Wibbly Wobbly Wednesdays is a new feature on this blog where we talk about any book that has something to do with the concept of time. The book may be about time travel, set in the past or future, or just has a bizarre timeline. If you are a Whovian, you know what we're talking about! :)

The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom

Before, we said that we have never read a Mitch Albom book. Now, we can honestly say that we have since we have just finished reading The Time Keeper. We realized that it would be perfect for our Wibbly Wobbly Wednesdays post so we chose it for the post. 



Title: The Time Keeper
Author: Mitch Albom
Hardcover: 224 pages
Publisher: Hyperion

Synopsis (via Goodreads): 

In this fable, the first man on earth to count the hours becomes Father Time. The inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time.

He returns to our world--now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently began--and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever. To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so.

We realized that Mitch Albom truly is a great author. This book was beautiful and heartwarming. We were transported into The Time Keeper's world and got lost in it. We loved it from the very first page and we thought that we should share this to all of you so that you can also see how great this book is. We are looking forward to reading more of Mitch Albom's works. We hope Mitch remains as good an author as he is now.
