I liked this book but I couldn't help but wonder what happened to the understanding, adventurous people who seemed to constantly have interesting things happen them and their children. The Murry parents are almost unrecognizable in this book!

What about when Mr. Murry was stranded on another planet? Or, when Charles Wallace was ill and Meg and crew 'fixed' him? How about when the twins went thru to another time? Since when did the Murrys not believe in the incredible and unbelievable?

I guess that Mr. & Mrs. Murry have gone from being parents who allow their kids to have adventures to grandparents who are afraid of every shadow and restrictive of their granddaughter.

So, while I like the story, I was a bit disgusted with the Murrys!
