This book is one of those I need to read again. It took me about 50-75 pages to get hooked, and then I couldn't put it down. I have since lent it to a friend, so she can experience it too.
I can't put my finger on it, but the book was just so different. It was a wonderful love story but deeper than that. I love how he never really tells anybody what's going to happen in the future, even though he knows (there were a few exceptions to this, which I thought were tastefully done, especially telling his friend with AIDS (?) that he was alive in the following year). That would be the hardest part for me.
I wish they had delved a little more into Henry and how he felt about the whole thing. I mean, you know somewhat that he's annoyed and yet fascinated by his unique ability but it had to really f*ck with his head, and other than close friends/family he couldn't really discuss with anybody because who would believe him, unless they saw him?
I don't know, I feel like I'm dancing around what I'm trying to say but as I don't know what that is, I'll just leave it there. This is an awesome book, and one I will definitely read again. Don't think I'll see the movie though. The book was so good, I'd be afraid the movie will screw up my memory of it.
