Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Voted the Book of the Decade by Lovereading readers.

Shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Film of the Year Award 2010.

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.

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."

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.

If you like Audrey Niffenegger you might also like to read books by Ben Sherwood, Mitch Albom and Mark Haddon.

Synopsis

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

This is the extraordinary love story of Clare and Henry who met when Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. In the face of this uncontrollable force, Henry and Clare's struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

'At it's core The Time Traveler's Wife is an old-fashioned love story. A terrific bookstartlingly
original construction'' - Observer

'I was ridiculously entranced by Audrey Niffenegger's big, reckless novel-utterly convincing' - Daily Telegraph

'Niffenegger exploits the possibilities of her fantasy scenario with immense skill: no wonder this novel has spent weeks on the bestseller lists in the US. This is one of those books that makes you want to eat it up from start to finish' - Guardian
