Definitely better because this book is rocking my world--I'm actually making myself ration it because it's so good, so sweet, so heart-rending that to read too much in one sitting is too hard. This is a book to linger over.
That said, let us get on with the tease:
"'Does your dad have any clothes he doesn't need? Even a pair of pants would be great. I mean, I like this towel, don't get me wrong, it's just that where I come from, I usually like to wear pants,'" (p. 43).This is a scene from the first time that Henry (the time traveler, aged 36) and Clare (the time-traveler's wife, aged 6) meet. It's too cute and romantic.
Interesting tid-bit... I know a lot of you will have already read this book (and enjoyed it), so have heart, Niffenegger has completed work on her second novel and it will probably be published in the fall of this year. Also, the film adaptation of this book (starring Eric Bana as Henry and Rachel McAdams as Clare) is set to be released in February 2010. Read more about it all here.
