The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger


By coincidence, this is compared on the cover to 'The Lovely Bones', the previous book I read - well, I am catching up on overhyped bestsellers at the moment. This also covers the subject of absence, but lacks the emotional weight of Sebold's story. A load of smug middle-class Americans agonise over the practical and philosophical difficulties of losing one's grip on time. It's probably a metaphor for something but it's hard to care enough to work that one out. Disappointing and average.
