The Time Traveler's Wife

I just read this book. This is the first book that I have done a post about, but I feel that I HAVE to. I LOVED it oh so much. This is the first book in a long time that got me hooked as soon as I finished the first page. I literally, physically could not put it down.

I love the way this book was written, Clare and Henry narrate in turn. We learn early on the Clare has known Henry since she was 6 years old. She knows Henry from her past and Henry knows Clare from his future. They meet in "present time" 1991 when Clare is 20 and Henry is 28.

I don't want to share too much information, because I want you all to run out and buy this book and read it and love it as much as I did.

I've never tried it because I keep hearing it is SO SAD. Maybe it's so good that the sadness is worth it??

Ok, now this is just weird. I'm writing this as anonymous because I like to keep some sense of internet privacy, but when I saw your comment the other day I realized I haven't come here in a bit so I wanted to catch up.

This is the project that I'm doing right now. THIS is why I've been away for 4.5 months. But you know what? After all this time, I still love the story :) So glad to hear that you did as well, and that you read it before the movie is finished!
