The Time Traveler's Wife



One of my favorite novels from the last 10 years is The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffeneger. The plot is like nothing I had ever encoutered before. It was such an intriguing read and I found myself glued to the pages every night. It’s been a staple of many book clubs and it’s easy to see why when you are drawn into the story.

Well, last night I learned that the novel has been made into a film starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, two actors I really like. Yea! It’s scheduled for release August 14. I’m curious as to how they’re going to incorporate some of the time traveling aspects into the film (it’s not like "Back to the Future," believe me). The story is so beautiful – I hope the film does it justice.

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I haven't read that one yet, but I am going to make sure I do before the movie comes out.

Thanks for the heads up!

I was at the cinema last night and the trailer for this movie looked really good.....I heard that the book is amazing and I think I would like to read it before I see the movie.

This is one of my most favorite books EVER! Such a beautiful love story!! I have been waiting forever to see the movie. Brad & Jen bought the rights to the film back when they were still married!! I think that Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana are excellent choices for the main roles. I hope the movie does the book justice as well. It looks like it's going to great!

I am reading Julie and Julia and it is fantastic! Dying to see this in the theater as well.
