Henry is a time traveller, not by choice as this is caused by a rare condition due to a genetic default. He has no control of when and where he travels, it could be the past or it could be the future. This is both a curse and a blessing for Henry. With his ability, he met and fell in love with Claire and is able to visit people long gone or see the outcome of the future. However, his abilities also places him in dangerous situations seeing that he often arrives at a certain period or place naked, with no cash and always trying to save himself from terrible situations.
I love the romance between Henry and Clare. Despite the fact that they met through a very unique situation, their love for each other and the problems they faced seemed real. I love the writing style which was easy to follow and despite the jump from one era to another it was an easy read. I love the fact that it’s written from a first person point of view so you get to understand both characters and what they each think and feel. I don’t know why I’m wasting my time outlining everything that I love about this book so to cut it short... I.LOVE.THIS.BOOK.
Carl V from Stainless Steel Droppings recently dropped by my blog and noticed that I was reading The Time Traveler’s Wife, to quote his actual comment, ‘I see you are reading The Time Traveler’s Wife now. Ah, what an amazing book. I envy you experiencing it for the first time.’... Carl, completely understand where you are coming from with this comment as this book is definitely a MUST read and I too will envy anyone reading it for the first time!
Btw, can someone help me figure this out... does The Time Traveler's Wife fall under science fiction and fantasy or does it fall under romance?
