The Time Traveler's Wife

Wow. What a book. I'm a big fan of most time travel books, but this one is special.
Rarely does a science fiction book have such heart. I'll probably give too much away if I talk about it, and besides that would be like revealing the future to you.

If you like a good story, a good love story or if you loved Passage by Connie Willis or the episode of Deep Space 9 in which Sisco travels through time and his son Jake tries to bring his father back to the present, you will love this book.

It is by Audrey Niffenegger.

If you want to check it out on Amazon here is the link.

Other books it reminds me of: Crossing to Safety by Stegner and The Corrections. Maybe I'm reminded of those books because I don't read great lit that often, but the well drawn characters and funny/tragic scenes are what make it stand out.

I loved The Time Traveler's Wife too. Just finished it today. Will probably blog on it later in the week.
