WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE CHARACTERS?
Clare Abshire is fiery, clever and unstoppable and for most of her life she’s had an amazing secret. Since she was six years old, Clare had an imaginary friend who was kind and funny, and sometimes young, other times old. The man would appear in the woods behind her house and tells her tales about the future. She grew very fond of him.
On the other hand, Henry DeTamble has been a time traveler since he was eight years old. It’s not a superpower for him, it’s a condition that he can’t change or esacpe. As years pass, Clare realises that her friend is very much real and that he’s a time traveler visiting her from the future. And he’s not just from any old future, but her future.
Then she goes on a date with a young man named Henry DeTamble whom she knows closely, but he doesn’t recognize her at all. In a heart-touching turn of events, she then becomes the time traveler’s wife.
The Time Traveler’s Wife has been adapted into a movie earlier in 2009. It starred Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams in lead roles.
