One of the most deeply moving books I have read. Infact, I have read it numerous times. To my mother, my dear friend who is legally blind,have given it as gifts to friends. I have seen the DVD, and watched a live theatrical performance. Need I say more. Mitch Album's wonderful narrative make for an easy yet touching read.If this book doesn't touch you deeply......I don't know what will.

P.S . This book will be more appealing to mature readers. Young readers (like my teenage son) may not really appreciate some of 'Life's Lessons' discussed in the novel since they are yet to experience the multiple facets of life.

Everyone needs to read a book like this at least once in their life. It truly makes you look at the world just a bit differently. The book is very well written and easy-to-read for the beginner and the story is unforgettable!

This book has received a lot of positive reviews over the years from the book-reading community. My personal view is that it may be slighly over-accredited. The book will however inspire you to think about life !!
Mitch Albom shared with us his real life lesson from his old college teacher Morrie (the 'Coach' as he called him), who was dying of ALS disease. In his so-called fourteen-week of lessons, Albom was enlightened and inspired by Morrie about "the meaning of life". Topics like Death, Family, Emotions, Money, Marriage, Culture, Forgiveness were covered.
I feel like Mitch Albom didn't put much time and efforts in writing this book. He just finished this as a project which he promised and felt obliged to Morrie. The depth of content is shallow, even it covers pretty lofty topics. Many of the pages are spent talking about Morrie's getting-worst-every-week dying conditions, while only a small fraction of the paragraphs are used to describe Morrie's conversations and his 'teachings' to him.
The structure of the book is also quite loose. Flashback memories written in between chapters are confusing sometimes, and look like they're just to fill up pages. Some of these 'interlude' paragraphs don't really have much relationship with what was written in the previous chapters.
The intention of the author, though, is still good. It could well be a good introductory book for teen or young readers. As for me, who is approaching 50 years of age in two years, this book seems to be too elementary with the depth it covers.
Now, tell me what you think....

I ordered this copy to replace one which I previously had, but obviously loaned out and did not receive it back. I really enjoy Mitch Albom's writing. This book is a "must have" if you are to have anything by Mitch.

An absolutely fabulously written eye opener for any/all to read, especially today. It's amazing/refreshing how the people we meet daily can bear such significance to the real meaning of life's most precious gift- LOVE. That's why I'm happy to have taken the time to stop and enjoy this book. Live funerals should be a way of life, which is too short....no sense in mourning the could-have should-have-said-moments, when the decedent can't hear one's kindness and love. My Mom recommended this book to me and I must pass it on to others. Great work, Mitch Albom, when it's genuine and you weren't even trying to impress so many readers with your unique and absolutely refreshing style. Keep it real always!

A must read for young and old alike. If you only read one book, pick this one. You won't go wrong with it.

Once in awhile I read a book that I know will stay with me for the rest of my life. This is one of those books. I related to Mitch's character in the way that we all have great intentions in life but sometimes we fall a little short. Mitch told his professor (Morrie) he would stay in touch with him after graduation but he never did. Years later they re-connect once Morrie is diagnosed with ALS. Once Mitch begins regular visits with Morrie, it's like no time has passed at all. The reader has a bedside view of what life was like for Morrie in his struggles with the terminal illness he was struck with. Through the descriptions of each visit Mitch and Morrie have, we can see how Morrie's illness is affecting his physical being and even though it's robbing him of his life as he has always known it, it can't touch his abominable spirit. This is what makes the biggest impression on Mitch and by the end of the book, Mitch is truly a changed man. Morrie Schwartz was a very special man and I felt honoured to read about his life and his last days. Keep a tissue handy, when Morrie passes on, the tears will flow.
