Rated of 5
by A.J. Hill
This book's great popularity may depend partly upon its sophomoric and simplistic approach to difficult philosophical questions. "Tuesdays with Morrie" is "easy reading" in its most extreme form. If that isn't enough to turn off the discerning reader, the writing is too often treacly and sentimental. Yet, all of these faults might be forgiven, if the author had anything truly original to say about living (and dying) but he doesn't. If you're in the market for mawkish bromides that have been repackaged and outfitted with a tear-jerker story line, this book may be for you. Otherwise stay away.
