  1. 225
    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 really despised the characters and the premise was poorly executed. Time traveling in the nude to meet your future wife when she is six is just not a great plot premise. Some of the twists and turns are hard to follow. Henry is a shallow sociopath. Some of the dialogue seems stilted. The writing wasn't bad overall, but the author name- dropped in all to obvious attempt to be both cool and cultured.
I was tempted to abandon the book but I kept hoping that it would get better. I doesn't. I would not recommend it to anyone. I gave it two stars because I found some events in the latter part of the book fairly interesting. ( )

I read this for the "A Book About Time Travel" part of my 2019 reading challenge. I enjoyed it, but sometimes it was hard to follow the timelines and Henry could be a bit annoying. ( )

This book is terrible. I can't believe there is so much hype about it. Once I started, I was determined to finish, however. Sadly, as the book goes on, it only gets more ridiculous. The only good thing I can say about this book is that I'm finally finished reading it. ( )

Strange and sad story of man who time travels uncontrollably .
  bentstoker | Jan 26, 2024 |
I sort of swear off contemporary books (less than 20 years old) as a child. Many were autobiographical fiction and had little structure, assuming their own factual importance. I read this because I did not have any time to find a book for my 3 month trip to Europe and my mom had this lying around. However, since I was trying to find broaden my literary genres and venture into romance, this science fiction blend seemed like a proper compromise.
I loved it. There certainly are a few minor structural problems due to the time changes, but it altogether brilliant and original. Too bad more people do not appreciate it. ( )

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
