14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Timothy J. Knight on 25 Sep 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is hard to review; it is a beautifully crafted intertwining of self help, spirituality and self disclosure.

It's premise is that by discovering what makes a movie script interesting and meaningful and applying those principals to your life, you will live a meaningful and interesting life. It covers Miller's own transformation from dreamy couch-potato to someone who does stuff, profound, fun, hard, interesting, risky, stuff. By doing so he finds meaning and hope. And he tells stories about inspiring people. You will want to meet him and his friends.

The prose is lackadaisical and has a beat poetry like feel to it that belies the profundities that are hidden within. And it is an easy read - almost too easy because you can catch yourself missing what he is saying as you float along on his easy style, but maybe that is just me.

My one issue - read this book if you are stuck in a rut, bored, stressed and looking for inspiration, but probably not if you are profoundly, significantly depressed because it may read like a prolonged urging to "just pull yourself together and get on with it." and the guilt and self condemnation that follows when you can't may make things worse. Read it when you have travelled a few miles along the road to recovery and then, well, see where the story leads you.

PS.Why ever has no one else reviewed this book? I feel a bit vulnerable out here on my own!

I purchased this product following a recommendation on a charity website that I frequent. I didn't expect a lot from it - perhaps just a standard: there is hope message. Instead what I got was a interesting and thoughtful read. Something that at times made me chuckle and at others had me surprised and moved by the raw honesty. The premise of the book is that we all live our own stories and this is something that is well explored throughout.

I enjoyed the book - read through it in a few hours as I couldn't put it down. I'd recommend it to anyone that has reached a point in their life where they are wondering what next? I'm very tempted to look through his other books as well which, to me, is the sign of a great read.

First of all, let me make something clear - this book is incredible. Don's journeys and challenges, even his conversations, are incredible insightful and interesting. Here's a man just wanting to write a story and he realises he has to LIVE his story to write it down.
His theory that Life is just a story to be lived is actually really heart-warming. It's perhaps a bit naïve to think so, but therein lies the book's secret weapon: Donald Miller is not a brilliant writer; he writes quite basically and from a position of unknowing innocence. But that's not a bad thing because, at the end of the day, none of us know ANYTHING about life. This clever device makes A Million Miles in a Thousand Years a universal book that anyone can relate to. Very funny and yet devastatingly heartbreaking in places, it's a quite phenomenal read.
I'd be very surprised if you weren't a tad inspired after putting it down.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and had finished it within 24 hours of its arrival. As a writer, he is both captivating and hilarious, with that unique ability to have you feel like you are chatting with him over a cup of coffee.
Excellent book, which has also personally challenged me in my story of life.

I should have known really. An American book about life changing events. I looked in the description to see if it was religious and there was nothing there. God, heaven etc. is on almost every page so avoid it if you dislike that claptrap. Shame, it is quite an interesting book apart from that.

By Sue on 17 May 2014
Format: Paperback
This is the story of what happens when two film-makers want to make a movie about Donald Miller’s life. He learns – and explains, with anecdotes – about the ways film characters vary from real life, and in doing so explores some of his own hang-ups and longings.

He learns, too, about living a story.. and finds himself on a physically painful long bike-ride to raise money for charity, and an emotionally difficult journey trying to find out about the father he never knew. Written in his apparently random way, this is highly readable, often moving, frequently thought-provoking, and definitely recommended.
