The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Once upon a time things were much different around here. I had one dog who liked to sleep all day, no job, a new husband who worked first shift and on this particular day a good book.  I woke up early to kiss my hard working husband goodbye, layed down on the couch ( we don’t have one of those anymore either) and started reading The Time Travelers Wife. Many hours later he got home from work and I was still laying on the couch saying “shhh don’t talk I only have a few pages left!” Ever since when ever this book comes up John tells about how he went to work with my reading it on the couch and how I was still there when he came home.  Which is clearly ridiculous, I’m sure I got up to eat and pee at least once while he was gone.

I just re-read this book and while circumstances have changed (two crazy dogs, three kids, husband on second shift and no couch) it took me two days to read this time and I still loved it.

Clara is sleeping on the chair downstairs tonight because the thunder keeps getting in her ears.

Would I recommend it? For certain. I know there is a movie out there. I’m never watching it. The book is perfect. Don’t see the movie, read the book.

    Have you read ‘her fearful symmetry’?? by the same author. So good too. Actually might be better. Might even be a stay up all night and read it kinda book.
    I read and saw te movie. Both were good. Book is always better. But I like to see the movies too.

      I have read her fearful symmetry, I’m hit or miss on the book blogs though, apparently that one was a miss!
      I actually didn’t like that one as much as Time Travelers Wife, still good writing but I think I prefer time travel to ghosts. Also I remember being disgusted with a certain character near the end of the book, I won’t go into details for fear of spoiling things for someone but it was definately an “awe seriously!” moment for me!
