I bought this book awhile ago, before the movie was announced. I hadn’t though twice about it, being busy with other things. When the movie came out, I figured I would read it before seeing the movie. This is possibly the best book I have ever read. I am 16, and I adore reading to no end. I have read many, many good books in my lifetime. However, I don’t think I have ever read a book that was as well-written as this one. It was full of description and emotion and left me feeling so utterly satisfied, I can’t even explain. If you are looking for an amazing read that you’ll probably spend the whole day reading, this is it.

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.
