BTW I read The Time Traveler's Wife on the flight from LA to Sydney (jodie was reading it but she fell asleep and I had already finished the book i brought because of the 24 hour Qantas screwup).
I haven't seen the movie yet but really really liked the book.
Considering I read it cover to cover in one sitting it's not a weighty read BUT it surprised me with how creative the concept was. When i first saw the movie ads on TV i thought i understood what the concept was but it's actually 10 times more creative (no i'm not giving it away).
It's probably somethng that makes more sense to read first then watch the movie but i'm guessing it will follow the plot very closely.
