Book Blog- The Time Traveler's Wife

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.

Yes, this is an adult book.  Yes, it was made into a marginally okay movie that in no way did this story justice.  Yes, I wish the ending were different.  But this is one of my favorite books ever.  I love the way that the main character's ability to travel through time is a curse.  I loved how Henry went back in time to visit his loved ones in the past.  I loved the way Claire meets her future husband (literally) and falls in love with him long before she ever meets him in the present.  I remember dying for that moment when they would finally meet in the present, and  I loved that the tables were flipped completely with Claire knowing Henry and Henry being the one in the dark for a change.  

This love story is unconventional, gorgeous, dark and addictive.
