Time Keeper
Time Keeper | Mitch Albom
From the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" comes his most imaginative novel yet, "The Time Keeper"--a compelling fable about the first man on Earth to count the hours. The man who became Father Time. In Mitch Albom's exceptional work of fiction, the inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time. He returns to our world--now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently began--and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever. To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so. Told in Albom's signature spare, evocative prose, this remarkably original tale will inspire readers everywhere to reconsider their own notions of time, how they spend it, and how precious it truly is.

I really wanted to like it. I have enjoyed a lot of his other works, but I couldn‘t. This one wasn‘t it. The characters seemed more woe is me and selfish. In the end, it doesn‘t seem like the learned the value of time or any moral just like a rushed ending. I finished it because I committed to it, but not going to recommend. Maybe others could relate better than I.

I'm actually undecided.
I liked the premis, and the way in which he wrote the story.
There's some really memorable sentences in here.
However, it didn't gel with me... but I don't know why...

I'd gone to the library to find Tuesdays with Morrie. There wasn't a copy but this was available.

Ive read everything by Albom so I dont know how this one slipped by me. Its probably not my fav of his but he still didnt disappoint. Also, as usual, it carried a powerful message.

This book has been on my kindle for many years with me putting it to the side but something drew me to start it yesterday and it hit home so much. I regret putting this off for so long. It was such a wonderful read with so many great quotes. Sometimes it feels like the perfect book can fall into your hands at just the right time ❤️❤️

I picked this book up off the shelf when I forgot my book at home. I ended up really enjoying it. It was a very quick read. I have never read anything by Albom, so I can't compare it to his other works but I enjoyed it a lot.

This is my first finished book for 2019 and it was a great way to start the year. It was a good reminder of how precious time is and how we should enjoy every moment of this wonderful life we‘ve been given. A well-written and thought-provoking read. 4/5⭐️

megnews I just love Mitch Albom! The only thing I haven‘t read by him is The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto. Just read The Next Person You Meet in Heaven last month. Have you read For One More Day yet? So good but a tear jerker. 4y
PurpleyPumpkin @megnews This was my first Albom book, if you can believe it! It definitely won‘t be my last. Thanks for the recommendations. 👍🏽😉 4y
UwannaPublishme Great review! I really enjoyed this one too. You must read Tuesdays with Morrie. That‘s the one that first won my heart. Craig bought me Mitch‘s new book for Christmas, so that‘s next on the list. 4y

1. The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom is a fictional tale that works to teach readers to cherish the time they have without counting every minute, to be less governed by the clock and to be content with the time we are allotted here in earth.

Finished my May #poutineandpaperbacks pick. Will mail to @drokka tomorrow. Started another from my #classroomlibrary #bookhaul called Emily the Strange: Stranger & Stranger. I read enough to know that some students will like it and decide upon a read aloud passage. Good but I have too many other greats in my #TBR. I'm over halfway through the tagged. Won't make 13 hour but I'll enjoy trying. #13inthree

Post 3 of 3: So once I finish with my current #poutineandpaperbacks which should be sent out by Monday and Everything Beautiful is Not Ruined for my other book club I'll begin tackling this stack, top to bottom. Between my two #TBR lists I have way more books than I have time to read. It's really a bittersweet problem. There will be other book club picks and professional reads added along the way. So far 2018 has been a stellar year for reading!

I became mindful of time because of this book. That whenever I want the time to pass by really fast, there's someone that wishes for it to tick away slowly.

Just shows that time is gold. ⌚

Not his best book, but a good one nonetheless. Reminded me to live and enjoy the moment instead of constantly chasing time.

Easy read and a good break from the heavier books.

JessBerk What did you think was his best book? 5y
Cindyelizavaz @JessBerk definitely Magic Strings of Frankie Presto followed by Have A Little Faith. 5y

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can't.
Yet all around you timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog doesn't check it's watch.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out."

Time is not something you give back. The very next moment may be an answer to your prayer. To deny that is to deny the most important part of the future.
What's that?
Hope. ?" ?????/5

Mitch Albom is justt brilliant, he never fails to make me fall in love with his words??.
I loved The Time keeper so much, it made think of what things may turn out to be??.
Live it simple beautiful people, and never lose hope??.
