This book is amazing.,
This review is from: A Wrinkle in Time (Madeleine L'Engle's Time Quintet) (Paperback)
I read this book in about the 7th grade which was around four years ago. I loved this book when i read it. It combines fantasy and amazing writing into one book. I loved how Meg went to save her brother and father. This book is really truly amazing. When I review a book on amazon that i love, i like to look at the one star review and read why people did not like that certain book. I did the same with this book and learned that a lot of kids under the age of 13 were reading this book, and not enjoying it. They either said that they didn't understand it, and therefore it was boring, or that people can really tesser to another planet. If you do not understand a book, then you should put it down and read it a few years later. Those who stated that no one can really tesser to another planet or place are right, you can't, but this story is fiction, meaning it is not real.
thank you for your time
and i sincerely hope that
you read this book,

You give wise advice to readers! People should try again later if they don't get this book at first. Still, some people might like it at an earlier age; I read it when I was 11 or so (about a zillion years ago), and it was my favorite for a long time. I have a tantalizingly vague memory of it as a book of great mystery and wonder. I was thinking of re-reading "A Wrinkle in Time" as an adult to rediscover the awe I felt when I read it so many years ago.

I am in the same boat as you. I read the book in I believe the 6th grade, but it may have been 7th. I fell in love! I love both this book and "A wind in the door" I will admit I have trouble with "A swiftly tilting planet" and beyond but mostly I believe it is because I adore the dynamic between Meg Calvin and Charles Wallace and the books seem to skip so much time. But I adore the characters and the concepts so much that I am looking to put them on my kindle.

How very insightful of you! The same is true for me. I was an English lit major in college and found that I loved all the classics that I reread in college (yet hated the first time around in middle/high school). When I tell my friends how great the books are and that they should give these texts another shot they don't believe me! How sad! I'm glad at least one other person has figured it out!
