‡ The Time Keeper ‡

So, like what I wrote on the previous post, I spent my time with reading books during the flood.
One of the books I bought weeks ago is "The Time Keeper", written by Mitch Albom.

For all of you who came across this random post, just for your random information, reading book is one of my most favorite hobbies.
However romance novels are not in my lists. I do read them sometimes but... I just can't make them my favorites for an unknown reason.

Fantasy is my favorite genre. Speak about Harry Potter as the example.
I also go for inspirational book. Chicken Soup for the Souls, Life's Golden Ticket by Brendon Burchard, or books by Jon Gordon.

Mitch Albom is an American best-selling author. He is notable for "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven".
The Time Keeper is his newest book and I read it in less than half day, simply mean that I love the book that I didn't want to stop reading it until I finished.

The story delivers a simple plot with three people as the main characters.
There is no complex word to confuse my dictionary so I think you don't need to think hard while reading it; all you need it is to reflect what's written with your ongoing life.

One who counted the gift from God.
One who refused the time given to her.
One who wanted more of his time.

There are many quotes those make me question myself:

"Have I done my best till this moment?"

"Do I appreciate time I have received?"

"Why do human never treasure what they have until they're gone?"

What I'm trying to tell here is...

Go and read the book.
Tell me what's your opinion later. ;)

It's well written and powerful at a point where you will be reminded that time is a gift from God and, even though human made his way to measure the gift, it's still a gift that you can't control.
All we can do is to do what we can when we have the chance.
