Tuesday With Morrie

Another book by Mitch Albom, who also the author of the famous ‘Tuesday with Morrie’. I first came across this book when S bought it in MPH last year and he promised to borrow me after he finished. And it was soon all forgotten. A couple of weeks ago, we had an introduction section with our new product manager and he mentioned this book. I became curious about it and asked S and finally I got it~

 

It is rather a short book and very easy to read. It is about an old man who died in an accident at his workplace, a funfair and went to heaven. He was frustrated with his life as after the war, due to his family and circumstances and his bad leg, he didn’t do much in his life. He leads a very ordinary life as the maintenance man of the fun park and never got out of Ruby Pier to touch his dream. He repeated what his father did for a living, although he resented it.

 

In heaven, he met the 5 people who affected his life, which some he didn’t even aware. The message of the book was everyone’s life was interrelated whether or not they realized it. Everyone existence does matter and affect others. No one is an island and no one can be an island.

 

Below is an extracted paragraph from the book and it really got me :

Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.

 

And yeah, it is a quite a good book and worth reading~

  1. I’ll have to read that. Would you consider it easy to find?

    Have you read Wish List? or The Lovely Bones? they’re kind of about the afterlife, like that one seems to be..

    anyway, I”m going to get back to His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. They’re really good, too.
