After about five minutes of swearing and shivering and hoping to hell you can just disappear, you start walking in any direction, which will eventually yield a farmhouse, where you have the option of stealing or explaining. Stealing will sometimes land you in jail, but explaining is more tedious and time-consuming and involves lying anyway, and also sometimes results in being hauled off to jail, so what the hell.

Read by William Hope and Laurel Lefkow. On the surface, Henry and Clare Detamble are a normal couple living in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Henry works at the Newberry Library and Clare creates abstract paper art, but the cruel reality is that Henry is a prisoner of time. It sweeps him back and forth at its leisure, from the present to the past, with no regard for where he is or what he is doing. It drops him naked and vulnerable into another decade, wearing an age-appropriate face.

OK, full disclosure: I've read the Time Traveller's Wife 4 times. I've also got a weakness for Victorian novelists and Shakespearian tragedies, not to mention Ray Bradbury's brand of scifi, if you can even call it scifi. TTW has elements of all of these, and for me at least, it works so well that, despite Niffenegger's mediocre prose, the plot s so cleverly constructed, the story so romantic, sad and beautiful, the characters so memorable, that every couple of years I get an uncontrollable urge to read it again. Of course there are plot elements and time travel paradoxes that stretch the borders of credibility, but no more than half a dozen bizarre elements in 100 Years of Solitude. And this book makes you feel good, restores your faith in romantic love somehow, without becoming overwhelmingly sentimental or syrapy. It's a guilty pleasure,reading this book again and again in a post-modern era where to enjoy such fiction is just totally uncool. So go ahead, read it in secret, especially if you're a guy like me, who reads Jane Austin and the Brönte sisters on the sly.
It is interesting how the books that defy confinement to a single genre provide the most intriging premises. The Time Traveler’s Wife is neither romance, nor science fiction, nor pure fantasy. Henry, the time traveler, is the protagonist, with time itself as the antagonist. It is a man versus nature story told with new ideas. Points for originality.

My quibbles with the story are with Clare, the wife. Much of the story is centered on her, especially when her husband is traveling, yet her character seems underdeveloped. I kept waiting for something, some event, to endear her to me, but it was never to be. It was a missed opportunity that knocked a star from the review.

I’m still glad I read it. It is long, but even if you don’t finish it, the interesting ideas Niffenegger presents are worth a look.
A long time ago a friend loved this book so much she bought it for me too. I have since read it over and over. It is gorgeous and perfect and sad and joyous every time. I will never see the movie because the book is better on the moviescreen of my mind than anybody could ever film.
Read The Time Traveller's Wife, then read it again. And again.
I am a sucker for stories about time travel. This is a classic in that genre. Henry, the hero, is afflicted with something called "Chrono Displacement Disorder," which is mumbo-jumbo for the fact that he has no control over randomly jumping back and forth in his own timeline. Claire, the heroine, is a normal, unaffected person.

I recommend this book to anyone who has the following characteristics: (1) Slightly nerdy, and enjoys stories having to do with time travel, and (2) Enjoys books with a strong female character and (3) Enjoys fantasies with a hunky male character.
I just reread this for about the 5th time. It's such an amazing story. Niffenegger is a tough, but great, writer. As a person who doesn't like violence, this book hits my limit, but the amazing romance and the masterful writing make it well worth reading. The characters are fully fleshed and draw the reader in to the fascinating story.
This is a story about two people (Henry and Claire) and the challenges of their relationship. In the case of Henry and Claire, their biggest challenge is Henry's spontaneous time traveling and the problems it creates - uncertainty, absence, two lives that are lived in two different orders, questions surrounding free will, anxiety about Henry's safety, issues with conceiving a child.

I had mixed feelings about this book. Once I got into the rhythm of jumping about in time, I was very intrigued by the story. I thought it was an exciting premise and expected more twists and turns because Henry's time traveling is dangerous. However, the story doesn't really take that direction. It remains a story about relationship ups and downs, and love and loss.

I thought this book had many moments that were very thought-provoking or very moving. Some of those scenes or themes really stayed with me. At the same time, the story also got bogged down by a lot of details about punk bands they like, food they cook, etc. Dreams are often described in extreme detail (not my favorite thing). By around the mid-way point, I was getting bored and I would set the book aside for days at a time. I think you could easily trim 100+ pages from this book and not lose anything significant.

By the end, I was eagerly turning through the last 100 pages quickly to reach the resolution, and that last section had some very touching moments. However, there is also a lot of build-up to the final scene that occurs on the last 2 pages and I was a little let down by it. The final scene was barely more than a page and I thought more detail would have been nice since both the reader and one of the main characters are waiting for this moment to arrive. I felt a little sold short by it.

Also - a side note: Though it's called "The Time Traveler's Wife," I really didn't feel like I knew Claire as well as I knew Henry. It seemed like more of the alternating 1st person perspectives were from Henry's point of view, and I cared for him more as a character. I felt some distance from Claire's character.

Overall: Interesting premise. Pretty writing (though sometimes it meanders and the pace is often slow). Thought-provoking. Dreamy, sad love story. Just don't go into it expecting an exciting time travel adventure.
This book is so touching! I am amazed at how the author kept the storyline going, without confusing the reader. I understood it all. I hear that another book is coming about Alba, and I will certainly purchase that one as well! Thanks for the great read and the tears (my sign of a great book!)
I read and reread this book over the years, it's deep feelings of recognised love, draped over the twisted armature of time travel like one of Clare's sculptures. I always fall back in love with my wife, when i read this book, so i will return to it again and again like Henry pulled back to important moments of his past, and precious moments of his future.
