Book Review

As mentioned on the weekend, I bought a stack of books to read (and one cookbook). The book I chose to read first was The Time Traveler’s Wife (is it just me or do they spell Traveller wrong in America? Anyway…).

So I started reading it Sunday night, read a bit more Monday night, then Tuesday night, then I finished it this evening.

Mind you, last night I was accused of not reading fast enough. Didn’t know I was on a schedule. I was told that I wasn’t reading as fast as usual, and that he watches how fast I am reading. I didn’t know reading was a spectator sport!

Back to the book. I liked it, the concept was unusual which is always a nice change, but I have to say I did not like the ending. I know I know, it shouldn’t always be sweetness and light but dammit! I read to be entertained and I want to be happy when I’m done. Actually, the ending kind of ruined the book for me.

I will say I could totally picture Eric Bana as Henry, and I think he will be very good in the movie, but I won’t be going to see it.

So should you read it? Yes… probably.

    Traveler is one of those words that can be spelled either way – 1 or 2 l's. Like canceled. or Cancelled. Either is acceptable.

    Sorry you were disappointed. Perhaps you should write to the author as well as the publisher so that never happens again.

    I keep thinking I have read that book, but I can't remember for sure.

    Now if that book had ended all happy and sweet I would have hated it. I'm not too sure about Eric Banner but I'll let you know what I think when I go an see it, because I will definitely be seeing it. What book next?

    Hi Tracey,

    The end was sad and shocking wasn't it?
    I wrote a review on this book you might like to read:

    I read it and felt the same. It's the same reason I won't go and see Jodi Piccoult's (sp?) My Sister's Keeper – I HATED the end of that book.
