Tuesdays with Morrie- The book I fell in love with…

Posted on Updated on




This book holds a sentimental value for me, I don’t know for what exact reason but it has some kind of purity, it has the words coming out of a beautiful soul. I don’t know Morrie personally but I feel as if I know him completely, as if he is a part of me now. He is speaking with such sincerity and optimism right there on his deathbed, trying to be close to as many people as possible. He just wants to take as much possible by giving more than he could have in such a state. A person full of love, so much love and tenderness. Each and every touch is so important for him, each and every little thing makes him so superfluously happy. He was thoroughly a people’s person. A person for the people more likely.

I sometimes wish to know him personally, sit with him like Mitch and just talk, talk about everything that I’ve in me, its plain stupid but then that’s how it is.

The cover of this book is exceptionally ordinary, with a maroon border and pale yellow skin. In stark contrast with what is presented inside.It reflects a very unusual overwhelming student teacher relationship reminding us of some special things we have learnt from our educational institutions that would never escape our minds. By the end, the reader is certain of Morrieโ€™s death, and it obviously evokes many emotions. The story is made all the more special with the lessons that the dying man teaches the author and from the chapters of his own experiences.

It is that book which will stay with you for life! It will be that book which you will mark with markers and pencils, just to read the beautiful words by a beautiful man again and again. โค

    Wow! You know what Preeti, I feel so happy whenever one mentions this book as his/her favorite book. Don’t know why but I feel happy to know that there exists people with similar interests, emotions, likings and thinking. I believe a person’s book shelf reflects his/her character too to some extent. I am glad that you picked this book up and loved it. This book is at the top in my favorite book list since I have read it. Kudos! Cheers!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

      I totally get what you mean…people with same book interests as mine are my favourite ๐Ÿ˜› we just naturally gel up with them and we always have something or the other to talk about.
      And I couldn’t be more glad that I took up Morrie to read, one of the best decision ever ๐Ÿ˜€

      The book doesn’t have anything new, just the basic philosophy of life, which we all know somewhere. Its just the simplicity of it which took me to a different horizon all together. I dont even know if I make sense ๐Ÿ˜›
