Overview


Audrey Niffenegger's romantic novel The Time Traveler's Wife tells the tender story of Henry and Clare, a married couple, whose relationship is as unique as is every love affair. Niffenegger takes the concept of time out of the linear sequence that we are familiar with, and turns it inside out and upside down. Bookclub-in-a-Box explores both inside and outside the boundaries of Niffenegger's concepts of love, relationships and time. The exploration looks at how the author's narrative structure and her symbols highlight the circular nature of time and interconnected lives. The discussion guide will also look at why this novel is often categorized as science fiction. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author.
