I hope the New Year has been bringing a lot of happiness and good luck to all. For me, it has just brought a lot of cold, fog, ice-cold winds…… it has become mandatory to be bundled up in layers and layers of clothing (I have also brought a topi!). Small activities also need a lot of deliberation like how important the task is? Do I really need to pee or can it wait? Do I have to scratch my head and hence take my hand out of the warm cosy blanket? You get the vibe right? I HATE WINTERS (though there are things that I like about them)!
Now that I am satisfied cribbing about the cold I will come to the point. The point is that I am reading a book called The Time traveller’s wife. Many of you must have heard about it and some would have even seen the movie. I am still in the process of reading the book, but it has already had a very strong effect on me. I am so fascinated by the time travel the hero Henry is capable of(actually not capable of, he cannot control or direct the phenomenon). Though the hero does not think much of it and is unhappy about his “superpower”, but then even Spiderman isn’t.
Few lines from the book:
twenty-eight and she is twenty. He is
a hip librarian; she is a beautiful art
student. Henry has never met Clare
before; Clare has known Henry since
she was six...
All of us have a hidden desire of having a superpower. I have one (one?) too. Invisibility. How cool would it be to sneak up on people and see what they are upto. Also a great speed (like that of vampires) so that I can go where-ever I want to and like whenever I wish to. Also the power to read a person's thoughts. That would be so interesting and controversial. Hmm, so that’s my thing. What’s yours? Do share. Would be fun!
Also FYI, I have the soft copy of The Time Traveller’s Wife so if anyone is interested do let me know. I will be happy to help.
