This extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare and Henry who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. 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 pulled suddenly into his past or future. His disappearances are spontaneous and his experiences are alternately harrowing and amusing. The Time Traveler’s Wife depicts the effects of time travel on Henry and Clare’s passionate love for each other with grace and humor. Their struggle to lead normal lives in the face of a force they can neither prevent nor control is intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.
I don’t know where to even begin with The Time Traveler’s Wife. I laughed, I was shocked and of course I cried, a lot. It was such a heartbreaking and heartwarming story all at the same time. This is definitely one of those books that will stay with you long after you finish. I know that I will be thinking about Henry and Clare for weeks to come.
The movie looks promising from what I have seen. I’m happy I read the book before seeing the movie because they are never as good. But I do look forward to seeing it. Here’s the trailer if you haven’t saw it or just want to watch again:
