Tuesdays with Morrie

By Mitch Albom

Reviewed by Katerin Q., BCCHS student

Tuesdays with Morrie is an incredible book that teaches one great lessons. There is a man named Mitch that used to be a student at the college that Morrie worked at. Mitch mentions how when he was young, he believed he could do anything. He thought his life was going to turn out to be perfect and that money was not going to be his great concern. As he is now an adult, he’s realized that money has become a big part of his life. He is now a man that lives his life concerned about what he has even though it’s not what he wishes to have.

He finds his professor by watching a show on television. At first, it’s weird to him to talk to his old professor due to the fact that they lost contact after college. Mitch feels it’s his fault. Every Tuesday, Mitch visits Morrie and learns something about life. Mitch finds it really amazing how Morrie, being a man who has a deadly disease, mentions how happy he is about his life and how he always enjoys it to the fullest. Morrie is a really special being that teaches one so much. For example, how people learn to live once they accept death.
