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.

The Time Traveler's Wife is a great book, it's a beautiful love story between Henry, who can accidentally time travel, and Clare, who has to live with that. Henry can't control when he time travels, so sometimes he just disappears into another period in time. The relationship is different for both of them, as they both meet each other for their first time in different periods of their life. It may sound a little confusing but the book explains it quite well how things work for both of them. It   (+1 vote)
