THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER IS NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE
This extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare and Henry who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty.
Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. His disappearances are spontaneous and his experiences are alternately harrowing and amusing.
The Time Traveler's Wife depicts the effects of time travel on Henry and Clare's passionate love for each other with grace and humour. Their struggle to lead normal lives in the face of a force they can neither prevent nor control is intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

Comments about The Time Traveler's Wife:
This book captures you completely. The story changed the way I think permanently. It was terribly sad to finish the book as the characters became a part of my life for the duration of the pages. An absolutely amazingly well written book!
"At its core The Time Traveler's Wife is an old-fashioned love story. A terrific book - startlingly original construction" Observer "I was ridiculously entranced by Audrey Niffenegger's big, reckless novel...utterly convincing" Daily Telegraph "Niffenegger exploits the possibilities of her fantasy scenario with immense skill: no wonder this novel has spent weeks on the bestseller lists in the US. This is one of those books that makes you want to eat it up from start to finish" Guardian "Wonky, sexy, incredible" The Times "Pick up Niffenegger's book and you'll experience a visceral thrill that only a few novels provide. An elegy to love and loss" Independent on Sunday
