It's Mitch album surely it's good as his other books have been enjoyable. Expecting a great storyline with a depth of meaning and philosophy I found myself becoming increasingly agitated and depressed. Father time starts out as a young curious boy who invents how to read time and marries the love of his life only to have major life changes and ends up in a cave having to listen to people constantly ask for more time in is head. Then we follow a couple of other character storylines.....a young girl with unrequited love and a rich old man dying of cancer..... I have to say I was thinking about the book when I wasn't reading it, and feeling sorry for father time stuck in a cave.....
Halfway through this I wanted to put it down and give up but I persevered. It started to change a little about the 3/4 mark and I thought finally.... But no the journey takes us to a sad place.
It does finish on a positive for some and a negative for others (not to spoil the story should you read it), but I have to say I didn't enjoy it and maybe I missed the whole point but I am happy to swiftly move on and find more useful things for my time !
