I love love loved that book! It's also a movie (currently in post production) starring Eric Bana as Henry.


I once got my hands on a whatchamacallit bookseller's freebie of that title, but never got around to reading it. Maybe I should.

I read it one Labour Day weekend on the deck overlooking the Saguenay in Tadoussac, Quebec, glass of wine in hand. Very good book and very pleasant memories of reading it.


I loved that book, and really didn't expect to!It wasn't the type of story I normally read. I have Middlesex in my pile of unread books, along with Kite runner and the Golden compass series.


I enjoyed it but found it a little TOO confusing. I had trouble keeping everything straight about who and what and when.....I wonder what the movie will be like.


Absolutely loved this book. It was excellent! (I also loved Middlesex).


This is on my top ten list of fav books. Adored it and sobbed big ugly tears at the end. Passed it on to hubby who also loved it but did not sob.


This is one of my favorite books of all time!! I also put off reading it for a long time. The minute I finished, I turned back to the first page to re-read it. I just LOVED Henry. It does take a little while to figure out the back-and-forth of the timing, but it's worth it. I've been putting off reading Middlesex too, but based on your review, I'll probably read it.


I liked it a lot, too, but unfortunately, I had bad morning sickness (baby is 16 mo. now!) two summers ago when I read it and now I always associate that book with nausea. Isn't that weird? I remember lying in the baby pool on our deck and reading it while the then 2-yr.-old took his nap. Thanks for the book memory!


My sister-in-law gave me the TTW and it haunted me for years because I couldn't get into it. I took it on a plane, and fell in love with it. I still think about it. I might read it again.

Also loved Middlesex, and have The Virgin Suicides on this summer's list.

I finished Anne Patchett's Run yesterday and wish I could start it again.

Karen, I was one of the people who INSISTED you must read Time Traveler's Wife! I read it years ago and absolutely loved it, but when I heard Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston (then married) bought the rights to the book I nearly cried. Glad you liked it.
