Hope you are having a wonderful time. Today I’m here to talk about a pearl I’ve found amongst all the literary pieces in the world. Honestly, I would seriously not be simply reviewing a book but will be talking about the way it amazed me.
“Have you ever really had a teacher? One who saw you as a raw but precious thing, a jewel that, with wisdom, could be polished to a proud shine? If you are lucky enough to find your way to such teachers, you will always find your way back. Sometimes it is only in your head. Sometimes it is right alongside their beds.“
Key highlights of the book:
The book cover-
The book cover displays name of the book and author name with a simple cover design done by Clair Vaccaro. The fonts and the impressive style focus on the title do the talking for itself.
Tuesdays with Morrie sums up the concept of living on Earth in entirety. The main characters that the book is focused on are Professor Morrie and his student Mitch.
The book is a tribute from a student to world’s greatest teacher and a selfless endeavor to reach out to people all over the world who really need crucial life lessons. The beauty is that it is based on an extraordinary true relationship story. The classroom sessions between Professor and Mitch at his home, when the Professor is fighting battle for his life, cover a range of topics of worldly life aspects like regrets, family, emotions, marriage, fear of aging, money, forgiveness and a final goodbye. The Professor imparts his wisdom by quoting examples and experiences from his personal life. And the way Mitch introspects the same by reliving his experiences encases a whole other level of learning in itself.
“The last class of my old professor’s life took place once a week, in his home, by a window in his study where he could watch a small hibiscus plant shed its pink flowers. The class met on Tuesdays. No books were required. The subject was the meaning of life. It was taught from experience.
The teaching goes on.“
It truly is a small bundle of joy that brings you back to the reality of life with such a positive mind frame.
When characteristics of a book are being talked about, I guess very few books are such treasures where the book itself is so complete in all aspects!
1. The concept:
The concept of Tuesdays with Morrie is such a refreshing feel to anybody who has once been a student.
2. The expression:
The author has beautifully engrossed all the expressions that are portrayed alongside nicely woven words. This book has the power to make a reader feel the real emotion behind the text.
3. Story build up:
There are so many self help books in market that focus on vital learning but just tend to stick to it which sometimes tends to make you feel as if you are in a lecture! On the other hand, this little wonder book, even though with a setting of a classroom with a Professor and a student, has left no stone unturned to make a reader imbibe the major learning without the impression of being in a lecture.
One true flaw I felt while finishing up with this book was that it was a real short lived read. I wanted to keep reading it. Probably it is a true emotion that a good book brings out of you.
Book in a line- A mini version of a good vibe and a perfect gift to any individual, friend or family.
A special note of Thanks- This book was a gift to me by a very special friend of mine who recommended it to me and if you’re reading this.. Yes you- then you must know I’m so grateful to have you in my life. Thank you for bringing this piece of art in my literary collection for forever!♥️
