the time traveller's wife

i'm re-reading the time traveller's wife, by audrey niffenegger. i frist read it about a year ago and it immediately went on my top ten list. i've got less than a hundred pages to go and i can't stand it anymore, even though i know the payoff in the end is huge and totally worth it. i adore the protagonist(s) and i'm finding myself hoping that the second time around, things happen differently. but as it goes it the book, if it happened once it'll happen again no matter how much i want it to be changed. then again, if it were to have a different ending, would i love this book so much? i leant it to my mom and she didn't like it, i think maybe the theory behind the time travelling is a little too far-fetched for her. i also tried to get my neighbour to read it but she couldn't get into it. generally speaking i'm not normally a huge fan of american authors- i tend to like the way the british unfold their stories better. for some reason this book draws me in and i can't put it down, or stop thinking of what's about to happen...

You should read "Choose your own Adventure" books...the ending is always diffrent :)

I've heard great things about that book. The fiancee is just starting it. I'll let you know what she thinks.
