This book is THE best book ever!! It is number one on the New York Times best seller list, and is very interesting and amazing!!!!! I love this book so much. The movie is not that great, especially compared to the book, but it is ok.

I loved this book too. I am afraid to see the movie though since they do not always follow and often destroy the plot line. Highly recommend

Claire Abshire is passionately in love with Henry De Tamble. She’s known him since she was a girl. When she meets him again as a young woman in Chicago, Claire is ready to begin the romance of her life. But there’s a catch. Henry has a rare genetic condition that causes him to become displaced in time at moments of stress. He suddenly finds himself decades in the past or future, naked and alone, with only the younger or older version of himself in on the secret. The Henry who Claire meets in Chicago hasn’t traveled back to her childhood yet. So he’s confused when beautiful, intelligent Claire approaches him, but certainly intrigued and definitely attracted. The romance of their lives does indeed begin—it just takes a few more years for Henry to catch up to their first meeting. The nuances of Henry’s time traveling are intricate, but richly and delicately narrated in turns by Henry and Claire as they pursue their relationship in the past, present, and future. And despite the complexities of that relationship, the story is always told with heartfelt sincerity and emotion, not to mention a cast of finely-drawn characters and a few surprising twists and turns. The book is a best-seller and a film adaptation is a major motion picture; ultimately, The Time Traveler’s Wife is a classic love story.

I agree that this book has it all: a unique story line (time travel), great characterization all in a well-edited, well written story. This was really fun to read and I didn’t want it to end. I highly recommend this book; it’s definitely a winner.
