The Time Traveler's Wife

Went to watch this a few weeks back and I found it pretty touching. A genetic disorder caused Henry to time travel randomly. He cannot control the place or the time period. It could be the future or it could be the past. He met his future wife one day who already loved him all her life as Clare first met Henry as a child. And the film is about how they both tried their best to lead normal lives and the challenges they faced.

The ending was kinda sad which was what made the movie so moving. And they told me the ending's different in the book and that it was better than the movie's. I've not read the book yet although I'm not sure if a happy ending is what I would prefer. Cause well in life, not everything gets a happily ever after. And they serve to remind us to never take anything for granted.

Oh, and did I say that the film took place in Chicago? Ahh..the skyline brought on a sense of familiarity and it felt good :)

The book is way way way better than the movie ler.... I cried my eyes out at the end of the book which is why i loved the book so much. It really showed how much love she had for him. I don't know why they decided to change the end of the movie.

I can lend you the book the next time i see you.

Again, I must say the final scene in the book is way way more touching than in the movie. I think they changed it because the one in the book may not have been so romantic?

(I'm upset that they had to change it. I was waiting through the whole movie to watch the ending)

Quickly read the book and share your thoughts about it. :P
