This extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare and Henry who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. His disappearances are spontaneous and his experiences are alternately harrowing and amusing. "The Time Traveler's Wife" depicts the effects of time travel on Henry and Clare's passionate love for each other with grace and humour. Their struggle to lead normal lives in the face of a force they can neither prevent nor control is intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

Reviews

"Moving, but worth the heartbreak" -- Glynis Barber Daily Express "'The Time Traveler's Wife is one of those books where you read the first paragraph and you're hooked -unmissable'" Irish Independent "'Henry's journeys back and forth are by turns slapstick noir and unbearably poignant, and Clare's child and teen narrations disturbingly pitch-perfect. Philosophical speculation occurs in the most unlikely devices and morality, despite the temptations of plot, remains intact. This is alarmingly close to perfection, and balm to the jaded'" Scotland on Sunday "'The central story is so strong and touching - a universal story - ingenious - a rare book'" Evening Standard "'Wonky, sexy, incredible'" The Times

the most touching part of the book (my favorite part in the whole story actually) is when claire and henry finally decide to try for a baby. claire miscarries count lessly, and we the readers find out it is because the foetuses keep time travelling out of her womb, and when alba is born it is truely beautiful

This is among the very best fiction I have read recently. It is a love story between two people who have a special handicap in that one of them travels to different times along their life timeframes. Whenever they meet, one of them knows more, the other less, about each other - and it is not necessarily the time traveller who has the most knowledge every time.
But they are sure of one thing, of which most of us aren't, and that is that their love will last. Even beyond death - and of that, like most of us, they ignore the hour, and when it comes, the pain is as deep as it is for anyone of us, and as impossible to mitigate..

I found this book suprisingly good. It is like something I've never read before. The Time Traveller's Wife is a stroy about a man who has a disorder that makes him travel through time. It's on some of these time travels that Clare meets and falls in love with her future husband. This a romance/drama story with a difference. Great read. Definitly a must. You won't be able to put it down. A ggod holiday read or one to curl up on the couch with on a rainy night.
