Kevin sent me this great article in which a physicist analyzes the time travel element in The Time Traveler’s Wife.
I think time travel is one of the most intriguing and most confusing concepts in literature and film. Thinking about the grandfather paradox makes my mind all a-whirl with so many questions. I suppose that’s why it’s been a regular topic spanning virtually all genres over several centuries. This writer explains why time travel actually seems quite plausible in Time Traveler’s Wife, of all works – certainly not what one would call traditional “science fiction”. It’s really very interesting.
I highly recommend the book as well. Don’t forget: the movie comes out today, starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana!
