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.
