Book Review

Audrey Niffenegger
The Time Traveler’s Wife

A dazzling novel in the most untraditional fashion, this is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare’s passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger’s cinematic storytelling that makes the novel’s unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant.

An enchanting debut and a spellbinding tale of fate and belief in the bonds of love, The Time Traveler’s Wife is destined to captivate readers for years to come.

I adore this book! While I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone, the people I would recommend it to would fall in love with this story. It was on my radar after I had heard different reviews back when the book came out, my reading list is so long that it took me a while to get to it. I actually saw the movie first and it made me go and pull this off my to-read list and start it. I’m not usually into romance stories, but this was so complex and took you up and down and around and all about the story that I was captivated. Even though I had watched the movie and knew what the ending would be, the journey to get there was filled with surprises and great little gems that the movie could never include or convey in the way that you can when reading a story.

This book is now on my to-read-again list.

PS This was supposed to be published on Friday, but when I checked it had been set for October 6.
