time I have passed this item on bookstore shelves for years and always meant to get around to it Years ago, I did read a swiftly tilting planet On this attempted re read, I only got have way though I found the banter between the characters lackluster The book s just didn t move ahead.I realize Disney is planning a cinematic version of Wrinkle, I will wait for the video.


    12. This trilogy is wonderfully imaginative and gives the reader a fairly tale as a young child, but a thought provoking, progressively unfolding story especially as we follow Meg and Charles through their problems.



    13. Read these for the first time in grade school and picked them up for my kids A timeless classic adventure.


    14. It feels wrong to rate this as I couldn t finish it I did get about 400 pages in when I realized I just didn t care what happened I think this is a case of being outside of the intended age range and believe that had I read this as a kid it would still hold a fondness As it is I barely got through A Wrinkle in Time and though I liked the themes I could care less about the kids Precocious kids are the worst when you are an adult without children These stories are full of know it all kids which I [...]


    15. This is a review of this edition of the trilogy, rather that the stories contained within I ll post those as I finish them.I really like this book The cover artwork is really beautiful The leather is worked so nicely that you could almost put it out on a coffee table just to admire it The pages are a good quality and have the feel of some of the old books I ve seen The font size is great I like the little scrollwork type things that are at the start of each chapter The little ribbon bookmark tha [...]


    16. Classic children s science fiction series that does a good job exploring various science conception of space time travel, while providing engaging characters stories L Engle crafts a nice mix of characters, particularly Murray kids their friends, who must endure being the children of brilliant parents, which comes in handy when something extraordinary happens to them She also gives some nicely simplified explanations of some pretty far out science concepts, such as space travel the ability to mo [...]


    17. A wrinkle in time is a fantastical adventure story for youths to broaden their ideas about time, place, family, the universe and beyond Entertaining and a fairly quick read 4 5 A wind in the door was the exact opposite, a very dry and uninteresting plot line that never caught my attention I worked through it, although with much hardship, wouldn t recommend and honestly just a waste of time 1.5 5 L Engle however redeemed herself with A swiftly tilting planet Another adventure through time, howeve [...]


    18. I really do like this book, even though it often gives me minor frustration palpitations This is a reread, so I m not as objective as I would be coming to it for the first time The Meg Calvin relationship in book one continues to drive me nuts because it is so completely out of nowhere, and the heavy handed religious aspect continues to annoy me, but I knew what I was getting into the first time and don t want to make a big thing about it It s still a light, fun, easy read, and I do still love t [...]


    19. I was not as enchanted as I read these books again I wanted to be and I m still excited about the movies coming out But I have to admit, my standards for good writing are different than when I was a pre teen I was surprised with many of the logical leaps and uncertain POV as I read the books again A younger reader isn t likely to take umbrage at such things, but I really was disappointed Still, I ve loved these books without actively re reading them for decades and there s a reason behind that T [...]


    20. WARNINGThis review is completely full of comments thoughts that may overwhelm you as much as this books overwhelmed me in a serious migraine and with a bad mood as a secondary effect, so please if you are sensible GO FAR AWAY.This serie made me so confussed, really, I haven t been that confussed in a long time But first I need to tell a brief experience of my own so you may comprehend my confussion.In 2013 I went to an exchange program in Quebec, Canada I thought Okay, it is Canada here people [...]


    21. It s been years since I had read this trilogy and I remember why I love it so much re reading it The Barnes Noble edition is gorgeously bound with a beautiful cover and the pages are lovely I sped through this easily I also understood a lot than when I did when I was younger I could see and appreciate the Christian themes I had overlooked, not overbearing but subtle enough to be appreciated it One of my favorite trilogies ever.


    22. I did like the first one it was very well thought out but it did leave you with a lot of questions Unfortunately most of those questions are not answered in the next two books but rather continue a story one still wonders how The third boom is way better than the second book and helos explain the purpose of the second But overall very jumpy storyline.


    23. I liked it I didn t love it It s a fantasy Sci Fi story about time travel and the war between good and evil I thought it was a quick read with a positive message about love at the end If I would have read this book as a child I m sure I would have enjoyed it and given it stars I bought this book in anticipation of the film coming out later this year.


    24. First book was strange but definitely memorable and endearing, and while I didn t enjoy the story that much, I can understand why it could be a classic The second lacked clear characters or setting and the third was a confusing series of stories within stories Would recommend just buying and reading first book only.


    25. I remember loving this story as a teen a number of decades ago and it is definitely a wonderful classic but reading it in the 21st century changes the experience I would recommend it to fans of Hitchhiker s Guide and Ender s Game.


    26. Overall I really enjoyed this series I feel like it really progressed from story to story, maturing even as the characters did I would definitely recommend it


    27. This was my second time reading this series as I had read it once in elementary school It was just as good as I remember.
