Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife, says she wrote the book as a metaphor designed to reflect all of her failed, past relationships. Plagued with frustration at not being able to find her soul mate in real life, she figured she might as well create him, by putting him into words.
The result? A perfect yet tragic story of love, patience, true romance, time and existence.
I loved this book and am actually looking forward to watching Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams play out the story on the big screen in August.
