The Time Traveler's Wife

It's book recommendation time! I just finished reading this book: The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. This may be one of my favorite books of all time...its a combination of all the things I like in a story - someting supernatural - in this case, time travel. Henry DeTamble time travels to his past and future without meaning or desiring to. It's also one of the best love stories I've ever read, Clare and Henry are so well drawn, and their love is so normal and obvious that that's what makes it powerful. It's also very funny in places - poor Henry can't control when he time travels, but it tends to happen when he gets stressed, so there's some very funny worrying about time travel - like when poor Henry is hoping he won't disappear right before Clare's family's eyes at Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve or at their wedding. This is one of those books that you were sorry to finish it was so good. Enjoy!
