LoveReading Expert Review of The Time Traveler's Wife

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.

The Time Traveler's Wife Synopsis

This extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare and Henry who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. His disappearances are spontaneous and his experiences are alternately harrowing and amusing. The Time Traveler's Wife depicts the effects of time travel on Henry and Clare's passionate love for each other with grace and humour. Their struggle to lead normal lives in the face of a force they can neither prevent nor control is intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.
