The Time keeper : Is this a fable about Dor, the inventor of the first clock? Or is it the tale of Victor, the world's fourteenth richest man, who craves immortality and is willing to pay any price for it? Or is it the story of Sarah the teenager and her first love? It is perhaps all three spun together magically by Mitch Albion.

Not only s the tale spellbinding, Albion uses it to expound on some truths which strike a chord in the reader such as, "once he could read, all knowledge was within reach,"; and, "with endless time, nothing is special. With no loss or sacrifice, we can't appreciate what we have."

As always Albion has succeeded in talking about a very serious subject in a very understandable way.

This is the best book I've read in some time! After reading this book, it will be awhile before you say "I wish it were the weekend."

Mitch Albom is a fantastic writer. "The Time Keeper" really displays the perils of wishing time to be other than what it's meant to be.

Love this book! Amazing what time does and doesn't do for us. Too much time, too little time. All in due time, what would we do without time. Are you a time keeper?

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Bestselling author Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie) turns his attention to Father Time in his new fabulist page-turner. Long ago — before a word like 'ago' had any meaning — a man named Dor began to chart the passage of time, immediately realizing that 'all his days were numbered,' and so were his wife's. When she falls deathly ill, Dor climbs the Tower of Babel to beg the gods for help. But as a result of his brazenness, he is banished to a cave where he must endure listening to humanity plead for 'more hours, more years, more time.' After 6,000 years of torment, Dor is finally released back into the modern world with an enchanted hourglass and a mission: to teach two wayward souls the true value of time — Sarah Lemon, a distressed teen, who wishes the end would come quickly, and Victor Delamonte, a prosperous aging businessman trying his best to keep the end at bay. With a clever conceit and frequent shifts in perspective, Albom deftly juggles multiple narratives to craft an inspiring tale that will please his fans and newcomers alike. (Sept.)"
