You've got to give this one a try if you're time travel fan - this is not your run of the mill sci-fi, and does not fit into the standard sci-fi time travel tropes. Namely, either someone goes back and affects the past, causing horrific consequences when they return to the present, OR they go back specifically to change the course of past events and find that they can't. This book nicely subverts both of these concepts.
Also unique is the method of time travel, which I won't spoil here. There are no flux capacitors to be found here. I was reminded of Synecdoche, New York, the fantastically dark introspective brain-child of Charlie Kaufman, in the scenes where the time travel method (still in its experimental stage) is being explained to the protagonist.
