I must admit that at the beginning I wasn't sure wether I was liking the book or not... then, I started entering the story, and ejoyed it, even if there was a part in the middle that almost let me give up the book! But I had to go on, as I wanted to know how things would have worked ;) I am now happy I read it all, as I loved the book! I almost cried in the end :P, and really loved the character of Clare.

Journal Entry 9 by stardust10 from Como, Lombardia Italy on Wednesday, July 23, 2008
The time traveler's wife is here with me. It is queued and I think it will go on vacation with me

Journal Entry 10 by stardust10 from Como, Lombardia Italy on Friday, September 12, 2008
I really enjoyed reading this book! It's unusual even if some parts are a little bit messy because you have to think about who the characters are. Also the technique used by the author is really interesting.
It's already on its way to Maracujia

Journal Entry 11 by maracujia from Comazzo, Lombardia Italy on Tuesday, September 16, 2008
The book is here with me!

Journal Entry 12 by maracujia from Comazzo, Lombardia Italy on Monday, October 20, 2008
I finished it few days ago and I still cannot work out the sensations I felt reading it...as it came on my way in a particular moment and I could perfectly understand the frustration, sadness, longing and desire Clare experiments when Henry is away.
it's a strange story a little bit messy, I fully agree with Stardust, but it captures you and it makes impossible to stop reading.

thanks so much for this beautiful reading!

Journal Entry 13 by DitteL from Næstved, Storstrøms Amt Denmark on Monday, October 27, 2008
I've just collected this from the post office. I can't wait to read it, and fortunately I just have to finish my current read and then I'll get started on this one.

Thank you maracujia for passing this on to me.

Journal Entry 14 by DitteL from Næstved, Storstrøms Amt Denmark on Monday, November 03, 2008
I've just finished this wonderful and incredibly touching book.

To begin with I was a little afraid that the whole time travelling aspect would make the book one big mess where I as reader wouldn't know what was going on and when, but I didn't think that was a problem at all due to the parenthesis at the beginning of each section.

Thank you so much lizzyblack for sharing this book with me, I'd never have read it if it wasn't because of this ring and know I suspect that it might become a part of my PC one day.

I send a PM to the next person on the list yesterday but haven't heard anything yet so I'll wait a couple days before sending a new PM, Hopefully, this book will continue its journey soon.

November 5th:
I've PMed Frangelle again.

November 19th:
I've finally posted this to Frangelle. I'm sorry for the delay. I hope the book will get to the UK in one piece.

I am so sorry for not journalling this book, I don't know why I didn't, no excuses I'm afraid! Thankyou for reminding me lizzyblack, will read then release x

Journal Entry 16 by frangelle on Wednesday, January 06, 2010
Firstly I am so so sorry for keeping this book this long. I found it quite hard to get into but became so sad and moving near the end that it was well worth the read. Left a chill down my spine.

On it's way to Italy next, enjoy!

eek, big book! :)))
I am glad I only have one bookring already with me, nonetheless I am afraid it will take a little longer than usual to finish this one -also because as I suspected it is not an easy read.
Anyway, if there are any significant delays, I'll keep the ringmaster posted ^_^

Journal Entry 18 by alassante from Palermo, Sicilia Italy on Tuesday, April 06, 2010
sorry I have kept this book longer than usual. I had actually finished reading it a while ago, but I have been extremely busy and mostly away from the internet, and I didn't want to send it without a journal entry with my comments.
Not that they're particularly meaningful or interesting anyway, but here they are ;))

As with many stories about time-travelling, I first had to get the grasp of what kind of time-travelling this was about. I found it slightly difficult to figure it out at the very beginning, and that made things a little bit confusing. But once you get the "key", the story runs smoothly and easy to structure chronologically. I had to get back to the first pages to clear some things out, and I also felt compelled to do that (re-read bits and pages again) after I finished the book, in order to see some things in a different light and perspective, so I guess the unclear beginning was also made on purpose, to reach this goal.
I loved how all the bits and pieces went into place eventually, and how all this built into the climax of the finale. For me, the big suspence worked exactly because some events that are lived and narrated by a character are still the (unclear) future for the other one, and viceversa. In this way, the author gives us readers hints and glimpses, almost like the picture of a puzzle that gruadually shows its shape.
And without it being too gimmicky ^_^

I will update this entry later, confirming if I've sent the book this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

Update April 8th:
the book is now on its way back home.
Thank you Lizzyblack for offering me the chance to read it!
