The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

A wonderful romance between a slightly unusual couple... he suffers from a genetic condition that causes him to unexpectedly slip though time into different stages of his life. He never knows whether he's going forwards or back, and he develops a complex set of skills to enable his survival through this sometimes bloody, always shocking, series of transitions. His wife meets him while she is still a young girl, and as she says, spends her whole life "waiting" for him. At first a little difficult to keep track of where and when the two are juxtaposed, the story itself is a wonderful read and the relationship between the two protagonists is one of the best romance novels I've read in ages. I loved this book - the twists and turns kept me turning the pages even when the plot became a little strained. In the end, Niffenegger carries it off - a complex and respectable feat for a first novel.
