The idea of someone who travels between past and present is interesting, if not totally original and I give the author credit for tackling this kind of story. The problem I have, however, is that many of the scenes are uncomfortable and unnatural.

Niffenegger clearly spent a lot of time coordinating the dates of Henry’s appearances and she plants the hints of the story’s end in appropriate places. But the jumping around is too frequent and awkward. To help the reader, Niffenegger supplies an unending supply of references of Chicago, music, stock market activity, pop culture, etc. I get the feeling she Googled every decade from 1960 to present and crammed in all the results.

Not my favorite – this story is a fast, casual read.

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
