‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ by Audrey Niffenegger

This turned out to be a pretty good book.  A little hard to comprehend in the beginning how the whole time traveling thing works and what the rules are with it.  The fact that he arrives everywhere naked and no one seems to mind was a tad disturbing.  Great story, but you may shed some tears.  Suprisingly, the movie didn’t butcher the book terribly bad, accounting for the fact they obviously can’t show every part of the book. 

Four out of five stars.

  2. I did not read the book. I did watch the movie. It was odd. He gets naked a lot. What’s up with that? Marty McFly never showed up naked in 1955. Bill and Ted always had clothing in the phonebooth.

  3. This is also on my list of books to read … it sounds like a great read (although I agree, the whole lack of clothes is a little weird). I want to read the book before I see the movie. Great blog – I enjoyed reading it! Will have to keep checking back!
