Just this last weekend I finished a book someone handed me at the Blue Moon II event. It’s called The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and it is an exceptional read.
Henry is a man with a rare chromosomal disease that makes him time travel randomly to moments in both his past and future. At the age of 28 he meets his wife to be, Clare. Clare, however, has known Henry since she was 6 years old, as he started visiting her in the past while in his mid-thirties (therefore after he’d already met her in her 20’s). Confused? It’s okay. This book isn’t a stumper. It will all make sense when you read it. At it’s heart it is a story of two people meant for each other having to battle time itself to stay together.
This is an exceptionally well written and engaging book that has already generated a huge buzz. The book is already going into it’s 2nd printing, making first editions very rare, and is expected to be chosen by the Today Show as its book of the month. Unconfirmed rumor has it that Brad Pitt has optioned it as a movie as well.
So go out, buy it, and read it. I personally guarantee you will enjoy it if you like to read contemporary fiction.
