Fiction • 12 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Although the title suggests that this is science fiction, Niffenegger’s charming, emotionally charged novel is much more a love story. Told alternately from the viewpoints of time traveler Henry and his wife, Clare, it’s highly enjoyable on audio. Readers Christopher Burns and Maggi-Meg Reed blend their respective chapters seamlessly. Each reader characterizes all roles within a chapter, and the depictions mesh beautifully. Both narrators characterize Korean friend Kimmy in a charmingly amusing voice and lend a light mood to the couple’s daughter, Alba. Burns portrays the emotional chaos of Henry’s life so genuinely as to cast the listener directly into his pain and joy. The abridged recording leaves one longing for more.
