Audrey Niffenegger

 

The only book of Audrey Niffenegger’s I read is The Time Traveler’s Wife.
This is a dazzling story about Clare, a beautiful, strong-minded art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian. Clare met Henry when she was only 6 and Henry was 36. They married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true. Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: his genetic clock randomly resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, he is pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous and unpredictable, and lend a spectacular urgency to Clare and Henry’s unconventional love story. Their attempt to live normal lives together is threatened by something they can neither prevent nor control which makes their story intensely moving and entirely unforgettable
(I copied some of it  from the goodreads web site, because is a great description of this book).

When I first started to read this book, I was a little bit bored, it stared slowly for me and I even contemplating of giving up on it, but I am so glad I stuck with it. I am not a big fan of romances, but this one was different. Not only was it unusual with the time traveling aspect but also had a hint of suspense, good humor and by the middle of the book, fast action. The author also did a great job with the ending of the book, by preparing us for what is going to happen, I was hoping for the alternative, but deeply in my heart I knew what was going to happen.
In summary – if you feel like reading romantic book, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” is a good option. This is not your typical sappy romance, with lame story line that is hard to read, for most guys.  I think this book has more to offer, so give a try.
