This book grabbed by attention before I even opened it up mainly due to Miller’s previous book, ‘Blue Like Jazz’. Donald Miller is an incredible writer than will take you on a journey you believe you are part of. He is funny, interesting and very transparent.
A Million Miles In Thousand Years is a peak into a man who realizes his life is not as interesting and fulfilled as one would hope for. This is a peak into the life of Donald Miller himself. He takes the reader on a journey through a process he went through in evaluating his own life. Through an opportunity to allow a movie to be made on the basis of his life story, Miller realized his own life story lacked a punch. After his character had been edited so much to make the movie interesting he decided to go on a quest to reinvent his life story so that he could leave a lasting impression on this earth.
In the beginning Miller is delightfully entertaining, making fun at his own expense and enticing us with his quirky character. By the end of the book it is impossible not to find yourself evaluating your own life. Having an urge to reinvent your own life story that is not only interesting and fulfilled, but a life story that will leave a lasting impression. Miller shares stories of people he met while editing his own life like Bob the Lawyer or Jim the organizer. My personal favorite was one about a man called Mike who kidnapped a girls cat so that he could get to speak with her.
This is a book that I would like everyone I know read. What a powerful thing it would be if everyone evaluated their lives like Don Miller did. If everyone realized they were put on this earth for more than just the average life. If you want inspiring today go and get this book. I promise you, once you pick it up you’ll read it until your eyes and brain can not process anymore words. One of the best books I have read this year.
