Okay, okay -- I'm reading it! Yes, I had heard that it was wonderful. Many people said it's the best book that they ever read. I know, I know. I had resisted -- mainly because I heard that the sexual content was fairly strong. But I'm about halfway into it, and either it gets worse, or I have a higher threshold than some people. Nonetheless, I'm enjoying it thoroughly, although I think it should have been called Henry and Clare. Anyone else? The Time Traveler's Wife makes me think too much of The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve. And it's not really just about Clare. It's about Henry and Clare.
My fellow 5 Minutes for Books reviewer Dawn, who I also consider a good bloggy friend now, is the one who really sold me. You have to read her funny (you can laugh at her -- I don't think she minds) account at her own blog my thoughts exactly about seeing the movie. Then you can also check out her more professional review of the book and the movie at Books on Screen. If you've seen it, or haven't seen it, but want to -- or have vowed never to see it, weigh in over there.
And let me know what you think of my alternate title right here (but no spoilers since I haven't read the end).
