The Book review: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffeneger.

The Time Traveler’s Wife is a story of life, love, and effects of time on relationships. Henry is a librarian. He has a rare genetic disorder known as chrono-impairment. It causes him to travel through time. Henry travels to the past and future in relation to his own timeline. When, where and for how long he will stay in that time is beyond his control.

At a book launch event in his library, he met Clare. He does not know her but she knows him since her childhood. In his time travels, Henry has met her since she was five and has visited her many times. On one of his visits, Henry gave Claire the list of dates when he would visit her. On Claire’s eighteenth birthday, they make love for the first time and don’t met for next two years.

They eventually marry. Henry and Claire love each other very much but it is very difficult for them to carry a normal life. Henry keeps travelling through time and Claire is being visited by Henry from different time periods.

From the Book:

CLARE: It’s hard being left behind. I wait for Henry, not knowing where he is, wondering if he’s okay. It’s hard to be the one who stays.
I keep myself busy. Time goes faster that way. I go to sleep alone, and wake up alone. I take walks. I work until I’m tired. I watch the wind play with the trash that’s been under the snow all winter. Everything seems simple until you think about it. Why is love intensified by absence?

Long ago, men went to sea, and women waited for them, standing on the edge of the water, scanning the horizon for the tiny ship. Now I wait for Henry. He vanishes unwillingly, without warning. I wait for him. Each moment that I wait feels like a year, an eternity. Each moment is as slow and transparent as glass. Through each moment I can see infinite moments lined up, waiting. Why has he gone where I cannot follow?

The Time Traveler’s Wife portrays Henry and Clare’s marriage being affected by time traveling.
