Review: Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson
Tuesdays with Morrie is a heart rendering novel about a dying man and his student.  They discuss many things but the most defining topic  is death.  It is difficult for most of us to discuss death and assimilate our feelings.  This book is a great way to open your mind and explore your dreams, desires and true feelings about your death and the death of a close loved one.  There are many mantras to live by and I loved most of them but sometimes it felt like "yadda, yadda, yadda".  You know; imagine the voice of Charlie Brown's teacher.  
This is great for book club discussions and one I would recommend.
SYNOPSIS by Barnes & Noble
Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher. Someone older who understood you when you were young and searching, who helped you see the world as a more profound place, and gave you advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of your mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you?
Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college.
Tuesdays With Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift to the world.
RATING - 3 1/2 STARS  - I Liked It
