Additional Notes

From The Publisher*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.

"Thought-provoking and very moving. Plus there are several mentions of punk-rock bands such as the late, great Clash!" Huffington Post Books
"One doesn't normally associate science fiction with true love, but my favourite romance is Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife.... Heartbreaking.... It's an introspective and deeply moving tale of sacrifice--and, incidentally, a stunning example of the book being far better than the movie." The Globe and Mail
"Ms. Niffenegger not only conjured two memorable characters, but also created an affecting story about the magical ability of love to transcend time." The New York Times

"Highly original novel.... The Time Traveler's Wife has it all: an innovative plot, intriguing characters and compelling writing." Chatelaine

"Niffenegger's storytelling is bold and entrancing. Her prose is warm and inviting. And her characters are created with heartfelt sincerity. There's a lot to love in this book…. The Time Traveler's Wife is an engrossing read that keeps both emotions and intellect entertained." The Times-Colonist 

"The Time Traveler's Wife is a very old love story: wonky, sexy, incredible...but charmingly, inventively retold." The Times
