Review: The time traveler's wife is Audrey Niffenegger's debut novel and a national bestseller. Very romantic, heart breaking and incredible. But sadly this novel was unable to hit my favorites list. Reason: Audrey Niffenegger's itch to add as much adult content as possible. The scene in the ending with Gomez was unnecessary and didn't make any sense. One was supposed to feel sympathetic towards Claire, for loosing her husband. But how is it possible when Audrey made her - kinda- cheat on Henry. I just didn't feel sorry for her, at that moment I just felt like throwing the book away. Also, the time traveling thing is a bit confusing. And the story seems slow at times. Wonder how this book has spent weeks on the bestseller list. I won't recommend this book to those who pin point every single teenie minie mo detail in a book - I don't think they'll like it.

Note: The 18+ rating is not official. But personally on general bases, I think the content is not suitable for a under 18.
