Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

The Time Keeper

The Time Keeper - Mitch Albom Since the dawn of time man has been measuring what we do and don’t do. We are introduced to Dor and his family. Dor creates the first clock and pays dearly for being engrossed with measuring time instead of just living. God banishes Dor to a cave with no way out. There is where he hears the cries of those who ask for more or less time. Eventually he is released, gets reacquainted with humanity and finds a way to help some.

I find that all of Mitch Albom’s books are clever, moving and thought provoking. I seem to always find at least one sentence that turns my way of thinking in a way I could not imagine. He never uses to big of words or metaphors that you have to stop and take time to understand. Albom’s writing just flows into something so natural you feel you have heard before.

I do not know about anyone else but the fact that God punished Dor for creating a the first clock is a little scary. I mean if you think about it Dor was only doing what he was good at, what came natural to him. Would you not say that was why God created him with that skill? If that is so then why punish for a way of thinking that was given as a gift from God?

Even though there is things I do not understand about God’s reasoning. I still enjoyed the book and still love learning about myself and others by reading what Mitch Albom writes.
