” A book is a Man’s Best Friend “
How are you doing…Well I am doing well & besides all the activities going on in my life I still felt something was being left out…After pondering for a while I realised that I am missing my reading habit…Lately I have been caught up in the love for make up bt before that came along my 1st love was always book reading.
So I think some of you out there still read & enjoy the essence of reading…I am thinking about starting a good book really soon…but today I have decided to review a book that I read an year ago bt I still remember how much I enjoyed it.
It started one afternoon I was watching TV with my sis in law when I saw a very eye catching trailer of a movie coming soon ..I should mention here that if a movie is based on a book then that movie catches my xtra attention as well coz i just love movies based on books & novels.So the movie was called ” The Time Traveller’s Wife “.This name was familiar to me as I had already bought the book a month ago bt hadnt read it..so I aimed for that book 🙂

Something about the Book :
It starts off like this :
Clare: It’s hard being left behind.I wait for Henry,not knowing where he is ,wondering if he’s okay?
It’s hard to be the one who stays…..
So girls what do you think this is about Ok i ll tell you:
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.
My Thoughts about it :
As I was hooked to this after reading the Prologue of the book :this book is amongst my Favourite books.
Its the story of a woman who suffers in life due to the fact that his husband time travels without any notice in a single minute…He has a genetic disorder due to which he travels back & forth in time leaving his wife alone n stunned every now and then & then she has to wait uncountable hours for his return..I feel that this book is all about the strength & endurance that comes with Love.The characters of Henry & Clare are such that while reading the book the reader can fully transcend into them & can sympathize with them.The time traveller & his wife are shown passing through different phases of life..they are in love madly so they endure this curse i.e time travelling.
This book can not be categorized as science fiction.I would place it under the section that Says: The best heart touching books.
The book is mostly sad at times but then it is the theme of the book to feel what love makes you do & live with the hardships that come on its course one way or the other.It makes you laugh & cry as you go through the love story.
I would highly recommend this book to people who love to read a good book that stays in your minds as afresh as yesterday.
A small inscription by me at the end of my book.
In August 2009 the movie The Time Traveller’s Wife was released starring Eric Bana & Rachel McAdams .The movie is a very touch too & a good one to watch on a Saturday night .
I hope you all enjoyed reading.Stay Happy Always.
