Book Description

This is the extraordinary love story of Clare and Henry who met when Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. In the face of this force they can neither prevent nor control, Henry and Clare's struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

Awake in the Dream World by Audrey Niffenegger Awake in the Dream World, Hardback (December 2015)

Otherworldly, provocative, and strange, the author's art is a vital a part of her vision as her best-selling novels The Time Traveler's Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry. This is a mid-career retrospective of her work, reflecting her talent for cultivating a narrative through pictures and her own confrontations with life, mortality, and magic.

Book Review: Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - Reviewed by (14 Jun 2011)

The Time Traveler’s Wife is Audrey Niffenegger’s second novel. This is the story of Henry DeTamble (the Time Traveler) and Clare Abshire (the Time Traveler’s Wife). Clare first meets Henry when she is six years old and he suddenly appears, naked, in the Meadow near her home: he’s thirty-six at the time. On the other hand, Henry first meets Clare in the library where he works, when he’s twenty-eight and she’s twenty. Henry has a condition called Chrono-Displacement Disorder, which has him disappearing and reappearing into various times in the past and future. This is ultimately a beautiful love story with a time-travel twist, which adds a different dimension to the story: humour in some parts, horror or heartache in others. Whilst reading this book can be confusing at first, once you realise that Clare’s story moves forward normally in time, and you remember to pay attention to Henry’s age in the headings, it all starts to make sense.

Book Review: Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - Reviewed by (05 Jun 2011)

I enjoyed this novel for younger readers. In it, Kate Forsyth weaves traditional Scottish folklore with modern-day teenage angst to bring us a puzzle that has kept a curse on Hannah's family for four hundred years. Hannah must go on a quest to retrieve 4 parts of a puzzle ring in order to break the curse and rescue her father - the only twist is that it involves travel through time...

It was refreshing indeed to be presented with a 'realistic' view of the middle ages - the descriptions of missing teeth, putrid streets and long days of walking are quite different to other teenage novels of princes, castles, and jousts. A lot of fun, and I hope to read more of Hannah's adventures.

Book Review: Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - Reviewed by (05 Jun 2011)

Don't know what to get them? Stuck for ideas for the person who has everything? This is the book I buy for -those- people. It's a haunting tale and written in such an interesting way, skipping and meandering through time and yet leaving the story-thread intact (if not better for it). The characters are well-developed (albeit not chronologically!) and it is very difficult to put this book down. A classic love story, with many twists and turns that keep you guessing.

The movie does not do the book justice, but for fans it will not disappoint. Highly recommended.
