Not really Ron! Female, mid 40's. Need a good audio book really helps me get things done around the house. My family is annoyed!
Such a beautiful insight from a very wise man. Much in this book to carry with you throughout life.
Tuesdays with Morrie was one of my favorite listens. Morrie's willingness to share his final times and Mitch's ability to
Tell us about yourself!
It makes you think about your mortality and how your life affects others.
I enjoyed listening about Morrie dancing.
Sometimes the books being read by the author is not always a good thing, but in this case Mitch Albom did a great job. The impact the story had on his life is translated well in his narration.
I listen to almost everything at 1 1/2 to 3 times the normal speed with the iPhone app. I cannot do this with all narrators, but I could easily do this with this audio book.
Yes - there are some great life lessons
I listened to this book while working on a painting and I loved it. It felt like Morrie was sitting with me and talking while I worked.
Someone asked me if the book is depressing because it involves conversations with a man who is dieing. Personally, I didn’t find it depressing at all. I equated it to Randy Pausch’s book The Last Lecture. Both books were written by people who were diagnosed with a terminal illness and both books have good lessons and good stories.
I'm an avid audio book "reader," especially while walking my dog. As a result, he is the best informed Standard Poodle in West Seattle.
Here the spoken word transcends.
I cringed at the blatant sentimentality of the opening pages. But as I read along, the story began to spin its magic--or, I should say, Morrie did. His philosophy of love, compassion, and forgiveness--cliched as it may seem--bears repeating and repeating and repeating.
Morrie, of course.
No, I wanted to stretch my vicarious friendship with Morrie for as long as possible. I listened over four or five days.
I think people hunger to hear what Morrie has to say (I sure do): "Take responsibility for each other. . . Love is the only rational act."
Everyone should read this book. I really enjoyed the story, very heartwarming indeed. If you are looking for a bit of hope, or some positive messages, Morries wisdom is sure to fill that need.
best book I've read in years. this book teaches life lessons about every aspect of life. it teaches us to look at our lives and question ourselves, "am I really living my life to the fullest?". this book had me in tears multiple times, and having it read by Mitch Albom himself made it so heartfelt.
