Have you seen it yet? I haven’t been able to and it’s just killing me. The Time-Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger just came out in theaters and I’m torn. I loved the book and I can’t imagine any possible way that the movie could be as good.
If you loved the story, here are a few suggestions to keep you busy while you debate whether or not to see the film. If you want a tale of love in the midst of great trials, try Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier. Inman, a soldier makes his way home to North Carolina from a Civil War hospital while his love, Ada, waits for him.
If you like a bit of magic mixed in with a great story, you might like The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde or Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel. The Eyre Affair is a mystery set in a surreal version of Great Britain in 1985, where time travel is possible and one can travel in and out of great works of literature. Like Water for Chocolate is the beautiful story of Tita and Pedro, incorporating love, food, and humor in a tale you’ll never forget.
