It's Just My Opinion

The Time Traveler's WifeThe Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book was very hard to follow. It's a very interesting concept - time travel. But I never completely understood how the author envisioned it. Were there two of him? I would have thought there would be one being who occasionally disappeared from his present to travel to another time. But how does that explain there being two of the same person in the same room, which happens frequently in the book.

Actually, for the most part, it was interesting, but I just never completely understood, and the ending was sad. I'm going to watch the movie and see if it becomes any clearer. It's also got quite a few passages of a sexual nature that make me feel uncomfortable knowing that my step-daughter read it. Oh, well.

I've seen the movie and have the book but haven't read it yet. Even having watched the movie I was afraid I might be confused!

I have been wanting to see the movie. I hope it's not too hard to follow.

the movie was okay. do you think you will watch it to see if it clears up any of the book?

Sounds like I'll skip the book and try the movie.

I started the book but never finished it, and I'm not really motivated to see the movie. You'll have to let us know what you think of it.
