Tuesdays with Morrie

July 8, 2014


Reading is an active skill where we gain knowledge and absolute understanding after which. I am encouraging everyone to read English books. It will help us hone our communicative competency of the language. Blessed are those who read good books.

As of the moment I am reading a good book written by Mitch Albom. Here is the synopsis of the novel:

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

Maybe it was a grandparent, a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and impassioned, helped you to see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to guide your way through it. For Mitch Albom, it was Morrie Schwartz, the college professor who taught him nearly twenty years ago.

Perhaps, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as the years passed, the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, to ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, and receive wisdom for your busy life the way you once did when you were younger?

Mitch Albom got that second chance, rediscovering Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final 'class: lessons in how to live. Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together.

P.S. This is a verbatim copy of synopsis from the novel. My novel review about Tuesdays with Morrie will follow after I read the novel.
