    not an ordinary love story

    This is a beautiful story of unconditional love.

    Tim is an incredibly attractive 25 year old man with the mind of a child. From the very first pages the author makes you fall in love with Tim because of his warm heart and simply outspoken personality. Mary Horton is a woman in her 40ies, living a secluded life and spending most of her time at work. Every day is the same for her until the day she meets Tim. He lightens her up and changes her life completely. It's exciting to follow how the relationship develops between them, from a simple friendship and Mary's wish to help him into true love. They are so different that many people (even Tim's sister) disapprove and are unable to understand their love. Even the author says: They are the world's most unique couple.

    There are so many beautiful romantic love stories written, but this one is very special and deserves to be read.

    One of the author's best books!

    I enjoyed 'The Thorn Birds' by the author but I fell in love with 'Tim'. It is so touching and romantic. When I discovered that a movie was made from this book, I immediately obtained the video since it was made in 1979. The editing of the movie did not do the book justice. There were too many changes that were quite disappointing. I was surprised that they could even make a movie out of it. It's such a special drama. I will admit though, Meb Gibson was perfect in the movie role. At twenty-four, he was really an true 'Adonis'. I had read the book twice when I purchased the video. I have seen the movie four times but only because of Mel Gibson. He is truly adorable and spectacular in the movie. Of the two versions, however, I will pick the book. The extensive editing made in the movie, damaged the story. It was like it was re-written. You almost have to read the book first to enjoy the movie. Otherwise, the movie could be confusing because of all the parts that were removed.
