Yep, the world would be entirely boring if we all liked the same thing.

It's a bit of a struggle, but I'm hanging in there still. It's not completely painful :wink:

An OK book, interesting concept & I would probably give it a 6/10 rating.

My test of a really good read is did I put it on my shelf & plan to re-read it in the future & I'm afraid it went straight to the Oxfam shop!

But that's just my opinion.

My housemate literally FORCED me to read it, however I'm glad she did, it was great, although I wouldn't say it's a favourite, probably 7/10.

I read this book on a rainy Sunday morning. I loved it so much that I reread it again that afternoon.

Unfortunately the second time through I became bothered by some problems (as far as I saw it) in the plot. I mean if the guy travelled through time then either he should have ended up in exactly the same place but at a different time (so no spacial displacement) or you could argue that if he travelled in time and the earth moved then he should end up somewhere different but predictable.

But it just seemed to be completely random. And that bothered me. It was well written though.

I didn't actually understand any thing about it, and it had been awhile since I'd read the recount on the back, so I just leapt into it. I am nearly finished with it because I too can't put it down.

It is a love story about a man with a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel unpredictably, and about his wife, an artist, who has to cope with his frequent absences and dangerous experiences.

Its a very good novel written by an american author.
