This is a poignant story of a student and his professor's last class before he leaves the plane of the living.Mitch Albom, the author of this highly acclaimed book is the student and his professor, Morrie Schwartz who have taught him nearly 20 years before in college have reconnected before the ageing and terminally ill professor dies.
Each Tuesday, they convene and have discussions on life's great surprises. Their re-connection turned out to be the "final class" of Mitch on lessons in how to live.
This is such a wonderful book, a chronicle of the great time a student and his old professor has and the discussions they have on life and death, on living and dying.
I do recommend this book. It is not a thick paper-bound book, just around 210 pages with great lessons in life to learn.
I love this book and I just cannot help and be touched by what Professor Morrie had shared to this author.
It is a life-changing book I will definitely recommend to everyone.
Update On Jul 15, 2009: I have finished reading the book and I must say, I am more wiser. I love the book. It is enlightening. Makes you appreciate all the wonders of life and how you should view death as it comes. I truly recommend this book to all book-lovers out there. Believe me, you will never be the same person again when you finish this book. Wonderful!
