"The Time-Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger

Reviewed by: Karen Ong

Book Watch, Vol. 1, Issue 3

The Time Traveler’s Wife tells the unusual love story of Henry and Clare. What makes their story different is that Henry has a genetic condition that causes him to time-travel to his past or future without his control.

When Clare is 20, she meets 28-year-old Henry in his present. Though Clare has known him practically almost all her life since he has appeared to her intermittently since she was six, for the present Henry, however, it would be a few more years before he would meet the six-year-old Clare. Confusing? At times it could be, with Henry appearing, disappearing, and reappearing in Clare’s life. But, as the story unfolds, this quirk ceases to become strange and instead contributes to making the story even more poignant.
“I hate to be where she is not, when she is not. And yet, I am always going, and she cannot follow.” – Henry
(The movie version starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams will come out in August 2009.)

I love this book! It's very original and it's difficult to put down. Even the movie looks nice, the trailer for it has just been released.

It is unutterably sweet and sad ... The only book that, months after reading it, still moves me to tears when I think of it.
Highly recommended Zespri New Zealand Golden kiwi fruit information
