Audio Book Summary

This bestselling and innovative debut novel from Audrey Niffenegger explores the perfect marriage, one that is tested by challenges the couple can neither control nor predict. An imaginative extension of everyday life, the story asks: What if two people who loved each other deeply, married, and faced a life in which one person remained constant while the other slipped fluidly in and out of time?

A modern love story with a twist that invites us to linger over questions of how life and love change over time.

    I nodded my head in agreement. I laughed. I cried. Interesting concept for the story and very well written. Very clear narration easy to understand even for not so fluent listeners.

    I wish I could give this book two different reviews – one for structure, one for content. By structure I mean that the plot is fascinating and the actors are excellent – 5 stars! By content I mean the characters are insipid, self-absorbed, annoying, and their lack of development ultimately rendered the entire effort meaningless –1 star. Overall, I did enjoy the book. It kept my interest and made my commute more bearable for a couple of weeks. However, when it was over I ended up feeling let down by the author. Her plotting was so complex yet smooth that I kept hoping Claire and Henry would end up becoming something more, growing or changing somehow. But alas, they just slog along until their time runs out. So, I’m splitting the difference and saying 3 stars for the book.

    Thank goodness I listened to this book before I watched the movie. They are noting alike and if you've seen the movie, read the book because you were ripped off. So little of the story made it to the book.

    Nothing about this sounded like a book I would be interested in but a friend highly recommended it. I'm soooo glad I read it. This was a wonderful story and the audio version made it so easy to follow.

    I found this really, really hard to follow and just confusing in general. I didn't even finish it unfortunately.

    I'll say this for the audio version of The Time Traveler's Wife--the reading was excellent. Both actors were easy to understand and read the book in an engaging way. In fact, I would say that listening to the novel is superior to reading the book. The novel is supposed to jump back and forth between Claire and Henry's perspective, only the writing is so poor that, from dialogue alone, I would often forget who the subject was. On the audio version it's easy to keep track because a woman reads Claire's chapters while a man reads Henry's. I found the book itself dreadful--it's a mediocre chicklit-esque romance novel dressed up with time travel to try to be something more than it is. Both characters are utterly unlikable--snobbish, pseudo-intellectuals who act with complete disdain and disregard for everyone else in their lives. I have no idea why this book became so popular. But, if it's made your list of "Must Reads" I would argue for the audio version over the written any day.
