Author: Audrey Niffenegger Format: Paperback Release Date: 04/08/2011

Voted the Book of the Decade by Lovereading readers.   Shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Film of the Year Award 2010.

I am flabbergasted; I tend to think of The Time Traveler's Wife as my odd little book that somehow found its readers. It's amazing to me how many readers it has found, and how intensely they care for the book." Comparison: Mark Haddon, David Mitchell.   The Time Traveler’s Wife has been made into a film by New Line Cinema and Starring Eric Bana & Rachel McAdams.

Her Fearful Symmetry

Her Fearful Symmetry

Author: Audrey Niffenegger Format: Paperback Release Date: 05/07/2010

I am glad it has been a few years since The Time Traveler’s Wife for else one might be tempted to compare this to that rare book.  Don’t get me wrong, this is wonderful too, and very clever. It’s easier to follow, nicely spooky and chilling at the end.Exploring themes of love, loss and identity, it is a 21st century ghost story set largely in London and concerns twins and their unusual inheritance.  A remarkable book, a touch disturbing but beautifully executed. Comparison: Susan Hill, Sarah Waters, Julie Myerson.

The Time Traveler's Wife

The Time Traveler's Wife

Author: Audrey Niffenegger Format: Paperback Release Date: 29/05/2004

October 2014 Guest Editor Cecelia Ahern on The Time Traveler's Wife... This is one of my all time favourite novels, about a woman who’s husband has a rare disorder which means that his periodic clock keeps resetting itself, forcing him to jump back and forth through time against his will. The beauty of this story is that he meets her when she’s a child, but as adults she meets him before he even knows her. It’s beautifully written and incredibly clever and I cried my eyes out at the end.   The Lovereading view... A huge book in every way.  The protagonists meet each other at different times throughout their lives and you do have to accept the unusual concept but accept it you will, for it is beautifully structured.  It’s a love story, pure and simple, but probably the most unusual love story you will ever read.  Once finished, it will be with you for days.   A 2012 World Book Night selection. Voted the Book of the Decade by Lovereading readers. Shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Film of the Year Award 2010.   Audrey Niffenegger on hearing that her novel The Time Traveler’s Wife is Lovereading's Book of the Decade:  "Thank you to everyone who read the book, and to all who voted. I am flabbergasted; I tend to think of The Time Traveler's Wife as my odd little book that somehow found its readers. It's amazing to me how many readers it has found, and how intensely they care for the book."
