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'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.

    I was disappointed in this book. It was boring and really had no point to the story other than the time travel that just seemed random jumping in and out of his own life. He never tried to fix or do anything other than be a downer.

    What a disappointment. Instead of something fantastic like its title and the book's recent popularity implies, The Time Traveler's Wife is nothing more than a glorified Harlequin romance. The plot twist of a genetically doomed time traveling husband is initially interesting, but the plot is monotonous and the characters are painfully shallow. The story drags on forever and is a total waste of time.

    Very profound plot and the narration was warm and personal. I truly miss the characters, kinda like losing your best friend. I hope to find another novel to compare just so I can live another day. Maybe there's a little hyperbole there but I really liked this story. please read this book, I promise you will love it.

    The narrator is terrific and I am sure the story would be enjoyed by many, but it isn’t my ‘cup of tea’.
