The Time Traveler’s Wife

Filed under: General — 9:14 pm

I recently finished The Time Traveler’s Wife, and while it was a good book, I didn’t really like the way the author (Audrey Niffenegger) did the time travel bits.

I don’t want to spoil anything, but I don’t like the idea that you can’t change things in your past or future. I’m much more on board with the Star Trek way(s) of doing things, and how in any of those ways interacting with and changing the past/future can happen.

Though I did like her use of alternating first-person perspectives that are also at times unreliable narrators.
