My favorite book from Mitch Albom. It really makes you think about what you are doing with the time you have left in your life. I read it twice and if I ever found it in a book store I would buy it in a heart beat.

What a great story! I'm going to have to buy a copy of it! Best adult fiction work I've read in a while.

Now I have loved Mitch Albom since high school. His books are so moving and emotional. But this one didn't quite make it. The idea was a neat one and message from the story is clear. It just didn't reach me like his other books do.

Another brilliant work from Mitch Albom. Once again I paused to ask "Is my life counting for something?"

It was good but I found myself wanting to rush to the end and not concerned with savoring the book like I usually do with his books.

This book is really amazing, just like Mitch's other books. If you've already read this one make sure to check out the others! They're all fabulous and very meaningful.

Compared to his other works, this did not leave a lasting impression. I cried from his book, One More Day. The Tuesdays with Morrie and the Five people you meet in Heaven was the two that introduced me to his work. I felt like he tried too hard in this work whereas the other ones just flowed. It could be because the storyline is split between three characters that I felt no attachment to any. But I digress, I didn't enjoy this book compared to his others.

I liked the book, compared to his others- not as much. If it were a book written by anybody else I would have enjoyed it more. The beginning was slow but it ended strongly. His writing normally brings me to tears. Not this time. A satisfying ending.

The Time Keeper --- by --- Mitch Albom. This is very unusual story, more of a parable, if you will. It is brief and will take you no time at all to read. I’m not sure what category it fits into: it’s not Science Fiction, although it has some of the characteristics of such. It could pass for something written for Rod Serling. It’s about the man who discovered time a long time ago. And because he discovered it he was punished by exile to eternity. Before he can redeem himself, escape eternity and return to his present, he must help two hapless people deal with time: one who wants more and one who wants less. An interesting sidelight on time and what we want of it.
