The “Time Traveler’s Wife” tells the story of Henry DeTamble and his wife Clare Abshire. When the couple meets, Henry is 28 and Clare is 20. Henry has a rare genetic disorder called Chrono-Displacement that causes him to spontaneously time travel. He has no control over when he leaves, where he travels to, or the duration of his time-traveling “episode.”

What made me fall in love with this book is it’s optimistic take on love. It’s message is that true love knows no boundaries and transcends time and death. Although this book would be considered an unconventional love story that could also be categorized as science fiction, it is the best love story I have ever read. Another aspect of the book that is truly fantastic is how the author not only shows us Henry as a lover and husband, but as a son, father, friend, and person. I feel like I know the guy! I can’t say enough good things about this book.

Time Traveler’s Wife (starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams) is slated to be released as a major motion picture on Christmas Day, 2008.
