One of My Favorite Books Has Been Made Into a Movie!

I first read The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger sometime during the winter of 2004~2005. I fell in love with the book right away, although it took a few chapters to wrap my head around the somewhat confusing premise ~ Henry meets Claire for the first time when he is 28 and she is 20, yet she has known him since she was six. Basically, it is the story of a couple in love who together cope with Henry’s uncontrollable time travel and his sudden appearances into and disappearances out of Claire’s life. It is a fabulous book that never fails to make me cry every time I read it.

I recently discovered that the book has been made into a movie staring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, set to open August 14th. I can’t wait to see how this wonderful love story transfers to film, and encourage anyone who plans on watching the movie to read the book first. You won’t regret it!

Oh FANTASTIC!!!! Can't wait!

Although, I would recommend people see the movie first and then read the book. That way you aren't disappointed with what they did wrong in the movie.
