If I were to rate this book I'd probably give it 2 stars I feel bad doing that though so I'm just leaving it blank It's not that it's a bad book It's a nice little fable and has good intentions Many will no doubt find it comforting and life affirming I just found it all a bit too obvious for my taste Perhaps I'm just not one who feels I need a fable to remind me how precious our time on earth is or how important it is to try to live in the moment I'm all too aware of it every day

Rather uirky and unusual but still a light read this is a story about Father Time and the man who discovered time in the first place I enjoyed the way it was told in short chapters which circled around three different points of view There was humour and there was sadness and there was a lot of philosophy about life and death but it was never deep or hard to understand I have not read any of this author's other famous books yet but I certainly will now This was an ideal book to read on hot Sydney summer Sunday with the air conditioning on full blast I love days when you just have to stay inside and read

The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom has been on my excitement list for a while now Such a great cover an author I really enjoy and a story about Father Time how could I not be excitedWhat I expected and what I got were two different things however Instead of getting an interesting complex story about a fantastical creature I got instead chopped bits of a story tossed together like a bit of a human salad and mixed all up This story is part Dor part Victor and part Sarah but does not spend enough time with any one of them to make me as a reader feel connected to them I felt a bit of pity for Sarah was highly annoyed by Victor and just confused by Dor Father Time That lack of connection took this book from something that I was hoping I would connect to and feel inspired by to simply a story that frankly wasn't really that goodI think where this went wrong was the way the book was formatted first of all bold lettering making a statement before a paragraph about the character This constantly jarred me and made me realize I was reading a book and kept the characters from fully forming in my imagination Secondly Victor and Sarah were just not very likable Victor an old rich man who is dying after a full life wants to find immortality and Sarah a teenager who has just been dumped by her first crush is suicidal It wasn't big enough for me not real enough Where are the people who have dealt with huge issues and struggling against depression it's out there the homeless the abused What about those who are working for good and want to continue to live to see that succeedI'm disappointed that The Time Keeper didn't work for me I'm disappointed that I spent all that time although maybe there's a lesson for me anticipating a story that did not live up to its promise But most of all I'm sad that I invested my precious time in a story that felt rushed and unwilling to commit time back to me
