I read this book a couple of years ago - twice. As soon as I finished it I read it again (the only book I've ever done that with) - I really enjoyed it and reading it the second time cleared up some points I'd not grasped on the first read through. Well worth a read.Read moreLess
"Am I the only one that didn't think it was brilliant?…"
I just felt that I wanted to post this as a balance to all the avid fans. I thought that it was a good read with an interesting and original plot but the age differences between the two main characters when they met in different times irritated me and I was glad when I finished it.Read moreLess
"All time favourite…"
This is my all time favourite book. You would think that reading about time travel could end up quite confusing, but it is so well written that you don't get lost with the plot. I couldn't put it down. It swept me away with the story, and although I'm not a big romance fan, it was really moving. I will read this again and again as its so beautifully written.Read moreLess
"Made me cry…"

Beautifully written, I knew the inevitable was going to happen and still I cried!! I don't read many books twice but im sure in time i'll return to this one. The characters were so vividly described and the story flowed at a very relaxing pace. Im not a fan of sci-fi so thought id be put off by the time travelling element but not at all as this didnt figure in any complex fashion. Read it, you wont be disappointed.Read moreLess

"This is my all time favourite book. Once you…"
This is my all time favourite book. Once you get the hang of the time travel aspect, where the characters are, and what age they are, you won't be able to put this book down.
I believe the film is coming out later this year so I will be interested to see how they handle the storyline and how faithful it remains to the original story.
Thoroughly recommended! READ IT!Read moreLess

"I enjoyed this book immensely, despite a slow start and…"
I enjoyed this book immensely, despite a slow start and my mathematician's cynicism at the concept of time travel. However, I was fascinated by the way the difficult plot entwined itself around the central theme of love, real romantic love, with a sense of inevitability and intuition that I instantly recognised. I found myself thinking 'If it happens, this is how'. The emotional depth of the story, which left me sobbing at times, was ofset by the comical and witty details, the earthy and frequent sex, and the occasional shocking act of violence. The author also captured beautifully the sense of desperation at trying to conceive, and the heartbreak of miscarrying. This book resonated with me through and through, and I loved it.Read moreLess
"Amazingly well written novel. It really keeps you gripped right…"
Amazingly well written novel. It really keeps you gripped right to the very end and the travelling back and forth in time keeps the pace fast and the pages turning. It is one of the best books ive read in a long time and i am not easily pleased, especially when it comes to 'love' stories.Read moreLess

From the marketing, I thought I'd hate this so was steering clear - but a friend bought me a copy so there was no escape. And I loved it: wept buckets from about 50 pages before the end until it was all over. Very clever and very moving.Read moreLess

"I've read this book through at least five times now,…"
I've read this book through at least five times now, crying and laughing my way from beginning to end. I'm a huge reader and consume at least 1 book a week, but this has to be my all time favourite. It's classic romance, with a wonderful twist, old fashioned long-distance love, but in a new and interesting direction. This is a must read!Read moreLess
