100 Novels Update: The Time Traveler’s Wife


I’ve updated my 100-novels list, adding Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife to it. I hope to have more posted about this novel in the future. I’m following up Time Traveler’s Wife with Virginia Woolf’s Orlando: A Biography; I feel there is a relationship between the two novels.

Here is a plot summary of Orlando from Wikipedia:

Orlando tells the story of a young man named Orlando, born in England during the reign of Elizabeth I, who decides not to grow old. He does not, and he passes through the ages as a young man … until he wakes up one morning to find that he has metamorphosed into a woman — the same person, with the same personality and intellect, but in a woman’s body. The remaining centuries up to the time the book was written are seen through a woman’s eyes.
