I read this book two years ago and I still think about the story today.It is a beautiful story of a man trying to find a second chance in life.
If you enjoy Mitch Albom stories
you will enjoy this book.
Book utilizes an imaginary circus as a metaphor for review of the main characters life and as a vehicle for change. All of the ride "attendents" are more like individual life coaches who each have a message for the central character. The book is meant to inspire not as a how too book which seems to be a little too abundant in recent times. Nice story, well written--inspires us to walk the tightrope and be willing to take the fall. Also pleasant is reoccurring theme of love.
