I can't put this down. The language isn't at all challenging but that's fine. I find myself sidetracked enough trying to keep up with the changing age differences and trying to wrap my brain around why he doesn't recognize Clare when he meets her in the present but he knows her in her past and in her future. (ETA: Now that I'm more into their present, I get it!)
Shawn looked at it on the table yesterday and said, "You realize that was on TV last night, right?" I'm trying to do things a little differently this year. I'm reading the book before I see the movie. I want to see if I experience that whole the-book-was-better-than-the-movie thing, which really kind of confounds me, that I want to be disappointed in movies! So I'm giving it a try with this one. And next up, The Lovely Bones.
