   I was not that impressed with The Time Traveler's Wife. Although I will give the author credit for originality on the story line and creativity to come up with an explanation of the existence of Time Travelers, the rest of the story I didn't care for. Call me conservative or prude or what have you, I'm not a big fan of the sexual scenes in the story. I felt like I was almost reading a romance novel with some of the scenes. They were very detailed and some were unrealistic. …

A cute love story but I did not feel very involved in it. Could be a good book to bring on the beach this summer

Couldn't put it down. A little confusing at times, but an original storyline with a great plot.

My husband came and found me bawling my eyes out at 3 AM as I was finishing the last chapter of this book after an epic all night read. THAT is how much I loved it, I couldn't put it down. It took several more reads for me to wrap my head around the general time line of things and to ponder whether Claire ever had a choice in her mate since Henry basically showed up in her life as a child, but I always highly recommend this book to friends to read so its a winner to me!

I agree, this was a great book. Unfortunately it gets jammed into the sci-fi section of most bookstores (though not "unfortunately" if you stumbled across it there), when it merits attention in the front and center rows. Great writing, great tale, great twists. Left me wanting more.

Great book and great movie based on the book.

I like the book a lot better than the movie.
Quick Tip by . June 07, 2010
Unbelievable. I loved it. You have to get through the first 50 pages and then it gets better. It's hard to follow all the time-travel but you get used to it. The movie kills it, though.

The Time Traveler's Wife (movie poster)
I've been reading about how The Time Traveller's Wife was actually Audrey Niffenegger's first novel - she had originally intended it to be a graphic novel, but realised that it was hard to portray the concept of time travel in images.      It's actually quite amazing how she started out with quite a small novel, deliberately choosing a small publishing company (she attributes this to her older punk roots, which spurred her to go with the smaller, less corporate company) and then …

One of my all-time favorite books. A beauitful, emotional story that is complicated and well-written. A certain tear jerker.
review by . April 13, 2010
In her debut novel, "The Time Traveler's Wife," Audrey Niffenegger has managed to create a unique work of fiction that transcends many traditional genres. Time travel is one of the most common science fiction tropes, and until I read this book I thought that I have already seen everything that can be done with it. However, by combining it with a drama and love story, and by making it a form of medical condition, Niffenegger has managed to breathe fresh life into this motif, and do it in such an …
