The Time Traveler's Wife

Have you read it or seen the movie? I just finished the book and loved it. I have to admit I watched the movie in the middle of reading the book, but this wasn't completely intentional. On my last trip I didn't take the book with me because I was told what a tear jerker it was and I didn't want to be crying in the middle of the airport as I read the book. I was half way through the book, dying to know what happens, and they ended up showing the movie on my flight. Of course the movie was different, but I enjoyed it. I still wanted to finish reading the book and I'm so glad that I did. The whole time traveling thing is really what caught my attention and made me when to read book. I wanted to know what that was all about. Well written and beautifully developed characters made this a wonderful read for me. What about you? What did you think?

stopping by from SITS because i saw your comment in the roll call. i just finished this book last night. i really liked it, although i wanted a bit more about clare at the end.

i've been trying to decide whether i want to see the movie. i've heard mostly bad things about it, and i'm really picky if i've read the book and the movie is quite different. we'll see.

I read this book years ago and LOVED it. You have to sort of get into the way story is laid out, but after that it's amazing. I remember sitting in a parking lot on my lunch break reading the end and bawling (like serious full out crying). These 2 guys came over from the auto shop from across the street to see if I was okay (the book was below eye level). It was the sweetest thing. I still haven't seen the movie, but I'm glad to hear you say that you liked both!

I LOVED the book. I've read it a couple of times now. It's just such a fantastic story and SO SAD... I haven't seen the movie yet but it's sitting on a ledge in my kitchen just calling to me.

"Watch me, you know you want to!"

"Sorry dear movie, not tonight. It's the LOST season premiere!" ;)

I cried my eyes out at the film - haven't read the book yet, though I mean to.

Visiting from SITS, hope you're having a great week.
