Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A #1 New York Times Bestseller, A Selection of the Today Show Book Club, A Finalist for Book Sense Fiction of the Year -- 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.

Review:
“Highly original first novel…Niffenegger has written a soaring love story illuminated by dozens of finely observed details and scenes…It is a fair tribute to [Niffenegger’s] skill and sensibility to say that the book leaves a reader with the impression of life’s riches and strangeness rather than of easy thrills.” -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

" The Time Traveler's Wife is a Houdini box of a novel, filled with spring latches and trapdoors. Henry and Clare's love affair zigs and zags across decades -- at times touching, childish, sexy, tragic but always true." -- Caroline Preston, author of Lucy Crocker 2.0 and Jacke by Josie

"Niffenegger imagines this story of an accidental time traveler and the love of his life with grace and humanity. Fiercely inventive, slyly ambitious, and lovingly told, The Time Traveler's Wife sparkles as it fearlessly explores the delicate interplay of love and time." -- Anne Ursu, author of The Disapparation of James and Spilling Clarence

" The Time Traveler's Wife is an odd and enchanting love story... 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

"Cleverly executed and tastefully furnished... a first from fine newcomer Niffenegger" -- Kirkus Reviews

From the Back Cover

Review:
Audrey Niffenegger's innovative debut, The Time Traveler's Wife, is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry finds himself periodically displaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

The Time Traveler?s Wife depicts the effects of time travel on Henry and Clare's marriage and their passionate love for each other, as the story unfolds from both points of view. Clare and Henry attempt to live normal lives, pursuing familiar goals -- steady jobs, good friends, children of their own. All of this is threatened by something they can neither prevent nor control, making their story intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.
