Summary ¼ The Time Traveler's Wife 106 A funny often poignant tale of boy meets girl with a twist what if one of them couldn't stop slipping in and out of time Highly original and imaginative this debut novel raises uestions about life love and the effects of time on relationshipsAudrey Niffenegger’s innovative debut The Time Traveler’s Wife is the story of Clare a beautiful art student and Henry an adventuresome librarian who have known each other since Clare was six. I recently read The Time Traveler s Wife and was pretty disappointed the author somehow manages to turn such an awesome premise the dude actually time travels into something pretty flat and dull The first hundred pages really hooked me but after a while I started to get irritated by1 All the name checking of hipster approved bands in an attempt to establish Henry s supposed punk cred He liked the Violent Femmes in 1991 That s why he s so badass Seriously2 The food porny descriptions of the meals they eat Some paragraphs read like the menu of a pretentious bistro3 The awful ethnic stereotypes that characterize the few non white characters Nell the mammy esue family cook complete with dialect or Charisse the childlike Filipina4 The fact that everyone is successful and at least upper middle class if not fabulously wealthy Even Henry somehow manages to keep his job at the Newberry library for 20 years despite his habits of disappearing for odd stretches of time not keeping appointments and oh running around naked in the stacks from time to time It would have been interesting to me if his disorder kept him from having any normal kind of professional life5 The lack of character development in the protagonists after they finally meet as adults All of a sudden they meet and they re in love The author gives lip service to Henry s womanizing and drug problems but really they don t seem to pose much than a passing problem for Clare because she already knows they ll get married And even as a married couple their biggest source of conflict whether they can or should have a child is extrinsic rather than intrinsic to their personalitiescharacters Clare never really seems to be bothered by her lack of independence or the fact that she s so tethered to Henry because he had a part in making her who she is etcBy the time I actually got to the end of the story I was too emotionally distanced from the characters to really be moved by what happens to them the burden of plot winds up outsripping any kind of nuanced characterization Bad science fiction and bad romance Bah humbug
