TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE-MITCH ALBOM REVIEW

“The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

So I am on a bit of a Mitch Albom kick, if you can’t tell.

Tuesdays With Morrie is his first nonfiction book. It tells of twelve “lessons” that Albom learns from his dying ex-professor Morrie, who has ALS. A successful sports journalist and broadcaster, Albom lost contact with his professor for sixteen years before random chance puts them back in touch during the last few months of Morrie’s life. This book is a reflection of that time they spend together, where they undergo a study of sorts, and discuss life, death, and everything in between.

I’ve said it before, when I did a review on the last Mitch Albom novel that I read, that I think he does his best work when writing nonfiction. Tuesday’s With Morrie can only be described using terms such as “moving”, “life changing”, and “an unforgettable experience.”

“Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hold on too long.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Morrie is the professor that we all wish we could have had. He is the caring and wise guidance figure that we all secretly want in our lives. Someone who is willing to both counsel and aid without judgement. Albom gives that to us in his description of Morrie, in remembering who he was and the life lessons that he taught to thousands of people, students and strangers alike.

Honestly, I have to say, when it comes to good books, sometimes there really doesn’t need to be a lot said about them.
