I am halfway through reading The Time Traveler's Wife, and I don't want to put it down! I admit I did see the movie first, and it made me want to read the book. But, oh, the book is much better than the movie (as is often the case)! The romance, the love, comes through much stronger in the book and you can't help but get swept up in it!
Of course, I can't help but visualize the characters and scenes from the movie. That is one of the downsides to seeing the movie first. You can't create your own image in your mind. But, the movie was beautiful, so I can't really complain! I think I'll be watching it again after I finish the book.
