This bestselling and innovative debut novel from Audrey Niffenegger explores the perfect marriage, one that is tested by challenges the couple can neither control nor predict. An imaginative extension of everyday life, the story asks: What if two people who loved each other deeply, married, and faced a life in which one person remained constant while the other slipped fluidly in and out of time? A modern love story with a twist that invites us to linger over questions of how life and love change over time.
I read this book three years ago, and can still vividly remember the emotions it pulled from me. If you haven't read it yet - what are you waiting for?
I really enjoyed this book. The premise is quite clever and nicely done. I didn't care for the ending, though. I didn't quite get how he could suddenly be in the same place in the past twice, when in every other instance he was only in the present once and the past once. All in all, a great read; here's hoping they don't butcher the movie.
i loved this book, everything about it. i loved how it skipped around, because that's how my mind works. i loved the whole time travel leap in leap out concept, it's like one of my favorite shows as a kid, quantum leap. i loved the ending, it was so realistic. whenever i see people on the train reading this book i silently think, good choice.
This is one of the best books I've ever read. It is my all-time favorite. Being the bookworm that I am, my friends always ask me what book they should read. I always recommend The Time Traveler's Wife. This book will make you smile and cry and cry some more. Although the beginning of the book is a bit confusing, it will make sense as continue reading. This book is truly amazing and will take you out of your humdrum world and you'll enter the lives of Henry and Claire.
Nothing is better than a book that leaves an impression after you've finished---a book that makes you sad to put it down. The characters, while unique due to the extraordinary cir***stances, are familiar and realistic. Highly recommended!
