day 17: book that made me cry

The Time Traveler's Wife is an interesting book that combines science fiction with romance. I'm at a loss for words about this book because the tale is so very unusual. A girl meets the man she will marry when she is six and he, travelling uncontrollably through time, appears before her in the meadow at her parents' home...stark naked and in his forties. In less capable hands, this story would just be...well...creepy. In Niffenegger's, it is not. It is a beautiful story about love and fate, sacrifice and separation.

P.S. The movie will make you cry, too.
