Tuesdays with Morrie

It takes a lot for either a movie or a book to tug at my heartstrings. But a few manage to do so. Case in point, Tuesdays with Morrie successfully hit me in a soft spot.

When Mitch Albom learns that his college professor Morrie Schwartz is dying of ALS, he decides to catch up on lost time. In Morrie's final days, Mitch learns life lessons from his old teacher.

A few books managed to pull my heartstrings (Flowers for Algernon, The Reader), but not in the same way Tuesdays with Morrie did. As the novel progressed, it gets more heartfelt and sorrowful. I just love this book and recommend it to everyone.

My Rating: *****
