~~~Standing in another pair of shoes.~~~ First of all can I say that I am not expecting a great deal of reads for this review. It's been reviewed exceptionally well by ten other members and I don't think there is a lot that I can add to their reviews. So why bother to review it at all? Simply because its a wonderful book and if I left it any longer then the film will be out and if its anywhere as good as the book then I expect a lot of people to start reading the book because of the film...if you know what I mean. I have never heard of the author before now and will I read any of her new novels on the strength of this, her debut novel? I honestly ... Read the complete review

If I was stuck on a desert island for the rest of my life with only one book to read it would, withouth a doubt, be this one. Niffenegger tells a beautiful tale about the trails and tribulations of a rather unusual couple, Henry and Clare, Henry is a time traveller and this book charters how their relationship grows in a world where he is never certain how long he can stay. This story is a love story of the most beautiful kind, Niffenegger pulls the reader in making you really care for the two characters and the problems which arise from Henrys Time travelling. This story shows all sides of their relationship which starts when Clare was six and Henry ... Read the complete review

Part brilliantly-plotted time travelling epic, part deeply affecting love story, Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveller's Wife is a stunning novel. Comparable to little that has gone before, this genre-spanning tale relates the story of Henry and Claire, two star-crossed lovers. Henry suffers from an extremely rare, initially nameless genetic disorder with causes him to periodically become "unstuck" in time. As if losing his footing on the ladder of his life, he tumbles backwards or forwards, visiting places that were or will be significant to him. He does not change into the person he was or will be - instead he is simply a temporary presence in the time, ... Read the complete review

I had heard a lot of good reviews about Time Traveler's Wife before I bought my copy and boy did the book live up to it's hype! This has to be the best book I've read in ages and has become my absolute favourite book. The story focuses on Henry and Claire. Henry is simply a time traveller and Claire is his wife. On a deeper level though the novel explores the couple trying to understand the illness that Henry has and they try to build their lives around it but with Henry disappearing without any notice it doesn't make life any easier. Henry's grounding though seems to be Claire, he visits her from a young age and their love soon blossoms but Henry ... Read the complete review

Considering this book has been reviewed to death I am amazed anyone is reading this. However, I can see why it has been talked about so much; having finally give in and read in to so many advisers, I can say I was pleasantly surprised. I think time travel has been done to death in science fiction, and everyone does it differently. Some do it with hand held machines, others with fabulous vehicles...some with worm holes. In the case of Henry, it is something else altogether; Henry does not spend his time scouring history for major events, or in deed travelling to the future hunting for lottery numbers. Henry's one mission in life is simply to live a normal life. ... Read the complete review
