Post subject:  The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

This has been sat on my reading pile for sometime and I am now two thirds of the way through - it is not one of those books that you can zip through, as I feel that the sadness and often disparate nature of it demands that you dip into it. Similar to how the protagonist dips in and out of time.

I wanted to recommend it but more importantly I wanted to see if anyone else had read it?

I particularly like the non-linear aspect of it but it is, as the same time, accessible and easy to follow.

No, not read this but I believe it will be out as a movie soon.

From reviews I saw when it was first published I felt that it would be similar to Molly Brown's Interzone story Bad Timing* so I'll wait for the movie.

*Interzone 54, December 1991; Winner of the British Science Fiction Award for Best Short Story of 1991. It was optioned but never filmed.

I loved it. It was interesting to see how a 'non-genre author' was so relaxed with the time travel aspect. Sometimes I think we genre folk feel a little too disposed worrying about adding explanations and the science behind such traits. I thought it was a great read...
