Book Review - "The Time Traveller's Wife" by Audrey Nieffenegger

Publisher - MacAdamCage
Release Date - 2003
Number of Pages - 518

 When Henry meets Clare, he is twenty-eight and she is twenty. Henry has never met Clare before; Clare has known Henry since she was six. Impossible but true, because Henry finds himself periodically displaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. Henry and Clare's attempts to live normal lives are threatened by a force they can neither prevent nor control, making their passionate love story intensely moving and entirely unforgettable. The Time Traveler's Wife is a story of fate, hope and belief, and more than that, it's about the power of love to endure beyond the bounds of time

My Thoughts:

1. The first 100 pages, were very good. I have really enjoyed the chemistry between young Clare and Henry from the future.
2. However, after the first 100 pages, I started getting bored. The story was not as interesting and it was less relatable.
3. I found there to be way too many references to pop culture, names, terms and other stuff like that.
4. I could not finish it, because it was starting to be very draggy and slow.

Overall, I thought it was just OK. It started off well, but then it just became more boring.

Rating - C+


  1. I'm sad you didn't like this book- I loved it whn I read it a few years ago! I found Henry to be pretty damn sexy :-) x

    1. This book was quite outside my comfort zone, which could be the reason for me not liking it. But I'm glad you liked it!
