Time Traveler's Wife

I rented The Time Traveler's Wife on Netflix recently and was pleasantly surprised how close the movie was to the book. As an avid reader, I'm always a little wary on how a books is translated in film. You never know how it's going to turn out. Often times, the director's butcher the storyline, others they leave out crucial points in the plot, but in my humble opinion, this one delivered a pretty accurate rendition of the story.

If you haven't read it yet - The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger is an unusual, clever and creatively written love story that literally follows a love through time. I thought Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana had great chemistry onscreen and closely resembled what I'd pictured for the main characters: Henry DeTamble and Claire Abshire. Add it to your Netflix queue and see for yourself!

My very own Mr. Darcy loooooves both the book and the movie. But he refuses to tell anyone other than me. He also loves The Notebook. Don't tell ;-)

I actually very much prefer the movie over the book!

I'm an avid reader but somehow the book contains way too much drop-words. The movie is much simpler and moving. I loved it!
