5 starsYou know, Mitch, now that I m dying, I ve become much interesting to peopleWhile he was an undergrad, Mitch absolutely loved Morrie Schwartz s college courses he took every class that professor taught.
But, like most students, Mitch lost contact with everything and anything to do with his undergraduate years as soon as he graduated That isuntil he learns that his favorite professor doesn t have long left ALS is like a lit candle it melts your nerves and leaves your body a pile of wax.
So, Mitch on an impulse decides to visit Morrie one last timeand that one last time turned into something else entirely The class met on Tuesdays It began after breakfast The subject was The Meaning of Life It was taught from experience.
Over the course of a couple of months, Mitch reconnects with Morrie and in the process, learns the last great lesson from his college professorEveryo If I were to die unexpectedly I wouldn t be ashamed in the least of someone finding my porn stash And by the way, that video isn t bestiality, it s just two guys in a moose suit big difference I would be a little ashamed of the fact that I have the first season of 90210 on my iPod, something I downloaded for a friend s 14 year old daughter note to self delete it now I m worried about someone coming across Tuesdays with Morrie or Eat, Pray, Love in my book collection I have some explaining to do.
Like any pseudo intellectual dipshit, I wouldn t normally be caught dead with pieces of shit like those two in my library, but I believe that given my current living situation there are extenuating circumstances I buy books compulsively, especially when they are really inexpensive I pass by a pawn shop about once a month to buy books for.
50 each books in Spain are generally a bit expensive so at I have never written a review like this before but this book truly inspired me.
So I just finished reading Tuesdays with Morrie What a wonderful book, I couldn t put it down I cannot even imagine going through the last stages of my own life and being as brave for lack of a better word in my head right now as Morrie He was filled with such happiness and joy in his own life He had regrets but realized that it is ok as long as you can reconcile with yourself in the end I m not the type of person to find quotes in the literature I read However, as I turned page after page through this book and submersed myself into the text I was reading I found myself getting out of bed in the middle of the night to find some post its only to tag so many different paragraphs and pages that inspired me or had me think about things in my own life The idea of detaching oneself from emotions just Tuesdays with Morrie, Mitch AlbomFirst Publication date 1997 The story was later recreated by Thomas Rickman into a TV movie of the same name, directed by Mick Jackson, which aired on December 5, 1999 and starred Jack Lemmon and Hank Azaria Tuesday s With Morrie examines the interactions and phenomena between the human experience of living and dying A theme of personal transcendence appears for both characters Morrie and Albom 2008 1379 176 9644222554 20 1379 191 9646534228 1380 176 9645548810 1382 207 9649375848 1383 262 1387 173 9789647992305 1389 207 9786009036073 1389 132 9789645544957 1392 191 9789648403992 1393 160 9786009402069 This is one of those books where I find myself agreeing with the five star reviews and the one star reviews with almost equal enthusiasm.
On one hand, it s the sweet story of a man as he reconnects with a former mentor professor, who is facing a death sentence via ALS It s obvious that Albom s Tuesdays with Morrie provided them both with something substantially satisfying And that s inspiring and poignant Yet on the other hand, Albom s attempts to enlighten us transforms it into a Hallmark card on steroids, a rather dramatic and prolonged one that does little to demystify the true meaning of life than offer up tired and somewhat ambiguous cliches like love conquers all Though an honorable sentiment, it s not markedly substantive or instructive than the alternative, l
