A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

A Million Mile in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller
Donald Miller is back! Yes! Long have I been anticipating his latest book (I actually didn’t even know he had a new one coming out until I checked Thomas Nelson’s web page and saw it). Needless to say, I have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated Blue Like Jazz, Searching For God Knows What, and To Own a Dragon. I will be up front and honest: if you do not like Donald Miller’s books, you will not like this one.

However, if you like it, or are new to Miller, this book is a treat. For one, you learn a bit about the process of turning Blue Like Jazz into a movie, and the cycle of adapting the story for screenplay. Miller writes with his trademark style of wit and thoughtfulness. He even has one of cartoons in here as well. You even learn a bit more about his father, a theme heavily explored in To Own a Dragon.

The main theme is this book is Story, and I would say Miller captures it quite wonderfully. I would like to consider myself a storyteller, and after reading this book I feel that I have an even better grasp of it.

If you are a Miller fan, I recommend this. If you are a storyteller, I would recommend this.
5/5 stars
