I have just finished a book given to me by a lovely family friend called Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
This book is a true story about a professor Morrie and his student Mitch who fate has them crossing paths 20 years after graduating and as Morrie is ill and preparing to die the student agrees to write a final book about the professor as he talks about life, death, regret, forgiveness, marriage and everything in between.
What this book lacked in the number of pages it made up for in the raw emotion of each page. I was on the verge of tears most of the way through, but in a good way it really made me think about life and how we live each day. This is a really magical book written in such a way that you wish you had met Morrie yourself he sounds like an amazing person.
I would recommend this book to everyone - it is a must read and will make you stop and smell the roses in life. I give this book 5 stars.
