it was amazing
bookshelves: guy-meets-girl
Read in January, 1983

I read this under the original title "Bid Time Return", before the movie was released. I've re-read it several times since (and will read it again). I wish I could give it more stars. This is probably my all-time favorite book ever, and I read a LOT.

The book is a million times better than the movie, and I really like the movie. The book was written in such a believable style that honestly, I was looking for some proof after I finished it that it was, in fact, fiction. I was completely captivated by the story.

As many of you are probably familiar with the movie, I'll just say that the book does differ a bit, most notably in the location. It takes place in California, at the Hotel Del Coronado - a real hotel that's just as incredible as the Grand Hotel they used for the movie.

I can't recommend this one enough - love love love it!
