Reading this book made me realize how much I've taken my mum for granted. It opened my eyes and showed me how big and everlasting a mother's love can be, despite all the things that's been done to her.
Mummy, I LOVE YOU!!!!
"Baca deh, Squid, bukunya baguss.. bikin nangis.."
Aku nggak pernah baca bukunya Mitch Albom sebelumnya, dan ketika Qui merekomendasikan buku ini ketika jalan-jalan di RB menjelang tahun baru kemarin dengan ekspresi mengharukan.
Akhirnya setelah sekian lama dalam tumpukan to-read aku sambar juga untuk dibaca dalam perjalanan pulang. Benar apa yang dikatakannya, sepanjang perjalanan di KRL rasanya dadaku sesak dan mata berkaca-kaca.

Again, picking up this book, I thought to myself, suicide and Mitch Albom... how could I go wrong? But I was wrong (snicker) dead wrong.
From the beginning, Albom signifies his attachment to this book. He is telling this story from notes and interviews he may have had with the main character. Why is this important? Could the book have been equally effective without him putti ...more
Told in flashbacks and the chapters often around two to three pages long, the book was a quick read. Despite the content material, I didn't feel emotionally burdened by the end but instead a little ...more

A child can never be complete without the love and care of his/her mother and the guidance of his/her father.
This is a one-of-a-kind novel that reminds us how precious the little time we all have and how more valuable time with our family is much more important. Cherish the moments before they're gone.
The story started with Chick Benetto's struggles with his wife and daughter about 8 years after his mother, Paul ...more

One thing I realized from this book is how a mother's love can be the purest form of love there is. I realized that no matter how you feel that you are often misunderstood by your mom, she is the person who, of all persons, can understand you no matter what happens.
I also learned about the sacrifices that they make just ...more

I finished this book on my mother's 56th birthday, with a burst into tears,and I'm like running to her, hug her and told her that I love her. Charley's story are almost same like mine. Almost same. We had one great mom that their Principe is, what's the matter? I'm a mother. This is the books that made me wet the eyes in th train, this is the book that made me felt the purest love of mother.

Albom pays tribute to mothers with the story of Charley "Chick" Benetto, who remembers clearly the words his father told him as a young boy: "You can be a mama's boy or a daddy's boy. But you can't be both."
For most of his life, Chi ...more

Es entonces cuando ve en su suicidio la única salvación posible para descansar de todo....y ahí,entre el umbral de la vida y la muerte, que se reencuentra con el fantasma de ella y pa ...more
I gotta say I was so disappointed in Charley as if I knew him. I could not understand how he could respect his Father, who ran out on him, so much more than his Mother, the one who saw to his well being, struggled and fought and worked hard so he would be taken care of, attend col ...more
I remember the times that my mom stood up for me, and the time I did not stood up for my mom. this book really makes me guilty. It made me cry.. Because of this book, I want to correct my mistakes and say sorry to the things that I've done to my mom or my dad.
I recommend this book to everyone, It is inspiring and it will make you realize something and It's one book that ...more
Confession: Tuesdays. . . and, well, life. For One More Day came to me, or I came to it -- at the right time in my life. I wanted reading it to be worth my time. And it was. Appreciated the material AND the arrangement of the material.
I love Tuesdays with Morrie by the same author. I have also read The Five People You Meet in Heaven but can't remember what I thought of it, it's been too long.
Well, going by the blurb, I thought I needed this book right now. To spend a day with a loved one you have lost, such an interesting premise. But even though this book didn't handle the subject as I thought it would, it did make for a good read nevertheless.
It has been a while since I have become more...more
For One More Day
Being a bereaved mother, the title spoke to me in volumes. Without reading anything more than those four words, I knew I wanted to read the book. And I didn’t read the blurb or the inside cover, I just borrowed the book and brought it home with me. And my gut instinct was right.
A day or so l ...more
I never knew until I finished the book that it was a true story. You'll definitely walk away from this book thinking!
Here's a great synopsis of the book from Amazon.com: Chick Benetto has hit rock bottom---divorced, alcoholic, has-been baseball player, and now comes the ultimate sl ...more
I end up choosing this piece of work by Mitch Albom, and throughout the course we got to practice our criticism techniques with the book which made me re-read it all over again, and boy..... i fell in love with it all over again, it's like i hadn't read it. All the emotions and sorrows that the book held brushed over m ...more
