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 points of view and you get to really know how multiple characters truly feel and think.
I am sad that I don’t remember it as clearly now as I would like. I think I am going to read it again, which isn’t something that I do very often, if ever. I highly recommend the Time Traveler’s Wife if you like books with twists and turns, which I do.
