Great Book - The Time Traveler's Wife
So I gave in to the pressure and finally read The Time Traveler's Wife . My book club chose it this month, on my recommendation, and I finished it last night. Well, I loved it. It was beautifully written. I was afraid that the time travel would pose a "premise problem" for me. But it was not an issue at all. I was afraid it would be too sappy, but it wan not. The characters were flawed enough to be real. I highly recommend this book to all readers, but as one reader, the Erin, said - -it is a good Army Wife read, all the waiting, wondering and worrying made the plot relative.
On another note, the author is very anti-Kindle, so you have to actually buy or borrow this book. No download. Bummer. Also, I have heard the movie makes some changes that can frustrate readers. Haven't seen it yet. Don't know if I will.
And one more note - interestingly, this book takes place in Michigan and Chicago - two of my favorite places. The street references and the sights made the book a mini vacay to the Windy City for me. They even Eat at Ed's!
Enjoy - I did.
