Tuesdays with Morrie is a memoir written by Mitch Albom that talks about the life and death of his professor and friend Morrie Schwartz. Although the organization was different, I enjoyed how I had to really get into the reading to get the most out of it. I like the way Mitch Albom incorporated so many of Morrie’s quotes into the story, like on page 157 where Morrie said “Invest in the human family. Invest in people. Build a little community of those you love and who love you.” Adding these quotes made you feel as though you were in the story, or in the background watching what was happening. I enjoyed this aspect of Mitch’s writing. I believe the main theme of this book was not only to remember the life of Morrie, but to also stop us from wasting our lives doing the wrong things. Mitch wants us to live our life as if every day is our last. He wants us to spend time with those that matter, those that we love. He wants to tell our society that material things don’t matter. I think our society could incorporate those things into our everyday lifestyle. We can do this by not spending so much time at work, and taking the time out of our day to show those close to us that we love them. This message is very important to today’s society, and we would be a better place if we incorporated this into our lives. I would recommend this inspirational story to all that love to read. It is a very easy book, and will change the way you look at your life.
