I liked it well enough especially the first part of the book. I thought the characters of Meg, Calvjn, and Charles Wallace were quite well done and I enjoyed them as characters. I definitely thought that Calvin should have his own book. The Mrs Ws were, not gonna lie, a little creepy and more than a little cRAzy(like a bag full of cats) However the plotstory went very odd after a while. Kinda like Terry Prachett's book ( "The Wee Free Men" and " A Hat Full of Sky") Hoping desperately that it would sort itself out, I read on. And finished the book still wondering how and why and WHAT. The path that the book took sent me off into another world, which in above itself is awesome and not bad at all, but when I can't enjoy said world because I'm so darn confused as to what on earth is going on. Well, that is when it becomes not good at all. I've read a lot of books and some that could be construed as very odd indeed, but this one was on a whole other level. Also, plot holes and such abounded. Sci-fi and working it for sure. I liked that she tried, Oh, how she tried!, to make the science and the "magical crazy" fit together. The imagination that went into these books considering they were written a while ago is commendable. That being said: This book and series are not my favorites and very strange. The 3 stars I gave it came from imagination, originality, characterization and such linked things.
