The Time Traveler's Wife

A funny often poignant tale of boy meets girl with a twist what if one of them couldn't stop slipping in and out of time Highly original and imaginative this debut novel raises uestions about life love and the effects of time on relationshipsAudrey Niffenegger’s innovative debut The Time Traveler’s Wife is the story of Clare a beautiful art student and Henry an adventuresome librarian who have known each other since Clare was six. Why can t there be a negative star rating I hated hated this book And yes I did finish it All way too many pages of it But in my defense it was foolishly the only book I brought with me when I was hospitalized for 24 hours after wisdom tooth surgery and when your options are daytime soaps or this wretched bookwell at least I got to read the ending and conclude definitively that it wasn t worth it Okay now that I ve gotten a bit of a rant out let me be a little organized about my dislikes1 The sex More accurately the sex after sex after sex in graphic detail not pornographic detail granted but WAY than I wanted to picture at all sorts of different ages Wow Yeah I just hated that If it serves a purpose to the plot fine include it but don t give me every single move I just don t need to know that2 The plot was convoluted I can say this fairly because I read it in practically one sitting and while I was able to keep things straight it would have served the book better to not attempt to take in so many sub plots and minutia 3 Okay I will admit that for having a sci fi premise the concept of time travel as outlined here was at least moderately believable What I didn t like was that it wasn t especially original anyone seen Journeyman yet had the pretension that it was4 The whole crux of the novel was the great love story between Henry and Claire Yet as a reader I m much interested and moved by two NICE people ending up together and staying together than two people I just don t like that much Let s face it Henry is not a great guy And there s that whole poor rich girl thing going on with Claire I just wasn t feeling itOkay all of that said I really don t recommend this book to anyone I realize there are a lot of people that like it I know I checked the reviews expecting to be completely vindicated but alas it seems I m in the minority but those people who like it apparently enjoy a different class of book than I do There are so many great works out there why waste your time with this

And Henry was thirty six and were married when Clare was twenty three and Henry thirty one Impossible but true because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono Displacement Disorder periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time pulled to moments of emotional gravity in his life past and future His disappearances are spontaneous his experiences unpredictable alternately harrowing and amusi. Let me start this by saying I was very excited to read this book I thought it was going to be good It is not in any way good It could have been good the idea could have soared but in Niffenegger s hands it was destroyed by laundry lists of grocery bag contents street directions and punk bands until I even said out loud than once okay I get it He bought groceries he knows how to get around in Chicago Clare likes to clean her studio he is not just a punk rock poser but the real deal complete with his cherry red Docsetc Seriously this stuff does not pass for good writing in any circles The tedious minutae of life is boring and makes the author look like she is trying to pad her story for bulkThe worst part of this book was that the whole thing was based on contrived plot devices The whole time I was reading I was wondering why the author chose to have him time travel naked To me it seemed like if it weren t for his constant pursuit of clothes there may be some real chance at something actually happening in the story Then at the end of the book I realized that the whole naked thing was a tool to achieve the amputations at the end Where was this woman s editor How do things like this get published this story was nowhere near polished and pared down enough to make it to publication Also the gory miscarriage scenes yuck There was no introspect into the character s hearts and minds How does Henry feel about knowing when he is going to die How does Clare deal with him being a time travel We will never know because the book was too full of what they did and how they did it and nothing about how they felt I don t care about that stuff These characters were selfish pretentious and self absorbed And the credibility goes right out the window when they win the lottery Come onI honestly don t see why this book is so well loved This book angered me
