There are those books that can just do without mindless, unnecessary details. And then there are those books which those mindless details is necessary and essential to the plot. And I think, this book falls in the latter category.

The mindless details is what makes the story happens.It's necessary to let the readers know about Henry and Clare. It's necessary to remind the readers again and again that Henry is not as normal as we like him to be. And those mindless details enable the readers to relate what the two main characters are going through.

Out all of the movies adapted from books, the movie version of this book is the most decent one, I think. It stays true to the book at most part. And just like the movie, it's filled with moments. Moments you can't even decide if you like them or not, but it stays in your mind nevertheless.
