The Time KeeperIs banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seekingdaysyears Eventually with his soul nearly broken Father Time is granted his freedom along with a magical hourglass and a mission a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time He returns to our world now dominated by the hour counting he so innocently began and commences The Time Keeper is one of those great works of literature where most everyone who had read it will tell you You MUST read this book Yet when I picked up the slight hardcover that I'd put off reading for far too look I continued to uestion the wisdom of the collective masses The simplicity of Albom's style at least as it appeared to me at the beginning of the book made me wonder what all the fuss was about What did this prehistoric couple the man in the cave a girl in a present day watch store and cryonics have to do with each other?Am I glad I decided to read on As it turns out Albom is a genius and the beauty of his prose is in its precisionThere is nothing superfluous on the page Each word has purpose and meaning as Albom masterfully weaves the cords of his story togetherThough there is a temptation to race through Albom's works due to their brevity I've found it best to slow myself down to better appreciate them By taking the time to fully digest each sentence and ruminate on the subtext I found great meaning in The Time Keeper It is a work I treasure and yes strongly encourage others to read too
