Maybe I don’t get it…but the movie “The Time Traveler’s Wife” seems like a story of a guy who comes and goes while the wife sits around waiting on a guy she committed herself to. It sounds like another name for “The Mistress Life.” He has a “gene” to make him leave whenever her period starts, mood swings happen, or when she needs him the most. This “gene” makes it okay for him to not really be there. This story is nothing different from “The Baby Daddy Story.” I understand enjoying the good times but…um, yeah.
Did a guy write the book? No, it is Audrey Niffenfegger, a Gemini. So I guess her male twin was dominating. Great way to get a male director to love it.
There won’t be a Time Traveler’s Husband, I bet. He would have said bump that a long time ago.
“Audrey Niffenfegger’s innovative debut, The Time Traveler’s Wife, is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, who have know each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he fins himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.
The Time Traveler’s Wife depicts the effects of time travel on Henry and Clare’s marriage and their passionate love or each other, as the story unfolds from both points of view. Clare and Henry attempt to live normal lives, pursuing familiar goals-steady jobs, good friends, children of their own. All of this is threatened by something they can neither prevent nor control, making their story intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.”
