    The Time Traveler's Wife


    Date Released

    This exceptional first novel is the story of Henry and Clare, who have known each other since Clare was 6 and Henry was 36, and were married when Clare was 20 and Henry 28. This is possible only because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he flashes to other points in time, usually moments of emotional gravity for him. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Audrey Niffenegger explores the effects this condition has on Henry and Clare's marriage and their passionate love for each other, as the story unfolds from both points of view. Clare and Henry strain to live as normal a life as they can, pursuing goals that will be familiar to most readers - steady jobs, love, good friends, children of their own. That these are all threatened by something Henry can neither prevent nor control makes this story profoundly moving and entirely unforgettable.
    The Time Traveler's Wife
    A heart touching, amazing tale of love, pain and an inability to stay in the present tense... A fantastically thought out novel, I have never found a book that switches character's perspectives so naturally and effectively.The Time Traveller's Wife packs a tear jerking punch that will leave you raving about it for months! A definite must read!

    The Time Traveler's Wife
    Much more than a love story, The Time Traveler's Wife is destined to become a classic. Niffenegger masterfully weaves back and forth through time from the perspectives of both Clare and Henry, whose lives have been entwined since Clare was 6 and Henry 36. As Henry slips uncontrollably back and forth through time, Clare becomes not only his anchor but his true love - the one to whom he always returns. Very cleverly and intricately structured, with strong and believable characters, it is impossible not to be drawn in and carried along in this moving and poignant tale.

    This book was lent to me by a friend. It was nothing like I imagined. Its beautiful, funny, interesting and it made me cry, really cry. It stayed with me for many weeks after until eventually I had to go and buy my own copy. It's one of my favourites. Wonderful, wonderful book.

    This is one of my favourite books of all times. Poignant, romantic, full of gob-smacking surprises and an ending that left me gasping. Have your tissues at hand and buckle up for an amazing ride. I have loaned it to both males and females and it was enjoyed by all. A book that you will want to keep on your bookshelf and one that improves with each read. Brilliant!
