The Time Keeper By Mitch Albom

After reading this book I felt that time is something immeasurable and that we should always treasure it. Some people want more time and others want to reverse time. The story is about a man named Dor who was punished for trying to control time and was sent to Earth after being banished in a cave for thousands of years with a mission to save two different people - a girl who wants to kill herself after being rejected by the boy she loved and a rich old man diagnosed with cancer and is desperate to live longer. In the end, they were brought together by Dor, now known as Father Time and time stopped completely. Father Time had saved them with a power not known by man. When the two woke up, it was as if nothing ever happened and they let it pass as a dream. Father Time then found himself in the era where he existed as a man and everything was back to normal. His mission has been completed. It is a really deep book that makes it's readers think twice about their own notions of time and how precious it really is.
