The Time Travelers Wife

I read The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger last year after beeing urged by both my wife and by my mother. A romantic story of love, loss and free will in that modern you-obviously-learned-to-write-in-the-author-academy style that is so perfect and easy to read and lacks that little something great litterature used(?) to have.

Great book. Cried like baby. Felt cleansed then. Felt dark planet turn under my feet and knew what cats know that make them cry like babies in night.

Just saw the movie with the wife. It's not as good as the book, obviously, but it's a great movie. Romantic like, perfect for a first or N'th date with someone you're serious about. It did make me cry though, so if you tend to do that and feel unmanned by such displays of emotion it might be better to steer away from this one the first few dates ;)
