The book a wrinkle in time is quite the book to read. i myself write stories and i once in a while remember parts from the book a wrinkle in time when i read it. i don't remember so much about the book because i am old of age and this is what happens to my memory, but i do remember that it was a creative book. (i need to re-read that book sometime soon.) after reading that this book is on the banned book list, i was fascinated in how some can be so blind about things. i am pretty sure that not all authors want to add religous subjects to their books! books are not all about that. when people began speaking of C.S. Lewis's chronicles of Narnia books, and how they were religion related, i got very angry. this is not the point of all books. if an author meant to speak of this subject in their books, they would speak of it. a book can't be simply enjoyed without thinking of religion of political matters? this is what novels are for. these are simple ficton stories that are about unknown worlds and learning to face fears! not about those matters! i believe that these books are written to take one to another world and a new time, not concentrate on one that already exists!

Mary J., December 12, 2006 (view all comments by Mary J.)
I am 49 years old. I read "A Wrinkle in Time" when I was eleven, and it was a life-changing experience. In 1968 a little girl with strength, courage and brains was still a rather new idea, even "inside the Beltway," which is where I grew up. This book helped me find my way at a time when I really had no idea where I was going. It helped me to understand that intelligence, success, and the love of humanity were not just within my grasp, but absolutely vital. It also fueled in me the breathtaking notion that reality itself holds limitless surprises and possibilities just waiting for us to discover.
As an adult, I began to realize that most of my favorite friends had also read this book as children. I find myself drawn to people of all ages who are bright, idealistic, creative, loving, and have a strong sense of justice--much like Meg, the heroine of "A Wrinkle in Time." Did we read the book because it suited our personalilities, or did the book help us to crystallize those traits in ourselves? Probably a bit of both.
Several years ago, I re-read this book and some of the others in the series, and I was still enthralled. Madeleine L'engle has written some wonderful books that have withstood the test of time. I can't wait until my five-year-old son is old enough to read "A Wrinkle in Time." I think he will love it.
