It’s hard for me to choose one favorite book. The truth is that I have many, but for the sake of this post I will choose The Time Traveler’s Wife. A love story and a science fiction story rolled into one.
Henry has a condition called Chrono Displacement Disorder which causes him to involuntarily travel through time. Henry travels to places in time that are important to him, even if he doesn’t know this at the time. The book is about Henry and his wife Clare who, to him, he met when he was 28 and she was 20. To her, they met when she was 6.
I read this book about four years ago and I loved it. I don’t typically read books that would be considered a love story, but this is one with a twist. It was a unique, sweet story that kept me reading. The story alternates between Henry and Clare’s point of view and you get to really know how multiple characters truly feel and think.
I have recently learned that this book is going to be a movie which doesn’t come as a surprise. I only hope that the movie does the book justice.
*Note: I guess the movie came out a few years ago *blush*. I have to admit that I don’t have much time for movies anymore and am pretty out of touch with what’s out. I didn’t know I was this out of touch. Haha! I guess I need to rent it to see if it did the book justice.
