The Time Keeper


By Mitch Albom

I found this fictional story very interesting, the story tells how father time became father time. The main character Dor start out wanting to keep track of time in everything he does. He invents different way to keep track of time, like the water clock and the calendar. The story tells many parts of his life, from his childhood to his adult life and ends up in a cave as father time. The story continues with Dor tells stories of two people, Sarah Lemon and Victor Delamonte. Sarah, a teenager, and Victor, a elderly businessman, want to stop time or get more time for what they think is important. Neither knows the other but they will before the end of the story. The story shows how our lives can interact with others. A fascinating story of how we will try to manipulate things for what we think is the best way. This book will inspire you and will help you to understand the true meaning of time.

Here is a quote from the book that I like; Dor was talking to Victor about why there is a limit on our days:

"There is a reason God limits our days."


"To make each one precious."
