Has anyone seen The Time Traveler's Wife? I am dying to hear from someone what they thought of it. I personally can't go see it because it is one of my most beloved books and I can't stand the thought of it being made dumb and sappy like Under the Tuscan Sun.
I don't usually review books, and I don't usually recommend this one to friends because it has some seriously bad language.
The story of Claire and Henry though speaks straight to my heart. To me it's a metaphor for how love can be desperately hard and how what you love about a person can be intrinsically wrapped up in their weaknesses. It reminds me that love isn't bound by time, that it's eternal, and that it is worth the waiting and worrying and helplessness you can sometimes feel.
And that my friends is why I don't like to review books. Way too much sappy information. Sorry.
Let me make it up to you by RECOMMENDING two of my other all time favorite love stories. These are re-readers for sure.
The Samurai's Garden
And a majorly favorite love movie.
What Dreams May Come.
