Book Club: TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE



Tuesdays with Morrie, written by one of my favorite writers - Mitch Albom
Just like other Albom books, Tuesdays with Morrie gives us inspirations and lessons about life.
The real-life story of Morrie which is beautifully written by his former student, shows us that the influence of a teacher doesn't stop once the bell rang.


The book was dedicated to a man named Morrie Schwartz, Mitch Albom's professor and mentor.
The book revolves around the Tuesday sessions of Mitch and Morrie while the man was fighting for his life.


This book is a compilation of casual conversation between a teacher and a student. One, struggling with his illness another one was struggling with his self dissatisfaction. 
This book somehow shows how the two characters differently perceives life.


Though, many says the book was poorly written (probably because it's more of a life documentation) I must say, the substance of the book is quite heavy.











Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
       
      Goodread ratings: 4.06

I personally recommend this book for fellow teachers and also, with people fighting a disease.

  1. Hmmmm... Sounds interesting. Books about, let's say, normal life are pretty hard to write cuz you have to make special from basic things. I will look for this book.
    lots of love

    1. Yes, I agree. I also believe that Albom just wanted to present the story as raw as possible thus it was written the way it is.

    1. Good to here that there's someone who also loves Albom's works. And yeah, I already read Five People You Meet in Heaven, but my favorite is For One More Day.

  3. Oh I enjoyed reading this book! I loved it, though I wasn't able to finish it. I remember I spent an hour or two at a local bookstore reading this, but never got the chance to purchase one. This post reminds me that I should already grab my own copy.
