Tuesdays With Morrie was an incredible, heartwarming story of a man's final journey. The author Mitch Albom created a novel that not only gave a very vivid description of what can happen when two old friend reunite, but also gave a look into the life into brilliant man's mind. One of the best part of this novel was the way that Morrie looked at life. He believed that it is necessary to love others to live life. This novel really made me think about a lot of the things that Morrie said. He had such a positive outlook about absolutely everything that he did. Mitch Albom did a fantastic job in the description of such an amazing character's life. I fully recommend this novel for anyone who is looking to find a book that they can't put down.
