The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

The Time Travelers Wife written by Audrey Niffenegge is an unconventional story about two people, Clare Abshire and Henry DeTamble. Niffenegge tries to show her readers that love is perpetual by giving Henry Chronic Displacemnet Disorder (CDD). Henry frequently finds himself in different time periods. This is how Clare Abshire met Henry when she was 6. Clare and Henry have always known eachother and will know eachother. Although this situation may sound ideal Clare and Henry often find themselves in difficult situations. Whereas Henry is the one put in real danger, constantly being beaten up and arrested as a result of his CDD, Clare has is left at home worrying about him. I would reccomend this riveting novel for anyone intereseted in a casual and quick read.
