I'm a little late reading The Time Traveler's Wife and I think this affected my opinion, having heard such rave reviews about this book. I enjoyed it overall, but wasn't sure it lived up to all the fantastic things I had heard about it prior to reading it myself.
At first I found the time traveling distracting and slightly confusing, but once I settled into the book, it didn't get in the way of my reading. I thought this unique story was written beautifully and the character's richly portrayed. Clare and Henry remained in my mind long after I read the novel.
I did however find the book started to drag somewhat for me about a third of the way through. I think it was the anticipation of something happening and I definitely wanted to know what it was, but it seemed to take forever to find out and not enough seemed to happen in between to satisfy my patience.
Unfortunately I'm afraid The Time Traveler's Wife didn't quite live up to the hype for me. Overall, it was quite good, but I didn't think it was as fantastic as everyone had said it would be, nor did I bawl my eyes out at anytime which I heard might occur - and I am a romantic sentimentalist so it surprised me that I didn't!
