One of the most moving books I've read in ages. It seemed too unbelievable at first. But then by the end of the first short section, I was drawn in and spent each day looking forward to getting back to the story. Tremendously romantic in the strangest of ways. The parallels to real life are many and deep--very thought provoking. Highly recommend.
absolutely loved this book - the story is unique and keeps you enthralled until the very end - highly recommended
This is one of the worst books I have ever read in my entire life. I had to force myself to finish it in hopes that maybe it would get better--it did not. I found the descriptions of any female over the age of 30 to be very offensive, (I'm sure back in the day once you hit 30 you were todays equivalent of 85). I also found his love for Alice to be unconvincing at best. Alice herself is an unlikeable character as is Max.
This book made me re-examine my life and the whole idea that our lives proceed on any "plan" whatsoever. Beauty in unexpected places is its chief theme.
The message of the story was conveyed in a beautifully constructed, yet still surprising way. Definitely a must read if you enjoyed "Time Traveler's Wife."
