Time is nothing. But to Henry DeTamble, time is a necessity. It is time that brought him to the love of his life, Clare Abshire, an ordinary artist living an extraordinary life. Henry is a time traveler, a prisoner of fate. He can’t control when it happens, where he goes, or when he comes back to reality. But in the midst of the infinity of time, he finds love with Clare, whom he met when she was just a child.
The Time Traveler’s Wife is an exhilarating tale of a couple trapped across two different worlds. But it is time that will bring their love closer together. Audrey Niffenegger’s skillfully crafted story of interwoven characters and the alluring tale of their love kept me wanting more. As I take part in their epic journey, I truly feel as though I, too, am a lost wanderer in time, patiently waiting for the love of mine to rescue me.
The Time Traveler’s Wife has forever altered my view of time. I was left stunned and I truly believe that readers will understand the beauty, endurance, and fortitude of love. The characters are honest and vivid and will not fail to captivate you. Henry and Clare will leave you heartbroken and amazed in this powerfully beautiful tale. Haunting and riveting, this story is an imaginative and romantic classic that will forever brave the end of time.
