Mitch Albom - Tuesdays with Morrie

reviwed live on bookshow by Sue Major 15th Nov 2012 Mitch Albom is a sports columnist in USA and an author of many books published there, in particular “ The Five People You meet in Heaven” “Tuesdays with Morrie” is a quick read. It is the true story of a re-kindling of a friendship between Morrie , the professor, and Mitch his student after a 16 year gap. In re-discovering Morrie, Mitch explores his own feelings, beliefs and values; indeed he re-evaluates everything that's important to him. It's gently almost tenderly written as it addresses issues that we may choose to avoid. It's a thought-provoking read; often it made me laugh out loud, at times it made me weep, but most of all it made me think. Amy Tan says that “this is a true story that shines and leaves you forever warmed by its afterglow”...I bet Mitch Albom is thrilled with that lovely summing up of his lovely book. Sue Major
