    1. I had never read these books when I was a kid, but had noticed them on many "must read" lists. Good beginner books for science fiction, but not really my cup of tea.

    2. This book first came on my radar several months ago when a woman in our church small group mention it. I was intrigued as I’ve found very few Christian sci-fi books. I put this on my wish list and my sister gave it to me for Christmas. Thanks Sis!When my Facebook published the announcement that I started reading this quintet, one of my co-workers told me that he remembered having it read to his 3rd grade class. Wow! I thought that this is advanced, mind-bending stuff for 3rd grade. He also sa [...]

    3. a great series of bookswrinkle in time: "an epic story of adventure, for the plain and the simple child i read it in fourth grade, and so is my daughter. so we are re reading it together. it teaches children about Propaganda and its miss use"Wind In the Door Way: How megan and Charles were able to save a magical world from distruction.Swiftly tilting planet: the story of Charles and how a poem allows him to learn a process to save the world. Many waters : The twin brothers have an adventures tha [...]

    4. A Wrinkle in Time tells the tale of Meg Murry, her family and a trio of celestial beings who travel through time and space in order to rescue Meg’s scientist father, Charles, from evil forces on a distant planet.Although written in 1962, many themes remain relevant - teen insecurity, abandonment, the strength of love. A Wrinkle in Time gave us a science nerd heroine, an assumption that kids/ adolescents could understand intelligent writing, and a dip into fantasy/science fiction that was ahead [...]

    5. Listened to this set on audiobooks downloaded from iTunes. Only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 was not appreciating the prolific biblical overtures. I'd forgotten how much was in these books. Funny how the author who wrote the "the golden compass" got blasted for atheist stuff, but the children's books full of Christian mythology are left alone. Im open minded about all belief systems, so I'm not affected but in these books I felt it detracted rather than added to the beauty of the stories.

    6. I started reading this because I thoight I was the only person in North America who didn't read A Wrinkle in Time as a childbut as soon as I began reading, I recognized it. Well, it's worth reading again.

    7. A Wrinkle in Time is good, beginner scifi. A bit heavy on the anti-communism theme, perhaps, but a good start. Unfortunately the other books in this "series" are a disappointment.A Wind in the Door is a worthy sequel, but the science is very shaky. The plot is continued, however. The same can't be said of the remainder of the books.A Swiftly Tilting Planet starts the decline, as the multiple time periods with similarly named characters are more confusing than necessary. Many Waters takes the Chr [...]

    8. This "sort-of" science fiction series (the author herself is no fan of the genre) centers on the Murray family, who live in New England in the latter half of the 20th century. Everyone in the family is a unique, gifted individual, but all the stories focus primarily upon the children and their reactions to outlandish events involving time and space.The books blend elements of religion, myth, legend and history, but mainly focus on how each of the children in the stories are forced to rely on the [...]

    9. This series is a huge disappointment. I was hoping L'Engle had written additional books extending her original trilogy. Instead it was a marketing decision to add two poor sellers to her trilogy to increase sales. The last two books have nothing to do with the first three and although time is an element there were not written as part of the trilogy and don't hold up to the excellence of the first three books. Stick with the original three they are delightful. The last two just don't deserve to b [...]

    10. A wrinkle in time was a good book because it had a lot of action and suspence. It had a good plot and was hard to stop reading.A Wrinkle in time is about a girl named meg and a little boy named charles and there father who works for NASA was sent to a planet named Camozotz and he is trapped in a transparent colum. One day Meg and Charles go for a walk then they meet a boy named calvin. Then the meet the three W's. Then they tessered to a hole bunch of planets. Then they finaly go to camozotz. Th [...]

    11. I know I'm outside the target age group for this book, so my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt. I've heard for YEARS how enthralling and spectacular this series is, how it was so imaginative and beautiful, etc. I was unimpressed; to me the narrative is not nearly as complex as it was made out to be, and the metaphors and philosophy weren't so much deep, as heavy handed. It was finely executed, and not a bad read, but the 5 books in the series, read after one another, become tedious be [...]

    12. As a series it is entertaining and perfectly harmless for children. For an adult it is a bit preachy with a major shift in tone from book three to book 4. Interesting characters populate the first three books, but after that they become much less interesting. Throughout the series L'Engle creates interesting worlds filled with wonder. Recommend for kids not so much for adults, but Wrinkle in Time is definitely worth a read.

    13. The book was a little confusing at first, but forces you to use your imagination. Some parts just were not credible enough to be believable for an adult. I liked that the main character, who seems to be lacking so much in many areas, becomes the hero. I understand why the book is such a great kids story and I will probably use it in my classes.

    14. The first three books are amazing. The fourth is, too, once you get over the character shift. The fifth is much better if you've read all of the Austin family books as well so you will know Polly and Zachary. Otherwise you won't care about the story.

    15. I find the Time Quintet to be a wonderful, attention drawing series. At times, I felt as though the action was a little slow, but the results make up for it. I was sticking my face into these books and never coming out until I had read the book cover to cover. Definitely a bunch of good reads.

    16. I will always be grateful to A Swiftly Tilting Planet to getting me in to L'Engle--I don't know what made me want to reread it suddenly, but then I had to do all five!

    17. This set me on the path to my love of Urban sci-fi fantasy mystery/detective reading preferences. Will always look back fondly on the discovery of these timeless (pun intended) stories.

    18. Wrinkle in Time Quintet by Madeleine L’Engle Wrinkle in Time - Excellent quick action packed read. Although it’s labeled as YA, it’s very relevant and compatible to all ages. Great concept and use of action, suspense, science, and adventure to create a story that captivates and keeps the reader engaged. Fun, whimsical, and engaging characters with great struggle and conflict between all the characters. Great tie in to use universal themes to allow all readers to relate and identify with ou [...]

    19. This is all five books in the quintet, so I should probably provide a short review for each of them. Taken as a whole, this series is a beautiful read in line with the Chronicles of Narnia when it comes to combining SciFi/Fantasy with Christian teachings.A Wrinkle in Time - the first, and easily the best book in the series. At a high level, this book covers good vs. evil, light vs. darkness, love vs. hate, and the subtleness of self-centered sin and how it can tempt us away from the light and in [...]

    20. BlissI read WRINKLE IN TIME QUINTET at age 77 and was transported to about age 9. At first I was mad that I missed these books when I was nine, but what a total delight to suspend disbelief and join the Murrys in my old age.

    21. Prøvde meg på disse som E-bøker. Nå er jeg på 37% (begynnelsen av tredje bok) og det tar ikke slutt. Det bare varer. Bare min kompulsive trang til å gjøre ting å gjøre ting ferdig kunne drive meg til å lese så langt. Du, derimot, trenger ikke gjøre samme feilen.

    22. See my individual book reviews for the Time Quintet. From a pop culture perspective I’m glad I finally read these books, but I probably won’t ever read them again. They’re very likely much more enjoyable as a kid than as an adult.

    23. I slowly collected all these books. I enjoyed everyone of them! Some became a little strange from outer space to the tiny inner workings of cells to going back in time. I love the combination of science and fantasy!

    24. Read two books from the quintet - no reason to continue. Thought the second started better than the first, perhaps because characters were familiar.Guess I'm too old for this series.

    25. My goodness, it took me an immense amount of time to get through these five books! I wanted to re-read the first one since the film is coming out and I remembered enjoying it as a child.

    26. the charcters in the book raliy made you care about them. you cant pot down the book untall you finish it the book it it self you mit think it is a bad book becuse it look rally werd but whin you pik it up it is wary intusting.
