An enchanting debut and a spellbinding tale of fate and belief in the bonds of love, The Time Traveler's Wife is destined to captivate readers for years to come.
The depth of the characters that Niffenegger was able to create was amazing. I loved learning all of the details of Henry and Clare and their life together. Their story and their love through time is so touching and I loved every bit of that. From the beginning to end, back and forth, through time was compeletely magical. Niffenegger really wrote a brillant story. I can see why there was so much praise and admiration for this book. It deserves all of it.
I didn't give this book a 5 for a couple of reasons. Some parts of it were slow and I thought were unneccesary in telling the true story of the book. I could have fast forwarded some parts. Even though I loved it all, the book was really just too long for me. I would have been happier with a shorter book. I really liked learning about all the little things and details that weren't in the movie. For some reason, I think the movie got the story better though. I was hoping for an amazing heart wrenching ending, like in the movie, and I didn't get that in the book.
I actually listened to the story on audiobook and the readers of the book were absolutely brillant. They were both perfect as Clare and Henry, I could picture it so clearly in my head. The audiobook did a fantastic job at telling the story. Overall, I really loved this book and it is totally worth reading if you saw the movie and think you want to read it, even with the flaws that I thought it had. I recommend this adult book for everyone, it is a fantastic read and has become one of my favorite movies/books this year that I have saw/read. =]
|Spectacular, adventurous and magical is what sums up this awesome book. I am so happy that I got the chance to read this book before it comes out in April. Hippocampus really takes you on an adventure that you don't want to leave once the book ends. As you read you learn about Trey Atlas and what happens to him thoughout his journey. You get to learn all about the lost city of Atlantis and all the wonders it has to hold. The one negative about this book was|
