good book

Mom lent me a good book while we were in Texas over Christmas: The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.

I’m a big fan of sci-fi and like time travel stories. This one is different.

THe narative structure is part of what makes it so fascinating—mom said she finished it and then went back to the beginning and read it again. Two intercut first person narratives. Jumps back and forth in time, a bit disorienting. Fortunately each section starts with a date and the current ages of the protagonists.

I don’t want to say too much, but I liked the characters, found their dilemma to be novel and compelling. Good characterization. I cared about these people and was anxious to find out what happened next. One of those books I had a hard time putting down.
