Summary

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 her were a character in a movie. Years after writing his 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 listeners to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around.

Favourite Audio of 2010

I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this audio. I love the concept that our lives are story, that they can be made better or worse depending on how we want to live. Simple but so powerful.

I think this has to be my favourite book of 2010, as its written in a style that really captivated me, easily taking me on the author?s journey with him. His descriptions of emotions, characters, situations, scenery and the mundane is just brilliant and I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

I took a while to listen to it as I didn?t want to rush and miss anything out, by not giving it my full attention.

Donald Miller?s narration is excellent, adding to the enjoyment of the book. I?m a new comer to Miller?s work but I will definitely be looking out for more in the future.

Thanks to christianaudio.com?s reviewers program for this copy.

Are you feeling stuck? Or perhaps adrift?

If you are feeling stuck or adrift then Donald Miller's earthy, self-depricating story-telling might just be what you need. I always listen with a wry smile.

Makes you think, powerful, fun.

Don reads his own book and because of that he really makes it. The voice tone and inflection adds something that I did not expect. His cadence and flow make this GREAT story even better. I am sorry, but I don't get the title. The book has nothing to do with bikes, time or traveling.
It reminds you to live a good life, to live a good story - a story worth telling. It is a very human book.

A story about living a story

I spent a day at the park and listened to this book, start to finish. I laughed out loud, I cried a little, and I took with me some insights for my own life.

This book isn't for the cynical, but the hopeful. With an open heart and mind, you will -- at the very least -- enjoy a well-crafted journey of personal discovery. And if this book comes into your life at the right time, you'll get even more out of it.

I don't want to give anything away, because this book has the potential to delight, and I wouldn't want to rob anyone of that. If you enjoy thoughtful, self-aware writing with a message, this book is probably for you.
