One time read types

Having read almost all the books written by Mitch ALbom till date, I found that this wasn't one of his best works. The Time Keeper, no doubt, is a good read but not as profound as some of the others like Tuesdays with Morrie, Five People..
Also towards the end, it felt like a bit of Christmas Carol(yes, that's the first thing that will come to your mind).

For the kind of excitement I had before reading it(considering it is "Mitch ALbom"), this book was a bit of a disappointment for me.

Excellent condition

The product was neatly packed and arrived on time. The book is 100% original and is worth every penny. Some other sellers sell such books at a cheaper price, but it's better to pay some more and get the original copy. I definitely recommend this deal.

Good enough

Interesting but only those people should buy it who like tales of the past as you don't see names like Dor and Ali (woman) in modern era. At least not in India. And of course there are reasons why characters are named such. I liked it. But not everyone would. It's a serious story.

Page turner!

I'm not one of those die hard reading fan! but i have to say that this book is a truly page turner and it keeps the reader attached to its awesome story!
The story has 3 different time periods which makes its interesting and attached and it is also very helpful for the people who doesn't know what to do with their lives.
It explains the importance and the value of TIME and LIFE in a entertain way!
(It was suggested by my English teacher for its language and content )

Nice book

It's a bit monotonous in the beginning, but the story picks up pace after the first 20 or 25 pages. You've just gotta persevere against the urge to put the book down and read "Harry Potter" or something. But, it is rewarding in the end. Not everyone would like it. The narrative falls a little short at times. But, the story inspires you and motivates you, at least if you can stick right till the end.

A Masterpiece

Wow is the word I would want to describe The Time Keeper as. I finished reading it in a night. A sheer genius Mitch Albom is. And the way he portrayed Dor, Victor and Sarah was very nice. Catchy title and a wow book to read. Loved it. A masterpiece in my collection!

Measuring Time is not same as Understanding time

When was the last time you said "Time is too slow" or "Time is too fast". The book has mesmerizing story that will make you realize that measuring time is not same as understanding time. And hopefully it will motivate you to make best use of this precious gift that God has gifted to mankind.

Must read to understand Time

One of the key takeaways of the book is the understanding ot Time. the way Mitch Albom explain time is simply captivating. Although the story line is not super awesome, but the message is put across really well. And since its a 200 page book, i'd recommend you to quickly flip over this over a weekend.
