The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Excellent. A simple enough story, about a husband who randomly time travels and his wife, which takes you through their relationship and various events in their life and not once stoops to patronise or indulge itself. Once you get used to the format — every chapter starts with the date and age in which the two main characters appear — the story flows well and is suprisingly gripping and moving.

I’m pretty sure this was a recommendation, and it was only after I was halfway through it that I realised that it was, deservedly, on bestseller lists. At times the book leaps along, dragging you through time and dumping you slap bang in the middle of a situation, and other times it takes a soft approach and almost moves you to tears.

In turn I’ll recommend this, hugely original and well written, book. If you want something a little different for taking on your holidays, something that remains easy to read yet FEELS a lot smarter than it looks (if that makes any sense) then get yourself a copy.
