  1. I think you’re dead on, and it’s great when it happens. I’ve heard from a number of friends who “don’t read that sort of thing” that they wound up really enjoying my favorite love story, which is The Time Traveller’s Wife. Only one or two said they couldn’t get into it (too Sci-Fi); most suspended their usual disbelief long enough to fall in love with the characters. (Mind you, I know it’s not a great example of what you mean – the time travel is in your face from page one. But still.)

    Anyway, well said!
