I agree. A decent book with strong characters and good writing, but I found it a little slow at times, and, as you mentioned, a bit "sentimental" for my tastes. Guess that's why I normally read thrillers. :) But I liked the premise and thought it was well executed.

I read this book when it was advertised on a tv book club. I thought it was very well written, a little hard to get into at the start with the swapping and changing, but when you to grip with it it was hard to put down. I tried watching the film to recap my memory but didn't enjoy it so never watched it fully. But the book I would give 4.5/5

I found this book absolutely fascinating! The jumping back and forth in time made it exciting, leaving you wondering where you were going, almost as if you were travelling with him! 5/5 this book made me cry

I really enjoyed it, I made my husband wait to get the movie until I had finished it. That really didn't take long though :D

One of my favorite books. I really want to read it again since I read it awhile ago. The movie made me mad. I absolutely adored the ending of this book but the movie did a completely different ending and I don't think the movie did the book justice. Even though I loved the casting of the movie they left out extremely important parts of the novel crucial to the story. I know movies can't fit everything from the book into the movie but they left out so much important stuff.

The most interesting part of this book, for me, was the author's take on time--the concept of 'everything that will happen has already happened' and vice-versa. It provides a take on the constant battle between choice and destiny. How much choice do we really have? And how does it impact destiny? Where does the control lie? I love books that tell an interesting story, but open up a world of questions, and this was certainly one of them.

I loved the book because I thought the concept of uncontrollable time travelling to be fascinating and I loved the relationship between Henry and his wife. The movie was pretty good too.

This book was incredible, it couldn't be put down. Something about it makes me very emotional, crying was a big part of my reading experience. The ending was heart-wrenching I want to watch the movie but I'm not sure I can handle that plot again.

I tried so hard to get into this book but it just wasn't for me. It never drew me in and I found it boring. That's just me though.
