A must-read; a probably should-see

TTWIf you haven’t already, pick up a copy of The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and read it. Before you go see the movie. It’s brilliant.

Could you even imagine what it would be like to travel back and forth in time? To see yourself younger and older. To meet your spouse and children well before they are your spouse and children. To know what’s coming. To know what’s coming and not be able to stop it.

It’s a catch-22. Both horrible and wonderful at the same time.

If you can’t read the novel, maybe go see the movie. Like all books-turned-movies, the cinematic effort doesn’t quite match the power of the pen, as it’s tough to bring well-developed, written characters to the big screen. Particularly in 107 minutes.

But, you should probably go see it anyway. Two thumbs up to Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams.
