"Provocative and yet beautifully considerate and attentive, this is a book that gifts you the awareness of time and how to make the most of it."
An inspiring book for everyone. If you’re always looking at your watch or frantically working within timescales, or if you’re simply aware of time constantly slipping through your fingers, then create some space for this book in your life. It isn’t a quick read, in fact I recommend slowing down to allow your thoughts to fully access, to savour and consider. The concept of time is incredibly simple, yet intricately complicated and intertwined within our lives. Jenny Odell (bestselling author of How to Do Nothing recommended by Barack Obama) gives us: “conceptual tools for thinking about what “your time” has to do with the time you live in”. She states: “I believe that a real meditation on the nature of time, unbound from its everyday capitalist incarnation, shows that neither our lives nor the life of the planet is a foregone conclusion. In that sense, the idea that we could “save” time - by recovering its fundamentally irreducible and inventive nature - could also mean that time saves us”. Here you explore time on both an epic and an intimate scale, it felt to me like an awakening, and a realisation. This is a book that is perfectly placed to exist after the lockdowns of Covid-19, a time when apparently many people aged faster, and gives you the chance and encouragement to look at life and your place within the world. Saving Time is thought-provoking and thoughtful in its purpose, a LoveReading Star Book and Liz Pick of the Month, it comes as highly recommended by our team.
