it was amazing
bookshelves: audiobook, library

A book every go-go-goer of today needs to listen to. An amazing story about appreciating what we have and focusing on all the seemingly little (but really the biggest and most important) moments in life.

My parents and I took a LONG roadtrip this past fall and stopped at a Cracker Barrel for lunch. I suggested we pick up an audiobook to fill the silence during the drive. Now, I am typically drawn to YA literature and they...they would rather listen to the white noise on the radio than to anything YA. What they like are mysteries and Christian fiction. I found this audiobook and the back blurb sounded like something my folks would enjoy and I could stand to listen to.

As soon as the story started, I was hooked.

The reader does a phenomenal job capturing and bringing to life each of the characters. The story follows three main characters and, even though they are as different as can be, you are instantly sucked into each of their lives.

During the roadtrip we got lost and had to turn the audiobook off to listen to my Dad's GPS device disagree with my Mom's iPhone GPS. During that trip, we ended up seeing some beautiful parts of the country but I never did get to hear the last half of the book.

And the story has haunted me for months. I wanted to know what happened to Dor, Victor, and Sarah. So, 3 days ago, I just happened to pass by the Adult fiction audiobook shelf of my library (I was headed to the kiddie movies which they recently moved near the adult audiobooks--go figure) and by chance looked down and there was The Time Keeper, begging me to take it home.

And I am so glad I did!

I highly recommend this book to everyone and will be putting it on my husband's iPhone when he gets home tonight.
