The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book had been on my "to-read" list for quite some time. With the movie coming out, I decided to read it since I can't see the movie before I read the book!
The book is about a man who discovers at a young age that he can time travel. The author takes the reader to the past and future piecing together people and the things that take place in his life. He is traveling through time all the while, staying connected to his one true love, Clare. He loves Clare, but he can't just stay. It is the kind of love story that makes you long for them to be together and be happy. It is a very unique love story.
In the beginning, I had a hard time figuring out where he was and what he was doing there. All the time traveling and being in the future, past, left me wondering where the book was taking me??? About half way into the book, things seemed to finally click for me. I couldn't put it down. I loved this book. It was like no other book I have ever read. I liked how the author took you along with each character in time, but didn't give you all the information at once and made you piece things together. Once I got to the end, I didn't want it to end. I wanted to just keep reading . . . this is one of the few books I definitely would re-read. There is so much going on in the past and present, I'm sure I missed something. This is a a must read!
