When I was over in the US earlier this year I did some cheap book shopping, and amongst other I picked up the book The Timekeeper by Mitch Albom whom I fell in love with (as an author) when I read Tuesdays with Morrie. The Timekeeper is another well worth reading book as it make you think about what we have and what we want.
It’s all about time, and how we never seem to have enough of it, how we use it differently and how some of us waste it while others want more – either way we are never happy. It remind us that the one thing we know for sure is that each and every one of us will die, the one certainty we all have from the day we are born, all other things in our life we can never foresee.
It’s also about how we waste time until the point in time have the realization that we are close to the end, so reading this book is a reminder to take advantage of the time we have now! It is written is such a simple way, without complications and difficult words that only smart people can read. The only objection I would have is the God thrown into the mix since I do not believe in any kind of God, it such a small part of the big picture that it doesn’t ruin the experience though. The message remains the same!
It might be that the subject of this book comes very close to heart right now and that is why it made such an impact on me. I want to believe that even if it wasn’t so I would sit down and have a good think after reading it – and I recommend all of you to read it!
