Damn. How could a book that starts with so much promise end with such a letdown.
I picked up The Time Traveler’s Wife to read on the plane on the way to Miami and didn’t know too much about it other than it is about a guy who inexplicably travels in time throughout different periods in his life. Most of the book has a non-linear narration with the main character bouncing around through the years meeting people from his life including his younger (and sometimes older) self. The author, Audrey Niffenegger does a stellar job at being able to tell such a story without it unravelling. The problem I had with the book is it just seemed to go on a bit too long. About three-quarters of the way through she all but abandoned the non-linear storyline and it becomes almost a pure romance novel. Ewwwwwwwwwww.
Next on the reading list is Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. And what are you reading?
