Critical Praise

“Think of Mitch Albom as the Babe Ruth of popular literature, hitting the ball out of the park every time he’s at bat.” –Andrea Sachs, TIME

***

“Mitch Albom is a fearless explorer of the wishful and magical, he is also a devout believer in the power of love. --James McBride, author of The Color of Water

***

“Mitch Albom has never failed to delve into the depths of relationships, the sometimes dark and mysteriously gray areas of our interactions with people. He has pondered what we learn in our day-to-day intersections with those we love and those we hardly know, those anchors we’ve lost, those we’ve simply shaken hands with.” -Bookreporter.com

***

“What I like in his books is that the characters are working-class heroes and everyday people” – Guillaume Musso, best-selling French author – Paris Match, December 2006

***

“Mitch Albom sees the magical in the ordinary” -- Cecilia Ahern

old from the unique observations of God's Angel of Truth, this is a harrowing story of four individuals in the years leading up to and including WWII and the decades following. There are moments of great heartache, interspersed with times of burgeoning hope. Their stories are intimately individual and yet intertwined to give the reader a perspective of their inner thoughts and motivations. Mitch Albom has perfectly captured the worst of history when man's inhumanity is fully revealed, and yet there are moments of sacrifice and kindness that offset the horrors. I am in awe of and grateful for an author who fully captures this experience. This is a memorable book.… (lisätietoja)

It puts everything back in perspective. I loved hearing the author read the book, and the actual interview at the end.

Oh my goodness, another great read that I can’t believe I haven’t picked up until now! I have always enjoyed Mitch Albom’s books and kind of thought I had read them all, but surprise!, I found this one on my library shelf and grabbed it for my vacation. It is one of his best in my opinion!

Time. Why do we count it in every increment possible? Does that obsession help us in any way or hurt us in every way? What does Father Time think?

I am in Pittsburg for 2 weeks and I am going to try and let time go and just enjoy life. I encourage you to do the same whenever possible!!… (lisätietoja)

3.5 for me on this one. I like Mitch Albom books in general and I liked this one too; I just didn’t love it. It felt a bit forced and cliché to me. As a good friend described it…meh.
