Time Travel Equals A Hard Life

Okay I liked it! Basically it is the tale of a man who spontaneously time travels back and forth throughout his life. He has no control over this and when he does time travel he ends up standing naked in some unknown time period, not exactly a convenient method of time travel if I had to pick one.

At the beginning I have to admit I found it a bit confusing. It follows Clares life most of the time but the thing thats confusing is Henry could come back to Clare when she is six and he will be 43 and then come to her when she is 16 and he could be 36 so he hasn't experienced the time when she was six if you get me? It's confusing to say the least. However as the book draws on somehow you begin to find it easier to remember when's when and who's what!

Clare and Henry are great characters, neither are perfect but they have an unbreakable bond through love. The only flaw with this book was one of the last scenes involving Clare and Gomez. Nonsensical, cruel and out of character for both people I didn't get it. The rest was good!
