Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

This was a great book. One of my friend was ranting and raving about how great this author was in Five People You Meet in Heaven. She bought this book and on that same day, I finished reading it.

The book was simply about how an ex-student (Mitch) meets up with his favourite college professor (Morrie). The professor was dying with ALS (a nerve disorder that’s pretty fatal) and his acceptance and trying to live to the fullest gets noticed by a television programme. The student who hasn’t kept in contact for over a decade catches it online, and he goes back and sees him.

All the touchy topics that most people are afraid to talk about nowadays were covered in this book, and we as an audience was given a chance to see Morrie’s deep, philosophical stuff. Certain topics like death, love, family, and etc were mentioned. Aside from that, we were allowed to see how the relationship between Mitch and Morrie began. We also saw a background of Morrie’s life where all his experiences molded into the person he became till he died.

I’d recommend this book to everyone. The book was a pleasure to read, and it was a good book to have for crying session. The book also allowed me to view the world and society in a whole new perspective. The simplicity of this book is so astounding, that it has reached the point of being a powerful read.
