I'm going to skip The Time Traveler's Wife  
As a rule, I don't read books that are specifically written to be sad. Hence, the reason I've never read The Time Traveler's Wife.

The trailers give the impression of a movie that has been done quite well, however it still seems too sad for me. So, being curious I looked up the plot in Wikipedia.

Let's just say I will NOT be watching this movie. Being clinically depressed was not on my list of things to do today.

O - but the book isn't depressing, truly. It's rather beautiful and if the ending is always going to be sad, it's still worth it... bit like life really!

That's a beautiful and mature way of looking at it. Unfortunately for me I treat books and movies as a form of escapism, and so therefore prefer them to be as far from real life as possible. I like my heroes brave, my heroines braver, and my endings happy.

I forgot it came out today! Hmm, I wonder if I'll see it before it's out on DVD. I loved the book, it has a range of emotions, happy to sad but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Plus the movie has Eric and Rachel, and I love them both! And it looks pretty. I like sad endings sometimes. But that's just me.

I had the feeling when I read the book description, The Time Traveler's Wife just could not end well. I really can't bring myself to read it or watch the movie. Even if Eric Bana shares a brotherly similarity to David Tennant.

lol I've always heard it was a great romance. and in fact I have the book sitting in a box to be read, so far it seemed really good (I read like 2 chapters) and I'm dying to find someone to go see the movie with lol

lol but its such a darn good book! And the movie was fabulous, I dragged my roomates out to it and they all cried too lol when I read the book, the last like 100 chapters was a speed read for me because I wanted to finish the book before I had work the next day and I was depserate to know how it ended, well about 50 pages to go (and might I add by this time I'm pretty sure what going to happen so I've been in the living room crying while reading) one of the roomates wakes up for work, well naturally I didn't want to be sitting in there crying while she made breakfast, and I couldn't go sit on my bed because my roomate was sleeping, so instead I go sit down in my closet and just blast through the last 50 pages sobbing the entire way lol. the next day my roomate was like "Did I hear crying from the closet last night? Or did I just dream it?" lol
