Re: Marty's Reaction to Jennifer Leaving

To me the reaction was completely strange. If my new spouse suddenly told me over the phone they needed to go away for that amount of time I would not just happily say no problem! There would be so many questions. It's not a case of not trusting them but making sure they will be ok and safe while away - especially if I couldn't contact them. And using the phone? Far too impersonal. But maybe that's just me....

I haven't read this book, so I'm not exactly sure the exact context of the conversation, but could it be he knew her so well he didn't have to ask because he expected her decision, or was he so stunned he didn't know how to react?

It was minimal and the author should develop it more.

Maybe Marty trusted her enough not to ask any questions.
