I am about 3/4 finished, and so far, I don't hate Henry. He seems nearly emotionally disabled by his temporal affliction, but he has good taste in music. (Who didn't own a copy of that Violent Femmes album!!) Clare was cursed by a determined future to be a fairly "meh" human. I dunno, it's a bland, but palatable affair. My sister in law sent me this book for Christmas, and her family is very similar to Clare's. She warned me I would cry my eyes out, but I don't think she knows me that well.
Conversely, I like the idea of true love being timeless. I do believe that. Call me a mush head, but it IS almost valentine's day. XXOO and all that rot. (Go eat some candy hearts. Lick three and stick them to your forehead. The one that falls off last is the message from your secret admirer. )
Something interesting it makes me consider though: If you could go back in time, and advise yourself about something, would you? Is there anything you would change, or redo?
