The Time Traveler's Wife

The Time Traveler's Wife The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger


My review
rating: 3 of 5 stars
Once I got into the format of the story I loved it. The sense of impending doom, the way the author caught me up in the helplessness... I cried desperately because there was nothing I could do to change the ending. I could have done without the Claire/Gomez dining room table scene, but oh well.

Pub. Date: July 2004

Synopsis: This bestselling and innovative debut novel from Audrey Niffenegger explores the perfect marriage, one that is tested by challenges the couple can neither control nor predict. An imaginative extension of everyday life, the story asks: What if two people who loved each other deeply, married, and faced a life in which one person remained constant while the other slipped fluidly in and out of time?

A modern love story with a twist that invites us to linger over questions of how life and love change over time.
