The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger was an impulse purchase for me last fall, shortly after my birthday for which I was given a gift card to Chapters. I had been given this book before and had passed it over as my grandmother (first mistake) deemed it "weird". Well, come this past winter I read it, absorbed it, relished it until I finished every page. Perhaps my grandmother was right~ it is weird, but wonderfully so. It became easily one of my favourite books of all time, and that's saying something, because as an English Lit major I have read a lot of books in my time. The story itself is creative, romantic and heartbreaking at the same time, combining everything I look for in any novel I choose. The moment I put it down I was anxious to see how soon the film was released. The movie itself, starring the flawless Rachel McAdams (of The Notebook fame) and deliciously sexy Eric Bana (Munich, The Other Boleyn Girl) debuts in August 2009 but the official trailer was released today (after many many You Tube searches by yours truly I am thrilled) and even its two and a half minutes gave me goose bumps in the best possible way. How can a trailer make you cry? Watch this and you'll find out.
