Book Review: The Time Traveler's Wife

Book Review: The Time Traveler's Wife

Though having completed "only one" novel, Audrey Niffenegger has achieved with The Time Traveler's Wife what many veteran authors have not even achieved through a collection of works: a solid, thorough, well-researched, and gorgeously told love story. She weaves the lives of Henry and Claire, a couple destined to be together throughout their entire lives, as Henry, due to a genetic quirk, defeats the confines of time and space, shuttling back and forth between his past and present. The concept is not easy to sum up quickly, but once the reader understands what Henry does, it is impossible to doubt that this is a reality. Niffenegger tells the tale from both Henry's and Claire's perspectives, and her writing is rich and vivid, poetic and visceral. The lovers' experience is ethereal and other-worldly, yet the characters themselves are achingly human and emotional creatures with whom you find yourself feeling a kinship. If you are looking for fluff, this isn't your book. But if want a love story that is both identifiable and larger-than-life, you will be changed after reading this work.

When I first started reading this book I was frustrated by the time jumping thing, but once I got the hang of it I could NOT put it down. Her writing is so beautiful, too. Definitely a must-read!

I read this book a while back and absolutely loved it. It may be a bit confusing at first if you don't pay attention to the dates, but it is a great plot and a very moving story. Definitely a must read!
