The Time Travelers Wife - Audrey Niffenegger. Latest Read.


Gold Member
The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger came out out top of the poll. I know some readers have already finished it (that's reccommendation eh?) others read fairly quickly but some of us.....well me:D are a bit slow! Therefore I propose we set a date for discussion 4 weeks from now, as this seems to have been long enough for everyone with previous reads.

Discussion will start Sunday 4th Feb, of course if we all love it/have duvet days/pack the kids off to Grannys/stay out of the arcade:eek: Or for whatever reason find we have loads of spare time and all get finished sooner, we can of course bring the date forward.

Hope you all enjoy it, and feel free to post snippets on here in the meantime, without giving away the story to others of course.

About The Time Traveler's Wife
The Blurb:

This exceptional first novel is the story of Henry and Clare, who have known each other since Clare was 6 and Henry was 36, and were married when Clare was 20 and Henry 28. This is possible only because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he flashes to other points in time, usually moments of emotional gravity for him. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

Audrey Niffenegger explores the effects this condition has 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 strain to live as normal a life as they can, pursuing goals that will be familiar to most readers - steady jobs, love, good friends, children of their own. That these are all threatened by something Henry can neither prevent nor control makes this story profoundly moving and entirely unforgettable.
