Time Traveler's Wife
Time Traveler's Wife | Audrey Niffenegger
A dazzling novel in the most untraditional fashion, this is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger's cinematic storytelling that makes the novel's unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant. An enchanting debut and a spellbinding tale of fate and belief in the bonds of love, The Time Traveler's Wife is destined to captivate readers for years to come.

I don‘t know why I waited so long to read this, but I‘m so glad @Cinfhen put it into my hands . Because it was goooooood. I can‘t really believe this is a debut, but I‘m definitely up for reading more of Niffenegger‘s work. I couldn‘t put it down, and I‘m so happy I had time to immerse myself into the world of time travellers and love for the weekend ❤️

LiteraryinLititz I‘m glad you liked it! I was blown away by this one as well. In case you‘re tempted to read her next book, my two cents is that it was WEIRD. Not necessarily good weird, just weird. My sister thought so too. But everyone has different tastes! And we still talk about this book, so I‘ll give her props for a memorable story! 😋 (edited) 2mo
KarenUK I loved this one, and loved Her Fearful symmetry too! 🤷‍♀️..... it‘s set in one of my favorite places, Highgate cemetery in London. It‘s a perfect read for Halloween! 👻 😊💕 2mo
BarbaraBB I enjoyed this one too. 2mo

Lcsmcat I second @LiteraryinLititz I loved the tagged book but felt Her Fearful Symmetry was just weird. I couldn‘t suspend disbelief for it like I could for the tagged book. 2mo
Jess861 I feel as though I'm one of the only ones who didn't enjoy this book. I found it impossible to get into and it took me forever to read. None the less, glad you enjoyed it :) 2mo
Cinfhen @Jess861 don‘t feel bad, I bailed which is how Katja ended up with my copy 🥰I‘m so glad the book found the right reader!!! It wasn‘t for me. 2mo
Kalalalatja @LiteraryinLititz @KarenUK @Lcsmcat I normally like weird, so I‘ll give it a go, but keep my expectations in check 👍 @Jess861 @Cinfhen one woman‘s “trash” another woman‘s treasure 😉 2mo
Lcsmcat I hope you enjoy it. 2mo
Centique I loved this one too! I thought Her Fearful Symmetry was super creepy - like @LiteraryinLititz it‘s stayed with me - even though I was creeped out at the time, I like looking back on it 😊 1mo

When I saw the #LetsTravelJuly challenge was #Concert I thought of this book.
🎤 One of my favorite parts was that Henry kept time traveling to a concert. Even if you see the same artist more than once, no concert experience can be duplicated.
I love imagining having that ability bc I have been to some awesome concerts I wish I could go back to!
🎸 What concert would you go to again if you had the power?

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Book club is in one week, and I'm just starting what I suddenly realized is a 550 page book. That's going to be a challenge to finish in a week, but I have a paper copy, an ebook, and an audiobook to help me. So I can get through it three times faster?? Anyone else read a book in multiple formats?

tjwill I love this book so much. I hope you will too, so it will be easy for you to get through on time. 4mo
hes7 Good luck! 4mo
ImperfectCJ I'm doing that right now (with The Road to Unfreedom by Timothy Snyder). I wish I'd done it with The Time Traveler's Wife because the time jumps were difficult to keep track of on audio. Or maybe that was just because I was listening while my son was a newborn and I kept getting interrupted (or nodding off). 4mo

I just finished a re-read of this book because it was chosen for my work‘s next book club meeting. I remember reading it years ago (maybe in college, maybe the end of high school- I can‘t remember) and I remember really enjoying it. On this go around, I found it difficult to get into and keep track of chronologically. However, about 70% of the way in I was hooked again and fell in love with the characters and story once more.

The Time Traveler's Wife | Audrey Niffenegger

“...I want to tell you, again, I love you. Our love has been the thread through the labyrinth, the net under the high-wire walker, the only real thing in this strange life of mine that I could ever trust. Tonight I feel that my love for you has more density than I do, myself: as though it could linger on after me and surround you, keep you, hold you.”

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. 8mo

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. 6mo

[#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.
