The story is primarily about trading in time. When people don’t like their lives, or they want to change something, they can come to Mr. Henares and sell a certain amount of time. Conversely, they can also purchase time from him – a particular event, really. In the story we experience events initially from Mr. Henares’s perspective, but then we also read about his clients’ experiences. This makes for an interesting and somewhat poignant tale.

I liked the Filipino flavour of the story, and the images conveyed in the words were clear. A lovely read, with plenty of food for thought.
