I would recommend this book and give it a 7/10 rating
I'll need to read it again before discussing it. I definitely can't wait to see the movie!
Even then he crashes back and forth age-wise at the whim of Niffenegger to explore another concept which took her fancy at the time of writing. For example, she added commonplace plot devices whenever the storyline lulled, like a friend's suicide, pregnancy troubles, father issues, love triangle. Or making naked Henry land in yet another sticky situation. To top it all off, she holds the characters at arms length and there is no warmth or likeability to them.
Maybe I'm too sceptical but I believe there are a lot better off-the-wall concept books out there.
My main complaints are with regard to the overly long digressions involving wine & cuisine, art, pregnancy issues ect. They smacked of filler rather than necessary information which was in any way pertinent to the story. A little of this would be OK but Niffenegger often dragged these things out to the point where I wanted to say, "Enough already! Get on with the story." This having been said, I would (and have) still recommend the book. It was, overall, a good story and a very original take on the time travel theme.
