Isn’t it Romantic? Book & Movie Recommendation

timetravelerswife

A dazzling novel in the most untraditional fashion, this is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare’s passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger’s cinematic storytelling that makes the novel’s unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant.

A librarian? Time travel? Well, I’m hooked. And if you’re short on time, the film version starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana is pleasant enough, but the adaptation doesn’t hold a candle to this truly unique novel.

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
