Momo is different from the other girls, she’s gifted with the extraordinary ability of listening.
The Time’s Bank is an institution created and led by a group of men who are, always, dressed with gray clothes. They cheat people telling everyone that they must save their time in the Time’s Bank, so, in the future they could enjoy of all the time that they have been saving, but their real purpose is to steal everyone’s time and consume it. Everyone gets obsessed with the idea of saving time and forgets every other aspect of life, they’re always in a hurry, without knowing that all the time they’re saving is consumed by the men dressed in gray and that they’re only losing a lot of time.
Momo, along with the turtle Casiopea will defeat the Time’s Bank and they’ll remind to the people all the important things that are part of living.
This is a wonderful and intelligent book. It’s true that a lot of people are, always, in such hurry that they stop enjoying life. The only thing that they want to do is to save time and they never rest.
I think that it’s important to enjoy every little aspect of life. It’s true that time is very important and we don’t know how much time we’re going to live, but we must not get obsessed with time, all the obsessions are bad.
Everyone should read this book. It makes you think about a lot of important matters and it’s unforgettable.
