The Time Traveller's Wife / the other secret house @ 05:21 pm

Tags: , ,

Yes, I'm just getting around to Audrey Niffenegger's bestseller of 2003. It took longer to read than the movie to watch, but it was just as meh. There is something hidden in there, noodling ideas of fate and identity, but it remains hinted at rather than explored, making it unsatisfying, particularly on a page/insight ratio basis.

I also read a slim chapbook of poetry by sc virtes, whom I met at the HPL film fest. the other secret house explores the things (normal and not so normal) that go on in a house when the owners are away (or sometimes there, but asleep). They range in tone from humorous to a bit more thought-provoking. Generally good stuff, and short enough that they don't wear out their welcome before they've gotten the idea across.

Time Traveler's wife

I hated Time Traveler's Wife. But then, I have nightmares about my husband being injured. I don't need a book to give me more nightmares on the same subject. I was tense the whole time I read it.
