The Time KeeperFrom the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet The Time Keeper a compelling fable about the first man on Earth to count the hoursThe man who became Father Time In Mitch Albom's exceptional work of fiction the inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift I heard this story by listening to the audio book version which was narrated very well by Dan Stevens Audio books aren't my favorite book format because you can't mark them up if you feel so inclined although I do admit they can be very convenient After listening to the book I now need to read it There are so many passages I want to highlightWhen the story began I wasn't terribly taken with it However I uickly became became immersed in the story I loved it I liked the idea of how much time is part of our livesThe story is very well written no surprise there and is thought provoking as well I enjoyed it very much
