The Time Traveler's Wife - The Movie

I read the book The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger a while ago just for fun.  I actually thought the book was well written and had a very interesting concept.  It did drag a little in the middle but picked back up when Henry (main character) met his daughter Alba for the first time.  I enjoyed the read and it comes highly recommended from me.  

However, I hadn't had a chance to see the movie until tonight.  What I realized is that this is absolutely the WORST movie to see while your spouse is deployed.  What a MISTAKE!  Holy Crap.  I feel like the time traveler's wife.  I feel like my husband comes and goes, in and out of my life (although I usually have an idea of when he's going and for how long.  I also know when he's coming back...roughly).  But WOW... I feel as like "Clare" sometimes, forever waiting for my husband to come back home. 

Oh my goodness, all I have to say is if you're significant other is away from you right now ... read the book but definitely don't watch the movie.  My heart is pounding a million miles a minute right now... I am definitely really emotional and I think I might just cry....

I didn't read the book, but I saw the movie. It was so strange...yet, it definitely struck a chord with me the same way it did with you. Waiting is so hard sometimes.
