Love unaffiliated by time

The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger, is a breathtaking and one of the most engrossing books I have read in a long time. Henry DeTamble and Clare Abshire, the enchanting characters of the book, have invincible love for each other. As their relationship is second to none, the book is a poignant lovestory along Henry’s intriguing and intimidating adventures to either past or future of his own life, completely naked since he’s not able to bring any clothes with him.

The book alternates between Henry and Clare’s points of view, so you can easily get to the bottom of their aspects of life and the feelings they have for each other. Having read from Clare’s point of view while Henry’s involuntary away time traveling, you can really feel the aversion, anguish and the way she’s longing for her husband she met as a six-year-old.

I would say that the most fascinating thing is that Clare has known and loved Henry since she was six, but when they run into each other in their twenties Henry has never seen her before though she claims they’ve known each other all her life! Being married to Clare, in his fourties, Henry suddenly finds himself time traveling to her past and meeting Clare as an adolescent. This impassioned, sentimental and endearing lovestory will stay in my mind for good, and I highly recommend this book for everyone!

    The content was linked between the title delicately which was pleasent to notice after reading a very well written book review. There were many very subtle words that even I didn’t know! It felt like I was reading a book review from a blog or website, where the writer was an experienced book reviewer.

    You were very positive to book and it seemed that the book had no downsides, so it wasn’t balanced with your reading experience and the plot, but you really seemed to enjoy reading it. To me, there was a bit too much plot telling, but all in that, I could not tell what is the book really going to be like, before I read it.

    It seemed that you really put effort on this and it was definetly worth it! The last sentence of your review was wonderful and it felt like you should read it again sometime. You even had a picture of the book! Well done!
