The Lovereading4Kids comment

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.

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 force they can neither prevent nor control, Henry and Clare's struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

Reviews

At its core The Time Traveler's Wife is an old-fashioned love story. A terrific book - startlingly 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

Wonky, sexy, incredible

Pick up Niffenegger's book and you'll experience a visceral thrill that only a few novels provide. An elegy to love and loss
