Book #15 - The Time Traveller's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger

This book is a sweet love story disguised as a science fiction novel. Or vice versa, depending on your perspective. I really enjoyed it and it was a fast read. Keep in mind, however, that this book will leave your head spinning at times. Fans of the TV show Lost will know what I'm talking about. Any storyline that has some characters jumping through time and others not will really start to mess with your head. That being said, this was the first of two books in a row that were: #1 - Really good at forshadowing, so that you knew what was coming but it didn't relieve the suspense at all, and #2 - Really heavy books to read (not weight-wise, but emotion-wise). I probably should have spread these kinds of books out a bit. This was a really well written book, considering how hard it must have been to keep the timeline straight. I didn't find it to be in my top 10 best books of all time list, as some people have, but it was a good one nonetheless.
