The Time Traveler’s Wife (A book and movie review)

A few years ago I was in south Texas visiting the family and my sister took me to a local used book store.  I love book stores!  While I was browsing through the books I came across The Time Traveler’s Wife.  I had seen a review for this book on the Today Show so I thought I would give it a try

I will have to say this would be one of my all time favorite books.  So much so that in the two years I have had it I have read it three times!  When I let someone borrow it and then I get it back I start thumbing through it and then start reading it again.  It is a well written book and I have recommend it to several people.

After I read it the first time I looked up the author trying to find more books by her.  What I found out was that a movie was being made.  I was not as excited as you would think.  Personally I find that when a book is made into a movie it never does the book justice, so I tend not to like the movie (ie: The Notebook).  I much rather read a book then see the movie any day!time travelers wife movieTonight I went with Big Sister and a few friends to see the movie – I have to say I was not disappointed.  They did not stray from the book’s plot.  A few chucks here and there were left out, but it is a two hour movie so they did the best they could with the time they had.  I still say read the book then see the movie.  You will have a better understand of the characters throughout the movie.

Have you read the book?  Did you see the movie?  What are your thoughts on Time Traveler’s Wife (Book or Movie)?

    Loved the book so much! Thanks for recommending it! I probably wouldn’t have been as big a fan of the movie if I hadn’t read the book first, so I ended up loving the movie and crying the whole time. Such a sweet story.

    I saw the movie… have not read the book.

    I gotta tell ya…it didn’t do much for me. I am normally a big sap and cry at EVERYTHING… but I didn’t get *really* into it.

    I SO want to see Julie and Julia. Have you seen it?

    God bless-
