The Time Traveler's Wife
by Audrey Niffenegger
What's on my bookshelf?
“Don't you think 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?”
Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler's Wife
I like this book because of the way it plays with time. When I first started reading it, I was confused because I expected it to be chronological, or at least a frame story. But once I accepted that the characters and chapters jump around in time, the story unfolded at an increasingly intriguing pace.
The basic plot centers on two people who meet at different times and stages of their lives. Henry is a time-traveler, and Clare first meets him when she is six. As their meetings progress, so does their relationship, although it is hampered by forces out of their control.
Of course, I can't read a book if the characters aren't well-drawn, and this book definitely had characters that kept me involved. By the end, I cared for them so much that I didn't want the book to end.

Note: Don't watch the movie. It's terrible.
