This is an interesting look at time and why having only a finite amount of time on earth is so important.

Interesting read with the use of an hourglass to reverse the direction of time. The book makes me think that while I cannot go back and change things that have already happened, I can think about how I can better my life (and possibly the lives of others) in the future.

Complete garbage. The characters were all one-sided, stereotypes with zero depth. You will enjoy this if you're a dunce.

Like most of his books Mr. Albom makes you evaluate and think about your life or life and death in general.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This is another thought-provoking tale from the inimitable Mitch Albom. This is in effect a modern-day parable revealing the folly in wanting to control time. The point is made that humans are the only animals that measure time, and it has become for us a curse. There is a plan, and it is never too late or too soon."

Did not enjoy it as much... I thought it was a bit boring but I did enjoy the meaning behind the story. I am eager to read other books Mitch Albom has written

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.

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?"

This is the story about Father Time. He was human once and wanted to learn more about the earth so devised ways to tell the passage of time. As punishment, he is put in a cave where he doesn't age and must listen to people's request about time. After thousands of years, its time to help two people learn the importance of time and why having limited time is so important. Short book, but with good insight on the meaning of time.
