Molly Reviews: The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Title: The Time Traveler's Wife
Author: Audrey Niffenegger
Pages: 546
Publishing Company: Mariner Books
Publication Date: July 5, 2003

My Rating:  PhotobucketPhotobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Synopsis: 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 impossible romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger's cinematic storytelling that makes the nobel's unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant.

Review: Wow. This book was absolutely thrilling. Niffenegger is an amazing storyteller. I'm simply blown away by how fantastic this book was. I don't think I've ever been so impressed by a piece of literature before. The story is unconventional and something that definitely has to be read more than once to be completely appreciated, but it has definitely made a lasting impression. I don't think I'll ever find a book as unique as this one (probably not true).

If you're looking for something interesting or something to jump back into reading with, I recommend this book. This book is written through two points of view and jumps around throughout time. It reminds me of a book we just finished in English class called The Color of Water but that one had more structure to it than this one. The chapters vary in length and they also can get a bit confusing if you aren't paying attention to the dates and who's POV you're reading. Otherwise this book is the most fantastical thing and you should definitely pick it up and read it.
Now it's time for me to watch the movie. Bye guys!!!!!
