Mitch Albom rediscovered his college professor and mentor, Morrie Schwartz, in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited Mitch every Tuesday, just like in college. This is a chronicle of their time together and their final "class": lessons in how to live.

 Thought provoking

| | See all suziepips's reviews (2)

Well some people may say that this book points out the obvious. Things we should and should not do with our lives, how we treat people and how we live each day. Yes it does all of that, but do we actually do what makes us happy? well this book has made me re-think how I do things from now on. It made me realise that I should do what is important to me and my family and shut out the drivel that most of us cant seem to live without. TV, celebrity etc Happiness and fullfilment is the most important thing in our lives and this book spells it out!

 Fantastic!

This book is brilliant it was my girlfriend who told me to read this so not to disappoint her i did and it was fantastic with a gripping story line it keeps you hooked until the very last page it makes you accept that we are all going to die at some point why not embrace it now.

 The importance of listening

| | See all LesleyB's reviews (2)

I quite agree with Suzie, this was thought provoking and inspiring, yes its easy to be very cynical and say its obvious, but if its so obvious how is the world in the state its in? We all know how we should live but we dont listen to our consience, good morals are not 'cool'. Its 'cool' to be cynical and sneering, how sad!
As for the comment 'he dies boo hoo' this person obviously has never had to watch a loved one waste away to death.
This book makes us think, which is all Morrie ever wanted.

 Over-emotional drivel

| | See all ewanfmurray's reviews (5)

Apparently this is a bestseller? Well roll up readers, if you can write down a long list of basic moralistic ideas, you're onto a bestselling novel yourself.

Synopsis: Boy inspired by university lecturer. Boy leaves university. Boy turns into a man and forgets about his once inspired ideals. Man sees old lecturer on TV and decides to meet him once last time.

Terminally ill Morrie then rants on at our main character for the rest of the book: family is important, live life to the max, money isn't everything, blah blah blah. After a sickening bombardment of patronising rudimentary moral lessons, Morrie begins to die. Boo Hoo. :-(

This book is unbearably cheesy. For example, the lecturer - Morrie- is from the Bronx, i.e. a once impoverished individual, who has climbed life's ladder against all odds. Not original.

Anyway, yes, this book is well written but it is uninspiring at best. In all honesty, unless you were brought up with as much philosophical insight as a squashed snail, you won't find anything new in this. However if your after a quick read and the meaning of life - yeh right - you can't go far wrong with Morrie.
