If you haven't read The Time Traveler's Wife, get up immediately - bust your bum to the nearest bookstore/library what have you and get it.
Its amazing.

They're coming out with the movie version this summer and I'm kind of excited/nervous. The second I got done with this book I begged the movie heavens to make a film out of it. But you never know, books-into-movies are either fabulous or not so much. And I want this to be fabulous. What if its not as beautiful as it is in my head? What if they don't do it the right way?

The rundown- without giving anything away:
Rachel McAdams as Claire. YES. you had me at mean girls and i loved you in the notebook.

Eric Bana as Henry. NOT SURE. no idea, someone give me the downlow on this guy. hes got quite a jaw.

Ron Livingston as Gomez. NO. Ron, I want to you like you. First you're Burger on SATC and i just never really liked you even though I wanted to. Now you're Gomez, who I never really could get a grip on and then wanted to hit with a bat. Sooo i'm going to say bad call, but I hope you surprise me.

As you can see, this averages out to whothehellknows. It comes out in August and I will there on opening day - because I love this story. And I want it to translate so beautifully.

Go read the book!

Eric Bana is awesome, he is an Aussie after all :P

I haven't read the book though, so I can't tell you how well suited he will be. But I love him :D

I haven't heard of this book until now! The title and the cover intrigue me though! Oh I know what you mean; movie versions of books never quite live up to the images in our minds.... perfect example:"Chocolat". Cute enough movie, (Johnny Depp helps) but a really really pissweak, watered down take on the actual book.

I LOVED this book, but read it years ago. Maybe I am due for a re-read before the movie comes out... but I have to say I am a little skeptical about Eric Bana... hmmmmm. But what can we expect - How many movies are as good as the book?

Omg, I loved this book so much and can't wait to see the movie. I think I posted/freaked out when I first heard they were making a movie. So exciting!

I love this book! Read it a couple years ago. This is the first I heard about a movie though. Excellent! I think I will need to re-read the book!
