Tuesdays with Morrie- Book Review

Tuesdays with Morrie

One of the best books that I have ever read comprising life’s most important lessons. I think a young adult must give a full read to this book to get a thought-provoking view. 

This is a small beautiful book which is divided into 27 parts. The chapters are concise and easy to read. Its simplicity has really inspired a lot, it’s straightaway written from the heart thus touches easily. 

Tuesdays With Morrie explores the interactions and aspects between the human experience of living and dying. A theme of personal supremacy appears for both characters: Morrie and Albom.

A wonderful book that lets you be as brave as Morris and how he dismissed all his regrets in life and dealt bravely with the present scenario with a happy mind. While reading the book, I was baffled by the idea of detaching myself from my emotions. Though in the end, I was a little heartbroken soon I recalled what Morris said that “If you hold back on the emotions – if you don’t allow yourself to go through them – you can never get to being detached, you’re too busy being afraid. You’re afraid of the pain, you’re afraid of the grief. You’re afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive right in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely. You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, ‘All right. I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.'”

The book has several other heart-touching quotes like this. This book made me feel how lucky I am to have everyone around me who has in any way helped and loved me. A feeling of gratitude developed in me. One of the greatest lessons this book has taught me is that our spirit dies earlier than our actual death. I had mixed emotions while reading; it made me weep, smile, but made me understand some amazing facts of life & human nature.

The book depicts a beautiful story, and I definitely recommend all of you to read it.
