Welcome to A to Z! This year, I'm highlighting women's fiction books (and probably instilling a decent amount of cover love in the process).
T is for The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
Synopsis from Goodreads: A dazzling novel in the most untraditional fashion, this is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger's cinematic storytelling that makes the novel's unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant.
This is another one of those books that I think most people have heard of, maybe you even saw the movie. I watched the movie first and then read the book, and as is generally the case, I loved the book beyond what I thought I could because I really liked the movie too. This book lets the reader see so much more about Henry and Clare, which made me really love them even more. I cried in this book, several times, because of both the story and the writing. I love Henry and Clare individually, and I love them both for loving each other. It is not as squeaky clean as the movie depicted, but so worth the read.
What book did you read after seeing the movie? Who are some of your favorite literary couples - why?
