How many of you have read this and loved it? I love all the books by Mitch Albom. Here are some questions:
1.) If you loved this book, why do you think you loved it so much? Why is it such a great book?
2.) If you were in Morries shoes, would you handle death getting closer or freak out?
3.) Who is your favorie person and why?
This is funny, because I just finished writing a review Hub on this book because I read it two days ago for the first time!
1. I enjoyed it, though not loved. It definitely has a great philosophy and the connection between Morrie and Mitch is heart warming in the common, "desensitized man regains his self through a mentor who is dying" sort of way.
2. I would like to think that if I was Morrie's age I would handle death with dignity such as he did. My grandfather is his age and has been battling pancreatic and prostate cancer for the better part of six years. He now is on hospice with only about another month or so left to live and he is like Morrie. He has accepted his lot in life and is taking the last moments he has to spend with family and friends. If I was my age (26) and found out I was dying, I would most likely freak out, but I think that may be common among those my age, especially with a young child like I have.
3. Well, I think this is a given. Morrie. His strength and love is apparent, not only in the discussions with Mitch where he shows a great aptitude for understanding human emotions and how he handled them, but also in the interviews on Nightline. Which is why he touched so many people before he died.
I read this book such a long time ago I forgot everything. Sorry. But I did like it because it was written very simply and was easy to understand.
I read it a few weeks ago for English 12. Finished the book in an hour. =]
it is a good book. it was an admirable act on the part of both parties.
am going through something similar now with a friend in advanced stages of parkinsons.
went through it seven years ago with my 93 y.o. neighbor. then one morning, gone.
It was. I went to visit my old english teacher yesterday and we talked about this for about 10 mins. We agreed that one reason people may like the book is because death is inevitabled, it happens to us all and the way Morrie handle it with so much courage and his ideas of death could help us. Mitch showed us how to help, handle and deal.
I am very sorry about your neighbor and your friend! =[ I wish I could have read this book earlier because it could have helped in May when my grandfather passed away. He had so many problems, mainly caused by his livers failing and sending poisions all over in his body till it reached his brain... He was a trooper. Very strong, even up until the end.

I'm a YA author, so my list gets pretty exhaustive of "favorite books" in the children's world. Among them? ALL of Tamora Pierce's work and Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Give me a good girl adventure and I'm happy as a clam--and it's work that I'm still pretty...
