WEEK FIVE - 'THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE'
'The Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger
January 27 - 29, 518 pages
This isn't the type of book I would normally read. I guess I wanted to have a go at something different.
It was alright. I'm not really into romantic stuff. There was a bit too much of 'I love you, always. Time is nothing.' And sex. Far out they were always having sex.
But it wasn't too bad. It was very easy and quick to read, except that you needed to concentrate on the date and ages of the characters noted at the beginning of each chapter in order to not be completely confused. I liked jumping around in time, trying to organise a timeline in my mind while I was reading.
I like the concept. It's a pretty good book, I would have preferred it less lovey-dovey, though.
Now I'm tossing up whether or not I should see the movie...
