I feel I cheated a bit on this one, as I listened to the 4-part abridged version, rather than the 16-part version. I had listened to the first 30 minutes or so and decided I liked the book, so I was going to listen to the long version, but time got the better of me (and I haven't gotten the unabridged yet). Quite an interesting concept... a man who time travels back to his wife's childhood... so she's known him all her life when she meets him for the first time in the "present". He can't change anything, so when he knows he's going to die, there's nothing he can do about it. There were some quite moving parts (being a father tends to make me choke up at certain things...), and at least a definite ending on this one, but I would've liked a somewhat happier ending. I guess I'm just a sucker. Maybe Hollywood will make a happier ending when they do the movie due out this year. It definitely had some parts that would be considered R-rated if books had ratings, so be forewarned.
