it was amazing
Read from February 15 to 19, 2010

The book and movie are both very good but to me reading the book is emotional draining. The book gives the reader a better understanding of Elise, what her beliefs and how much she had to struggle with herself and her feelings about Richard. It also seems she may have know that Richard would leave her in the end.

Richard seems unsure of himself most of the story but he was dealing with his imminent death, traveling in time and the unknowns of his realtionship with Elise plus her mother and manager.

The book ending left the reader wondering did Richard go back in time and meet Elise or was it just a delusion. To answer the question the author could have had Robert go to the hotel and check the 1896 guest register,
