We were supposed to assess the events in the plot and the bonds between the people written. I think that we should be doing more with this book. I know I will never be the same after reading this extraordinary piece of literature, and I wish that they would talk more of it. The way that they are having us examine the book, takes away what we have been taught from it. I think that this should be required by every high school student to read, but we should be allowed to examine it by ourselves without lesson plans, and I think this is why not many teachers require us to read it. The meaning of the book gets lost when someone else explains it to you.(less)

I have decided to delete this review. It was not my intention to upset anyone who either suffered from the disorder discussed in this book nor anyone related to such a person (See comment 270).

Nonetheless, I still believe this to be a particularly poorly written book that contains more saccharine than substance.

Still, if it brings you some sense of comfort - more strength to you.

I have chosen not to delete the comments thread as not all of the comments are mine to delete.

If I were to die unexpectedly I wouldn’t be ashamed in the least of someone finding my porn stash. And by the way, that video isn’t bestiality, it’s just two guys in a moose suit—big difference. I would be a little ashamed of the fact that I have the first season of 90210 on my iPod, something I downloaded for a friend’s 14 year old daughter (note to self: delete it now!).

I have never written a review like this before but this book truly inspired me.

So I just finished reading "Tuesdays With Morrie". What a wonderful book, I couldn't put it down! I cannot even imagine going through the last stages of my own life and being as brave (for lack of a better word in my head right now) as Morrie. He was filled with such happiness and joy in his own life. He had regrets but realized that it is ok as long as you can reconcile with yourself in the end. I'm not the type of p

This is one of those books where I find myself agreeing with the five star reviews and the one star reviews with almost equal enthusiasm.

On one hand, it's the sweet story of a man as he reconnects with a former mentor/professor, who is facing a death sentence via ALS. It's obvious that Albom's "Tuesdays with Morrie" provided them both with something substantially satisfying. And that's inspiring and poignant.

Yet on the other hand, Albom's attempts to enlighten us transforms it into a "Hallmark"

Review inspired by Eddie Greenwell

Wisdom grows with age. But the development of wisdom also accelerates when mortality becomes clear. Mortality shined down on Morrie Schwartz, a happy not-quite-old man through a quick diagnosis of ALS – or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Morrie was a professor of sociology at Brandeis University; he dedicated his life to the study of individuals’ actions in their respective societies and together he and Mitch Albom wrote his final paper: a study of his life in his society

I'd heard raves about "Tuesdays with Morrie," so I was went into this with high hopes due to hype,and this book delivered and enchanted me. It is truly a book about teaching and teachable moments. A book for anyone that is looking for something that can help him or her through life when it gets hard. "Tuesdays with Morrie" starts off as a teacher who watches his student, Mitch Albom, go through college and then later in life Mitch experiences this same teacher (or Coach, Morrie) struggle with a ...more

I'm ashamed to own that I've read this. All I can say is: I did it for a good cause. That is, to promote reading in general (for a library talk).

Mawkishly sentimental (here I am, trying to wipe off the stale stench of yesterday's coffee mornings) and terribly trite.

Any person leaning to the left should, or would, recognise what Mitch is talking about. It isn't that Morrie is talking shit. He isn't. However, I think it's terribly ironic that such a venture (it screams "self-help" and "it will t

Tuesday with Morrie
Well this book is:
Simple yet compelling,
Quick read yet thought-provoking,
Saddening yet heartening,
Short yet long lasting.

Not reviewing this book critically, this is perfect and complete in the style, it's written.
Truly inspirational real life story of Professor Morrie Schwartz albeit carrying a life changing message for all.
Precisely this book has something for everyone.
A must read.

Tuesdays with Morrie is about death, but what we learn about is much more than the loss of dying but it is about love and friendship. Mitch Albom met with his dying mentor once a week and rediscovered in his last months a person he had lost contact with. This is a tale of life, even if we have to die.

For those dealing with any kind of loss, I recommend Tuesdays with Morrie, a story of someone that was able to deal relatively well with the devastation of ALS. When I read it, I had just lost my f

Honestly, i didn’t expect it to be this good. Turns out It touches my heart.
While reading, It’s like you’re sitting, listening and learning from Morrie as well.

Tuesdays with Morrie is like a reality TV show in that the characters and conversations are biographical; the conversations with Morrie were recorded. In the book, a student accidentally learns that his favorite professor is dying (16 years after graduating college) from ALS. Because dying from ALS is protracted, Morrie gets to philosophize about living, and the student is once again a student. We become Morrie's students too. This time the course is not sociology but life itself.

Of all the glorious books out there my school could have picked for ninth grade literature class...

In the words of Marcus Aurelius, "Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else." That’s one significant message Mitch Albom tries to convey to us readers in this emotional ride. ‘Tries’ not quite being the key word, but even so, eliciting only limited success. More on that later ahead. Tuesdays With Morrie depicts the moving relationship between the author and his former pro

Okay. I've been familiar with this book ever since my high school days. This title was kind of popular so almost everyone wanted to read this. Unfortunately, during those times of buying, borrowing, and talking about Tuesdays with Morrie, I was the odd one who didn't like reading rising-to-fame/talk-of-the-town books. IDK, I guess it was a culture I personally developed. Don't ever ask me the magic word 'why' coz honestly, even I had no idea. Anyways, that was before. Just leave the past behind ...more

The novel Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom is a must read. This book is amazing from start to finish. I loved how he used foreshadowing to make the reader knew what he meant. This book had many themes for all the thematic statements (Loss, Physical Affection, Greed, compassion, and Modesty). For example, you get stronger from every loss. Mitch lost his friend Morrie and he went on to write a book about him.

The quality of this story was outstanding. At parts it was very emotionable. For examp

It was raw, thought provoking, heart breaking and real.
Such a simple concept, a young man caught up in his busyness and business, competing to be the best in his job finds out that his old college professor is sick. And so begins a tale of regular meetings between Mitch and his old professor - Morrie.

More of a 3.5, really.

I'll start by saying that my one real issue with this book was that there wasn't much terribly original thinking within it. I definitely wanted more of a 'Wow, I never thought about it that way' feeling from Morrie's philosophies, and while it's hard to argue with anything he says it didn't feel like anything I hadn't heard from somewhere else before. Something probably by Disney.
In general, the book is well done. I liked the characters and found the story and the language
