I did hit a bit of a snag with my reading goal. Not a bad snag, but a snag none the less. I have been “working on” Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife. Needless to say I’m not finished with it. I do want to finish it so I’ll have to wait on the first book of my goal. So, for this post, I’ll talk about Time Traveler.
I’m going to be honest. This book makes me somewhat uncomfortable. It is a very interesting story and is uniquely set up with first person narration coming from two different characters.
Spoiler Alert! Don’t read any more if you haven’t read the book.
I’m only about 80 pages into the story. It is a love story between the time traveler (Henry) and Clare. The idea is that (Henry) actually met his wife, Clare, when she was a little girl. Now, I wouldn’t really automatically assume that it is a sexual relationship, but the Henry character keeps making allusions to that effect. It’s starting to creep me out just a little bit. I’m also beginning to sense that something a little more serious is going to happen between the two. Don’t spoil it if you’ve read the book.
The idea of the time traveler is a unique concept and I’m enjoying the book, despite the creepiness.
