Full of beautiful, heart-wrenching, and hilarious stories, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details one man's opportunity to edit his life as if he were a character in a movie. Years after writing a best-selling memoir, Donald Miller went into a funk and spent months sleeping in and avoiding his publisher. One story had ended, and Don was unsure how to start another. But he gets rescued by two movie producers who want to make a movie based on his memoir. When they start fictionalizing Don's life for film--changing a meandering memoir into a structured narrative--the real-life Don starts a journey to edit his actual life into a better story. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details that journey and challenges readers to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around.
I love Donald Miller's books and his incredibly down to earth writing style. He is the type of author that seems to write what I am thinking... the kind of author you genuinely think you could be friends with if you knew them in real life. The great kind.
I was hooked on A Million Miles In A Thousand Years right from page one. I love the humour mixed in with incredible truth. This is not the first Donald Miller book I have read and hopefully it won't be my last! I would definitely recommend this book to pretty much everyone. This book would make an excellent Christmas gift for the readers in your life.
