The Time Traveler's Wife
The Time Traveler's Wife | Audrey Niffenegger
"The beloved, mega bestselling first novel from Audrey Niffenegger, "a soaring celebration of the victory of love over time" (Chicago Tribune). A most untraditional love story, this is the celebrated tale of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who inadvertently travels through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate affair endures across a sea of time and captures them in an impossibly romantic trap that tests the strength of fate and basks in the bonds of love. "The Time Traveler's Wife is an odd and enchanting love story. Most of us meet the person we love when we are adults, when the children we were are long gone. Henry and Clare--through the decidedly mixed blessing of Henry's Chrono-Displacement Disorder--have it both ways. It is a story of intense devotion filtered through time--of two people who share the best and worst of growing up as soulmates in a world that can change in an instant"(Charles Dickinson, author of A Shortcut in Time)"--

hhavel I picked up this novel several years ago. The concept of this book is brilliant, but the novel itself in its execution is a little slow-starting and average. I never finished it, but it definitely succeeded as far as the reviews and the attention it received for the author. She now is a tenured professor in a writing program at a Midwestern college. 3mo
Paperback.Propensity @hhavel Yeah, there were a lot of parts where nothing was really happening, I also wish there was more with the doctor and the research. I think I like the movie more. 3mo

LiteratiCafe This was one of the saddest books I‘ve read. When I finished all I could think was how does someone come up with such a story. Truly an amazing imagination, but oh so dark. This one is on my recommendation list of books with feels. The list includes The Dogs of Babel and Good Grief. All three are so good and so sad. 1mo

[#BookReview] The Time Traveler‘s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger! This was a very unique and unconventional love story between Henry and Clare. Henry meets Clare when he‘s 28 but she meets him for the first time when she‘s 6.

I actually buddy read this book with a friend and although I had fun reading it with her, this book definitely wasn‘t for me.

The Time Traveler‘s Wife by Audrey Niffeneggeris a very slow paced and unconventional love story that unfolds over the course of the book.

There were a few things that I enjoyed about this book, but unfortunately, overall, this one was not for me.

I really like your “Bookly” graphics. I was tempted to download it, too, but then I decided I don‘t need to have a subscription that shows me statistics.

Anyway, cool pictures. 😍

2. Pack it
3. There was alcohol and a phone involved. I'm not proud. Thankfully, only two of us are aware of it.

CoffeeNBooks A couple of years ago, I bought a copy of a Mark Twain book published in 1906. Inside, was someone's English paper about another Twain book. The paper was written in 1915. I'm an English teacher, so I keep meaning to frame it and hang in in my classroom. It was such a cool find! I love finding "treasures" in used books! 5mo
LokiDokey @CoffeeNBooks That is amazing. You should definitely frame that. It would be interesting to try and research the person's family. 5mo

Today‘s goal: Finish this book!
I‘ve been working on it all month but I‘m not super in love with it. I like it enough to power through, plus I‘m already halfway done. The only thing at work today is our annual DOD audit, which doesn‘t involve me, so here‘s to hoping things stay quiet and I get some pages in.

This book was incredibly engaging, very realistic, and I cared deeply for Henry and Clare. I thought about the book often whenever I wasn't reading it, and I cried at the end. For those reasons I give it 5 stars and rank it among my favorite books. ❤

Excuse me while I cry 😭 Such a beautiful tale of time & love. My husband and I are middle school/high school sweethearts & we‘re probably scarily co-dependent. So, it was easy to relate to this story 😂 Other reading time was during sons lego club at the library yesterday & bed time stories yesterday (kids knocked out on me tonight before we could) Only 6 hrs 26 mins left in #25infive for me! Happy weekend & readings littens! 🎉

MoniqueReads305 I cried so hard when I read this that my roommate at the time immediately read it after me. 😭😭😭 6mo

This was a fun book based quiz! I must confess, I took it twice. I could have gone two ways on a couple questions. They didn‘t have the right answers for me available. The first time I got Binti, from Nnedi Okorafor‘s books, which felt like a HUGE compliment but not quite right! I‘m not nearly that adventurous outside of a book! Then I got Harry DeTamble, still a bit off but closer. How about you?

It was a little challenging pushing myself through the first 90 pages but after that I felt that the characters and storyline were established enough where I was excited to keep reading. The pace was a slow trot as the two main characters personalities revealed and the storyline bubbled along piecing their lives together.
I really loved reading this book, the concept is fantastic and I loved the romance element to it very much.
