Daughter # 4 insisted that I read the book The Time Traveler's Wife. It's a 2003 novel by Audrey Niffenegger. I did not want to read it because first, I just bought some mushy-romantic-books on sale at a bookstore, and second, "time traveling?".. please!! Daughter # 4 was adamant. Mom you've got to read the book. The movie stars Eric Bana and it will premiere in December. Still, I did not read the book. I was browsing her multiply site when I chanced upon exchanges between daughter #4 and some members of Cullen's Coven. The gist of the written exchanges was that they cannot wait to see TTTW movie and, as a matter of fact, are more excited to watch TTTW than Twilight. What? How can that be? I was intrigued and borrowed daughter #4's copy.

It took me a longer time than usual to finish the novel. I had to turn back pages and look for specific dates and ages of Henry and Clare. I finished the book a while back. Is the book any good? Suffice to say I cried and felt so much regret in the love story that was Henry and Clare. Here are two links that you might find useful. Link one is a no-nonsense summary of the book. Click HERE. Link two is a book review. Click HERE. What can I say? Audrey Niffenegger is a genius.

    It's a great book! I've been pushing them to my friends since then but they seem reluctant to because of the dates and ages that could be confusing daw...but I didn't find it confusing at all...I loved it!!!!

    This is way out of the Twilight saga..those are completely different reads... JMHO. =_=
