The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (Review #5)

Description of the book: 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 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 Claire’s struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

 How this book made me feel: I can’t believe that it was released almost 8 years ago; it feels that I saw the movie just yesterday. But a good creation never gets old.  This is a fascinating love story filled with romance, unbelievable amount of patience and tragedy. The book itself is so well thought through that even if you wipe your tears while reading it (I know I did) the ending will still give you that “oh, thanks God” feeling.  There is a little bit of confusion in this book due to past – present jumps, but more you read it more sense it makes.  My biggest enemies in books are long chapters and this book didn’t disappoint me, chapters are not very long and divided into smaller parts, so if you like to read while on the go, this book is for you.  I was glad that this book was made into movie, it really deserved it. Even though the books will always be better than movies, this book’s screenplay was really entertaining. In conclusion, this book is witty, entertaining and at the same time sad, so if you looking for something like that, give it a go and I think you will be pleased.

Rating: 10/10
