I plan to read the book. Our library has a reserve list for it.

I have to admit that I saw the movie, and after seeing the movie, I was a little disappointed in the storyline. Movies usually do not live up to the novels they were based on, but regardless, it made me not want to read the novel.

It's advisable to read the book before seeing the movie, though the movie is only based on the book and it's usually different and full of cinematic effects. I suppose it could be compared to watching different versions of a movie- they're all different but based on the same storyline.

Yes, I couldn't agree with you more. However, I watched the movie because I was bored (plus I like the actors in it).

The Time Traveler's Wife. I can't remember where I saw it in the thread, but I'm pretty sure that's the one we're talking about.

I am not. I cannot add another book right now. But hope that the people who are reading it enjoy it.

I could read. I know we have it here at the library. Most people that have read it, didnt' quite like it. The structure of the book wasn't all that cracked up to be. But, I'll give it a try. It was the Time Traveler's Wife right?

Yeah that's the one. It jumps around a fair bit but I think it's a good read.

Post Re: Who is reading or plans to read this book?
Oh, that book.

It's been sitting in my massive "to be read" pile for a year or so.

The "peoples" :D in one of my other more serious literary clubs really dissed it something awful. The general consus there was "don't bother". Described it as "phenomenally uninteresting".

I wish I learned all that BEFORE I bought it. :(

Booklady,

The name of the forum is always the book title.

Look near the top of the page for the line that looks like this...

I'm thinking about reading this book. I saw the movie and am hoping the book is better. I don't know still contemplating... Does anyone know if its better than the movie?

Read the book and I had to read three more books before I had it out of my head. I would participate.
