The story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, a librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty, 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 misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity in his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.… (més)

    Never Let Me Go de Kazuo Ishiguro (MissPip)
    MissPip: Serious, contemporary literature of first rate caliber. Wearing a interesting mantle of science fiction, this alternative history of Britain relies on heart-breakingly real emotion and impeccable writing, rather than scientific cleverness, to entertain, endear, and allow us to empathize with these all-too-human characters.… (més)

I picked this up from the library after hearing a number of good reviews about it. I don't normally read romance books but the premise sounded intriguing.

Unfortunately it didn't hold my interest for long. I didn't find the protagonists particularly likeable and there was too much padding and conversation that went nowhere. I skim-read a lot of it. I would have abandoned the book but I carried on reading, waiting for something interesting to happen. I think I was around 440 or so pages into it when I felt it was warming up. At the end I was left feeling disappointed: it was a good idea and I felt so much more could have been made of it. ( )

Amikor először találkoztak, Clare hatéves volt és Henry harminc. Amikor összeházasodtak, Clare huszonkettő és Henry még mindig harminc. Henry idő-eltolódási rendellenességgel született. Genetikai órája a legváratlanabb pillanatokban visszaáll, és még abban a másodpercben eltűnik. Ilyenkor elmúlt és eljövendő élete érzelmi csomópontjain találja magát, meztelenül, védtelenül. Sohasem tudja, mikor történik meg újra, sohasem tudja, hol köt ki legközelebb. Az időutazó felesége a világirodalom egyik legkülönösebb szerelmi története. Clare és Henry felváltva meséli el történetüket. Rajongva szeretik egymást, megpróbálnak normális családi életet élni: biztos állás, barátok, gyerekek. Mindezt olyasmi fenyegeti, amit sem megakadályozni, sem irányítani nem képesek, történetük ettől olyan megrendítő és felejthetetlen.

This is a wonderful story, richly told and spilling over with happiness and sorrow, much like life. It makes me want to be a better writer. ( )

This book definitely posed a lot of thoughtful scenarios. Time travel/loop stories often do! And it was interesting to follow the main characters throughout their lives. But I never became as attached to the characters as I wanted to be. I wished them well, and a few scenes brought a tear to my eye, but it never compared to the book characters I carry with me in my heart. It was sadder and with more struggling than I had expected. That said, I don't think I'll forget this book anytime soon and it was well written. ( )
  JorgeousJotts | Dec 3, 2021 |
Though I don't try to restrict my reading to a specific genre, I don't really feel like reading Romance. A friend, not so close then as to know my reading preferences, gifted me this book and I had to read it, for friendship's sake. Overall, I liked it, for its fantasy plot based on time travel, and the uneven narration that held my attention. The romance part was okay initially but became too much as I progressed. There is an awful lot of references to arts, artists, music, musicians and the society that meant nothing to me, I was there only for the story... I would have loved it had the author focussed more on the actual story than the superfluous social and art commentary. ( )

The triumph of the book is the triumph of normality, of setting up a decent family life even if you are constantly dissappearing from it, of being loyal to somebody with what Niffenegger finally explains as a genetic dysfunction - chrono-displacement, as she calls it.
afegit per mikeg2 | editaThe guardian, Natasha Walter (Jan 31, 2004)
 
"The Time Traveler's Wife" can be an exasperating read, but as a love story it has its appeal: Refreshingly, the novel portrays long-term commitment as something lively and exuberant rather than dutiful and staid, evoking both the comforts it brings us and the tribulations we learn to live with.
 
Niffenegger, despite her moving, razor-edged prose, doesn't claim to be a romantic. She writes with the unflinching yet detached clarity of a war correspondent standing at the sidelines of an unfolding battle. She possesses a historian's eye for contextual detail. This is no romantic idyll.
afegit per Shortride | editaUSA Today, Kathy Balog (Sep 24, 2003)
 
About halfway through Audrey Niffenegger's debut novel, The Time Traveler's Wife, you realize you're going to be devastated. You love the characters, you're deeply involved in their lives, you can sense tragedy coming and you know it's going to hurt. But there's no way you can stop reading... Niffenegger structures the novel clearly enough that the timelines never get tangled, and her writing is so strong you'd keep going even if you did get confused.

Clock time is our bank manager,
tax collector, police inspector;
this inner time is our wife.

— J. B. PRIESTLEY,
Man and Time
Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

—DEREK WALCOTT
Oh not because happiness exists,
that too-hasty profit snatched from approaching loss.
But because truly being here is so much; because everything here apparently needs us, this fleeting world, in which some strange way keeps calling us. Us, the most fleeting of all.
. . . Ah, but what can we take along
into that other real? Not the art of looking,
which is learned so slowly, and nothing that happened here. Nothing.
The sufferings, then. And, above all, the heaviness,
and the long experience of love,—just what is wholly
unsayable.

—from The Ninth Duino Elegy, RAINER MARIA RILKE,
translated by STEPHEN MITCHELL
