On a stormy November evening, Jack Barrett had plans to treat his best friend Travis to a night of fine dining and jazz. As they neared their destination, a truck ran a red light, plowing through Jack’s car, and changing his life forever. Jack found a new outlook on life, and took on adventures that made him one of the world’s most admired people. With each step, Jack grew as a person and a leader; piecing together a family from different corners of the world, while risking himself and his family to save others. Jack’s impact on the world was like no other, but in the end, when the lights and the cameras were gone, Jack was about to die, or was he? Prepare yourself for an ending that questions the very nature between life and death, reality and dream.
From the first page, I found myself transported as a bystander, watching the crash that takes Jack's friend Travis. Then, to see that Jack has had an awakening. He knows that each day is a gift and he is determined to life everyday to the fullest and do what he can for others as well. His life is a wonderful journey and Jack ends up with a great family and does inspiring things with his career. He goes right to the top.
Jack is seventy-five and he's being interviewed about his life. That is how the reader is given the glimpses of Jack's life. The only thing I could ask for more of, is who Jack was before the crash. I wanted a comparison and I felt that lacking. But I don't care about that anymore. The ending of One Moment in Time is phenomenal and that cancelled out my want. Snyder has written a book that is thought-provoking, inspiring and entertaining. It's well-written and I really enjoyed it! Definitely pick this one up - it's great!
