The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

No. of pages: 518
Rating: 10/10

Synopsis: The Time Traveler's Wife, is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry finds himself periodically displaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing. Clare and Henry attempt to live normal lives, pursuing familiar goals - steady jobs, good friends, children of their own. All of this is threatened by something they can neither prevent nor control, making their story intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

Review: This has been my favourite book for about 4 years now, it has a perfect blend of science, romance and drama. I love the way it flicks around in time, you get a real sense of how it must be so disorientating for Henry to randomly be shoved into a place in time and not know why he's there. I love the interaction with an older Henry and a young Clare, throughout the whole book you see so many different facets of their relationship and how it evolves over the years that Clare is growing up. I adore the writing of this book and find it hard to believe it's a debut novel! There's lots of humourous little comments, and she describes things so fantastically. I just love this book so much, and can only hope the film version will be as good when it's released this year!
