A student at East Rockingham High School, she is a freshman, who loves writing, reading, the outdoors, and poetry.
I encourage someone to read this book because of the main character, Morrie. Morrie is an older sociology professor. He is known for his kind heart and free spirit. Morrie encourages his students to think for themselves, maintain an open mind, and appreciate every moment of every day. In Morrie’s later years, he contracts a disease that is considered terminal, and he is forced to retire. Morrie is known for his radical dancing, where he flails his body uncontrollably with his eyes closed. When the disease infects, he can no longer dance. Throughout the book, Morrie almost becomes a friend with death, and uses the usual fear associated with death as an opportunity to teach the world how to appreciate life more.
I enjoyed this book because it encourages an open mind toward living life. Morrie constantly promotes peace. He speaks of how everyone just desires to be loved and accepted, and this gives everyone an automatic similarity. He encourages his main student, Mitch, to slow down and appreciate the people involved in his life. He states that relationship in love is the only thing that lasts beyond the finality of death. The perspectives in this book are extremely beautiful, and thought provoking.
I appreciated this book because of the style it is written in. The writer uses advanced vocabulary in a conversational manner. Every scene of the book is described with eloquence, and gives vivid imagery. Every character has his own distinct tone of dialogue. Throughout the book, Morrie’s tone is soft, confident, gentle, and understanding. Meanwhile, Mitch’s tone begins rather cold and stubborn, but transforms into a more curious and warm persona. The clear vision of each character’s presence creates a sort of familiarity between them and the reader.
Morrie Schwartz was more effective with his life under the grasps of death, than most humans are throughout their entire lives. In the book, Morrie Schwartz was quoted saying “ The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” The love of Morrie Schwartz lives in the lines of this book. He died simply, and he lived simply. This is something so beautiful that is constantly taken for granted. The book Tuesdays With Morrie is a necessary read for anyone who wishes to affect the world, or simply appreciate life more.
