The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom – Discussion (contains Spoilers)

The Time Keeper

The Time Keeper

* Note this is a discussion about the book not a review and contains spoilers!*

Discussion Points:

* Short chapters and different viewpoints were very well written.  Kept you wanting to know what each character was going to do next.

* Each sentence was necessary to the plot.  Dialogue propelled story and gave you necessary details without overloading the reader with too much information.

* Ending was extremely satisfying – Even though Victor died, it was a realistic conclusion with other character’s achieving happiness.

* The mythical Father Time aspect is perfectly woven throughout the story and seems believable.  It does not take away from the reality of the story.

* The concept of wanting more time (Victor) vs. wanting time to hurry up (Sarah) was portrayed brilliantly.  Time is a topic that everyone is faced with and you could understand what both characters were going through.

* The Cryonics aspect was fascinating.  It is a topic that I did not know much about and it was interesting to read how the writer describe the process (fictionally of course).
