The Time Traveler’s Wife – Recap

And that was May. May’s book, The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger, is the second (but not the last) book from 2003 we’re reading this year as part of a chronological exploration of the best science fiction novels written by women in the previous decade which we are reading here at Torque Control over the course of 2011.

I looked at three of the book’s major elements: its wonderful inhabitation of the landscape of the greater Chicago area; the way in which the central couple strive for as much of a “normal” life as they are able to; and the book’s uneasy, if necessary, dabbling in the degree to which free will exists.

Thank you to all who joined in reading or re-reading this book.

Discussion: Part 1 (Chicago), Part 2 (Normality), and Part 3 (The Decline of Free Will).
