How will each of these help Meg, Calvin and Charles Wallace find Mr Murry? What is the danger? What or who will they be meeting?
Meg is clearly displeased as her faults get her IN TO trouble all the time so she doesn’t know how they could ever be used for good. I think that her impatience will probably be one of the things that will help her overcome whatever they come up against.
It is difficult to know what ‘the resilience of childhood’ means for Charles Wallace. I think that perhaps because he is so young, if something really terrible happens he is young enough to not remember it or for it to have little impact on him.
What do you think?
Why do you think everyone on Camazotz seems to do everything in the same rhythm like robots? Are they being controlled in some way? They are scared of something or someone. Why?
This becomes even more dangerous and strange when Charles Wallace realises that he can’t get in to their minds. When they finally speak to the boy they realise that they will only get answers by going to the CENTRAL central intelligence.
Calvin sums up the horror that they are about to face saying, “I’ve got another feeling. Not the same kind, a different one, a feeling that if we go into the building we’re going into terrible danger.”
Would you go inside?
