The time traveler's wife

Well, this time, in order to control my perpetual insomnia, I picked up this book "The time traveller's wife" by some lady Audrey Niffenegger. It was thick, and as my sedation levels while reading, are directly proportional to the thickness, so I thought, it would be an ideal solution.
It back fired -
For the past two nights I am devouring it, like any thing...my insomnia has been aggravated, after a reading of 2-3 hours, it takes another 2-3 hours, to get the build up out of my mind...before i get into anything closer to a sleep.(some crucial 5-6 hours a day wasted...)
story is original, well not so original, in terms of ideas, but original as a combination of unoriginal ideas, mix-up adventures of time travel jumbled with the raptures of a love story.
presentation is different, but then these days every writer is experimenting, so may be an average attempt, reminds a lot of the plot flow in "The flowers for Algernon".
Style, full of similes, some of them are impressive.

i cannot give my last impression, as i am yet to complete, but till now it had been fullfilling.
just googled, looks like some movie adaptation carrying Brad Pitt and Jeniffer Anniston is on its way....
These japs..... they only keep those english books on the shelf, for which there is a movie.
