The Time Traveler's Wife

I just finished the The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffeneger. I was quite excited about this book, because I had heard that the movie was pretty good. The book was on sale so I bought it to read before I watched the movie. We'll probably watch the movie sometime soon. I sure hope the movie is better than the book though. I was not very impressed by it. The story line was interesting and kept me wanting to read more. I like love stories (not the gross ones; more like Nicholas Sparks) but I was not very impressed by the way the book was written. The language in this book was disgusting and inappropriate. I don't get offended easily by things, but scenes that she described in this book made me uncomfortable. They were so not necessary. The book would have been one million times better without them and the words that accompanied them. Has anyone else out there read this book? I would love to hear what you thought about it.
