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!

ooooh, I LOVE that book! That is one book that had the tears streaming down my face. I hope they capture it right in the movie!

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.
