BOOK CLUB: LOVE (Time Travellers Wife)


I was sighing over this book again, and I got to thinking; would I want the love between Claire and Henry?

I personally would not. I don't want to give that much of myself to someone, that when they leave, as everyone inevitably does, I'll be left behind completely adrift.

"love" as i know it is bad enough, I don't think I could deal with with the pains of love when love is felt to that magnitude.

What do you guys think?

probably not

I finally found a guy who loves me back with the same intensity, and I went through a few frogs...but I wouldn't give that up for what they have. Who has that kind of patience? Perhaps to Clair, growing up isolated, it was exciting to have a secret. Once I hit university though...I would have been out of there. But it says something interesting about fate, that it was their fate to be together.

Look what his gift did to all the other women he was takes a special kind of person to be able to handle it all. Although does Clair handle it, in the end? I think that kind of love, although sweet to think about, is too much, too consuming. I would pass.
