Anyone who has read this? Is it a comic book?

DH just went to the library to get it,they don't have it but he got me another of her books and he said it's a comic style thingy. Not really my usual kind of book.

I haven't read it yet but its on my book case. Its definately not a comic style book, its a proper novel.

Hmm ok thank you for that. I will orser it from Amazon maaybe. Quicker than waiting for the library to get it in lol.

Without doubt one of the best books I have ever read. You will not be able to put it down, my family were self sufficient for two whole days while I finished it!!

All my friends have read it and feel same way. Enjoy!

There was a thread yesterday about the film that's just out - mostly people were saying that they thought the characters weren't right. So I'd read the book first!

aGalChangedHerName Wed 29-Jul-09 12:04:24

Yes i am looking forward to it!!

Will be reading it on my hols next week.

Will read the book first too.

I've tried to read it twice now and not succeeded; tedious beyond belief!

Seems to be a Marmite book in that people love it or hate it.

Glad you got it, I loved it, going to re-re read it before the film comes out (as in read it for the 3rd time, I'm not slurring my words!)

Wish I had a DH who'd trawl the libraries for me. Not sure he's ever been in a library smile

LOL we are a family of readers thankfully so he doesn't mind.

He knew i really wanted it for our hols and he knows from past experience that it's good to keep his DW happy iykwim? wink

Loved it. Original and moving love story.

MrsOlf Sat 01-Aug-09 14:39:18

My DH bought me this when it first came out and I read it cover to cover (before DCs obviously...) I then read it again immediately!

cheapskatemum Tue 04-Aug-09 22:52:06

MrsOlf - me too! And I haven't done that since "6 Cousins at Mistletoe Farm" an Enid Blyton book I read aged about 8! Don't think I'll bother with the film though.

Also one of my fave books - ending very moving. Even my Dad said he was crying!!

Inspirachion Tue 04-Aug-09 22:55:38

The Time Travellers Wife is a perfect story IMO

trixymalixy Tue 04-Aug-09 23:02:22

Loved it. Cried my eyes out as well.

bruffin Tue 04-Aug-09 23:03:43

I loved it, but if anyone wants to read something similar The House on The Strand by Daphne Du Maurier is even better.

oneopinionatedmother Tue 04-Aug-09 23:07:25

love that book: read it.

OOh, am I going to be flamed? I didn't like it. Thought he had a touch of a "groomer" about him (in the paedophile sense). Thought it was a tad pretentious, and even racist. Also a bit facile.

Mind you, I still read it all and was gripped so male of that what you will grin

donttrythisathome Wed 05-Aug-09 20:43:06

make, not male.

OrmIrian Wed 05-Aug-09 20:44:14


Hate hate hate that book!


Hated all the characters. Wasn't interested in them at all.

OrmIrian Wed 05-Aug-09 20:45:21

bruffin - House on the Strand is a lovely book. Much much better than Time Travellers [spit} wife!
