In Niffenegger's novel, a young man named Henry has the ability to time travel involuntarily. His trips into the past as well as the future happens spontaneously, but most of the time, they lead him to his wife. Through these trips, Henry learns more about his love for Clare since she was a young child until her old age.
This book has a complex story line. It may be difficult to understand at first but as you keep reading, it starts making sense. It's a love story but it's not the typical one that one would see on the shelves. I liked the book because of the originality but I was also captivated by Clare. I thought that Clare's unconditional love for Henry despite his sudden absences was the sweetest thing.
This is romantic story of two people so this definitely will appeal more to readers who like love stories. However, it's also a sci-fi novel, so that's an added bonus. Initially, I started reading it because of the "time traveling" description of the book but I was pleasantly surprised with the romantic plotline.
