My friend gave me this book as a christmas gift, making me promise to give it a go, as i'm not one for overly romantic/girly novels.

With that said....i LOVED this book.

I didn't find it overly girly, and had just the right amount of romance/sex/whatever.

The story is told from the point of view of two characters, Claire and Henry. They take turns telling parts of their story of life/love together.

If you can get past the whole 'time travelling' thing and for a minute believe it can happen, you will LOVE this book too.

It was very touching, loving, and i found myself crying a lot, especially at the end.

It's a very worthwhile book to pick up!

Cool to hear. My buddy bought it for his girlfriend and she loved it. It's been on my chapters wish list for quite a while now...soooo guess I'll be ordering it tonight with my gift certificate. There's a few books I want to pick up.

I just read some reviews on amazon about this book. It sounds really great! I might pick up a copy sometime or get it from the library.

I'm not too far into it, but I read a lot of reviews and there were a lot of women who said their husbands recommended it.... but who's to say those husbands don't have secrets...

So far, it's not overly mushy or anything though.

When I bought it yesterday the man working cash told me he had bought it, and hadn't started reading it yet, but couldn't wait to read it. And it's not a mushy romance either like tollfree said. It's just really well written and has a little bit of everything in it. I think most anybody woud enjoy it.

Well, I confess, I just read a review online. The concept of someone having a genetic defect causing his spontaneous travel through time is rather, but the story sound interesting...may just watch for it. :)

Just finished it, finally, a few weeks ago. I looooved it. There were a few draggy parts, but it was mostly very intriguing. And I bawled my eyes out for the last 50+ pages.

I started reading this book last week. I just wanted to add that I'm having a hard time putting it down as well. :) The comments about the last 50 pages being really sad have me worried though! LOL

Finish it yet?!

Can't wait for the movie, although I'm scared it'll be butchered.
