Over at Sweet Little Pretties, I play along with the Sweet Little Things About Me meme each week. This week's topic is A Book I Would Recommend to Everybody. Now, I read A LOT, and I read about books I could be reading, and the book that seems to have the most recommendations because of the great effect it has on people is this one:
It doesn't look riveting, but it shares the conversations of a man and his former teacher, who is dying. It is quite difficult to read of the older man's deterioration, but it is a situation many people have or will experience in their lifetime - the loss of a loved one to an illness. While dying, Morrie shares his most important lessons about life, and makes you think of your own values. Are we living selfishly or selflessly?
Being a quick, easy read, I think most people would be able to read this book and gain much from it, or at least a little. It is heartfelt, and even heartwrenching, and you would have to be made of wood to not feel a greater sense of the purpose of life after reading this!
