But don't you think...that it's better to be extremely happy for a short while, even if you lose it, than to be just okay for your whole life?
A truly original and moving story, The Time Traveler's Wife is a tale about love, life, and loss; the story of Henry and Clare, and their unconventional passionate relationship. His life, one of inconsistency, change and regret. Her's the harbor he anchors himself in, the tether to normal. I felt a myriad of emotions while reading this book. It gripped me, sucked me in, and held me fast to the end, until I was released not lost, but found again.
Isn't that what a good story does? It tastes your skin, chews you up and if done well, spits you out again whole, with a new perspective.
An excellent read.
