The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom (a self-described secular Jew) is about a man named Dor (Hebrew for “generation”) who first measured time.
This book is a bit of an uncomfortable reminder of how humans, unlike animals, constantly count seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years. And yet, with all this counting, we have no control over time as far as speeding it up or slowing it down.
Instead of controlling time, we are slaves to it.
Here’s a video of the author sharing the synopsis of the story. I promise you’ll love the premise:I gave this book 4.5 stars out of 5 simply because, well, I can’t tell you until you read the book.
I loved the book. There was just one little irritating thing about it that kept me from giving it a whole 5 stars.
When you read it, please share with me what you thought about it! I’d love to know!
