The Time Traveler's Wife - By Audrey Niffenegger

Wow. Just finished this book. Our book of the month for September. It was pretty good. There were very exciting parts and parts that got a little slow. I liked how the time traveling made everything connect. You would read one part of the book that didn't make sense and then watch for it to make sense later as they got farther along in time. I felt bad for Clare. Waiting. Worried. Henry knew so much more than she did about their life, but at the same time so did she.

Parts were confusing. Time travel books/movies always are I suppose.

I could also have done without all the strange sex scenes. They always seemed to be kind of forced and weird. Almost made you feel dirty for reading them. I guess they were realistic, but it was just weird.

I liked the book best when she was a little girl or after they had their little girl Alba. Happy to have read it but probably wouldn't pick it up again.

This is a HUGE book for someone's first novel. Kudos to Audrey N. for taking something like this on for her first book.

I also liked it best when Clare was a little girl. Later, I got bored and hated all the weird sex. Maybe I will read it again one day and give it another try with a positive attitude. I didn't have a good one going into the book so I guess that didn't help matters. There is a movie coming out with Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, and I will probably see since I read the book. Maybe the movie will make things better.

Took forever to comment on this one, but I forgot about it.
