Mitch Albom is an extremely creative writer, and "The Time Keeper" presents a wonderful fable using "Father Time" as a main character to reinforce the importance of time and to identify what's truly important in our lives. Through this short and very readable book, Albom uses creative imagery and characters to remind us that we often spend too much time dwelling on the unimportant, and too often focus on the wrong things. His book uses two main characters, a teenage girl and an aging millionaire, to tell his story. Each have their own problems, and each learns a valuable lesson of what it truly important in life through their interaction with Father Time. The book is a simple story, neither "preachy" nor "sappy", but drives home the lesson that life is precious, and time with those who are important to us in life should never be neglected. ( )

I totally did that thing where I got this out from the library and read it before I was supposed to. This was a very good book, especially for one that I was forced to read for school (I almost always end up hating them, even if I loved them before we did it). It's a short book with characters of all ages and lifestyles so it's extremely possible to find a character to relate with on some aspect. They were all well developed. This book had a message to it, but it did feel like it was forced upon me. I knew that the message about time was what I was supposed to take away from this book and I did without it being all in face about it. I could probably go on for a long time, but I'll wait until my final assignment for that and maybe do a video review if you guys want it. ( )

I'm sorry to say this was an excrutiatingly boring book to listen to. I really resented the way this male author portrayed the teen Sara. We are told she is smart, but what we are shown is that she was obsessed with being liked, wearing the right clothes and makeup to attract a teen boy. Also, the setup for the cryogenics lab could have come right out of a '60's sci fi.
Heard as an audiobook, the last half on double speed. The ending didn't justify the time I spent on listening. Hah. I seem to have just proved his premise that our society is too time conscious.

A different type of story Mitch Albom. The first person who measures time is turned into Father Time. Then two modern people are later followed after complaining about time. Some interesting ideas about time and out relationship with it. ( )

Totally loved this short easy read and it got right to the point without a lot of wasted reading about unimportant things. Not sure I agreed with the punishment Dor had to endure because he was an inventor but understand if he really became that obsessed about time. The main characters blended together and sense by the end. I am sure I will recall this story many times in the future. The ending truly makes you think about the way that you look at events that are happening in your own life. ( )

Mitch Albom is an author of internationally bestselling books, including Tuesdays with Morrie, which topped the New York Times bestseller list in 2010. So he knew what he was doing when he sat down to write another novel about spirituality in a modern setting. In The Time Keeper, he sticks to his tried and tested literary recipe, which follows an elderly man on an existential journey to a grand realisation. This novel earns its place on the bookshelf for its compelling and original storyline; the man who first tried to measure time is punished by living an eternity. However, Albom fails to probe the full depths of this idea and is unable to write with enough style to carry it through into more than a clichéd censure on modern times.
