A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle

Title: A Wrinkle in Time

Author: Madeleine L'Engle

Published: London : Longmans Young Books, 1963

Pages: 245

Series: Book 1, Time Series

Snippet:"We look not at the things which are what you would call seen, but at the things that are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporal. But the things that are not seen are eternal."

Summary: Meg's father mysteriously disappears after experimenting with the fifth dimension of time travel. Determined to rescue him, Meg and her friends must outwit the forces of evil on a heart-stopping journey through space and time. (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A Wrinkle in Time is a magical children's book that explores time travel in a simple but thoroughly enjoyable way. I think that if you like fantasy and science fiction then you'll enjoy A Wrinkle in Time.

The characters were all very unique and very interesting.  I have to say I found Meg to be really annoying though.  Charles Wallace was very intriguing though.

A Wrinkle in Time is quite a magical little story and it doesn't take very long to read at all.  While yes it is a children's book I think that if you have a good imagination and are open-minded then you'll definitely enjoy A Wrinkle in Time.

There's not a lot more to say about A Wrinkle in Time other than it was extremely pleasant and an enjoyable read.  I think it's a book that people should read at least once in their lives.
