Book review: The Time-Traveler's Wife

I haven’t read a book so engrossing in a while. It’s a story of a guy with a genetic flaw that makes him time travel spontaneously and the woman who loves him. The overall theme throughout the book is waiting, and I couldn’t wait to read more of this book. At around 500 pages, it lasted me a while, but I plowed through it in about 4 days.
It tackles some brain-teasers surrounding time travel, circular thoughts that are hard to wrap your head around: the guy visits his wife as a young girl, and tells her which dates he would be coming next, which she writes down, then gives him when she meets him in real time so he can tell her younger version when he would be coming next, which she writes down so she can give him when she meets him in real time….etc. etc. Where is the beginning? who knows…
It isn’t a happy romance, though. Be forewarned because it may seem that way, but it’s not. After I finished, my insides were conflicted and my heart ached with how the book ended, and I’m still thinking about it.
Go read it. There’s even some smut in it for those of you who like a little porn with your literature.
