  1. I know I'm very behind the times with this one but I've just finished The Time Traveller's Wife. I'm annoyed as I'd be absolutely gripped all the way through and couldn't wait to read it but then a few things took over and I've read the last chapter this evening weeks after reading the rest. However, my main question remains and I'm really hoping someone can help! I thought I'd sussed the ending, but one thing I really don't understand.... In my interpretation, Henry time travels back from the New Year's Eve scene in 2007 where he is in Clare's arms, to 1984, where he is accidentally shot by Clare's father and brother and then time travels back to 2007 where he dies in Clare's arms... I'm sure I have this right from reading other forums. What I don't understand is that in the 1984 scene he says he is running when he is shot... but the 2007 Henry that I thought this was had no feet so how was this possible? Please help - I was so proud of myself that despite the mindbending potential I'd managed not to lose my head completely at any other point in the book! Nikki
