Title:
The Time Traveler's Wife
Author:

Rating:
3 out of 5 stars

Man is accidental time traveller, catapulted back and forward. Wife isn’t. But they first meet when she is young and he is rather older and continue to meet throughout her chronologically normal life until they eventually get it together for real but then, of course, it ain’t quite that straightforward.

Nice proposiition, well-worked through and kind of hangs together despite the changes in time, ages and setting (which I gave up trying to track). A very easy and light read and pretty enjoyable really as a fun thriller. There is a love story between the protagonists at the heart of it which gives it its main thread but I’m too hard to comment on that.

So, top Richard and Judy fayre but no worse for that!

I’m too hard to comment on that

Dude. You’re reading books. And reviewing them. It’s too late for protestations of hardness; you’ve not so much ticked the “I’m not hard” box as drawn little pink hearts all over the whole questionnaire.

COMMENT:

No claims to street hardness intended but in the context of contemporary (as opposed to classical) romance, believe me, I’m well hard! I could take on that Richard Madeley any day.
