The Time Traveler’s Wife

by  Audrey Niffenegger

This is a simple story about a man who randomly travels back and forth in time to different points in his own life.  It’s both a deeply personal story of a relationship between two people, and a fascinating take on the time travel genre.  The ending is friggin heartbreaking.  Enjoy!




What’s it about?

This is the extraordinary love story of Clare and Henry who met when Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. In the face of this force they can neither prevent nor control, Henry and Clare’s struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.
