Book Review- The Time Traveler's Wife

I knew the second I let it escape that I read this book and I didn't review that there would be requests for a review and my suspicions were correct. Honestly? I didn't review it because I didn't know what to say.

I loved this book but there were times when I was completely embarrassed to be loving it. While the story is completely captivating and original, it is riddle with swearing, sex and the like. Sometimes a page had so many F words on it that I would literally turn around hoping no innocent child was reading over my shoulder. Since the basis of the story is a man who time travels and has no control over and since every time he time travels he ends up at his destination nude, it made for some very interesting scenes that the easily offended would be best to not read this book.

If you could get past all of the grit, the underlying story was beautiful, romantic but frustrating and twisting all at the same time. I love that the story switched vantage points and we heard the events from different people.

This story never left be bored but it did leave me blushing a few times.
