Today is a momentous day It s my mom s birthday Through an utter coincidence, I happened to take this book up for reading a day before my mother s birthday, temporarily oblivious to the occasion Oh, how I love such coincidences They are little life affirming miracles, dismissed by reason as coincidences, for what were the chances of my walking into a friend s room in a different hostel on a hot afternoon on an impulse and ending up finishing this book, unaware of the relevance of the next day to [...]

I read this book when I was on a plane from London to Indonesia via Hongkong, and I cried like a baby all the way I swear, if the people that sat on my left and right hadnt been my friends, I would ve been considered a crazy girl weeping for no reason.Reading this book made me realize how much I ve taken my mum for granted It opened my eyes and showed me how big and everlasting a mother s love can be, despite all the things that s been done to her.Mummy, I LOVE YOU
For One More Day, like all of Mitch Albom s books, attempts to be an exercise in feel good warm fuzzies This overly verbose mortality tale, however, is not particularly inspiring, uplifting, or even interesting.When the main character tries to commit suicide, he gets to spend the titular one day with his deceased mother During the visit, he reminisces about his life growing up in a broken home, the mistakes he made, and how we would do it differently if he could Interspersed are example after e [...]
This is a beautiful and touching mother and son story that will make you reconsider how you treat your own mother.

It seems that for me Mitch Albom can do no wrong This is my fourth novel by him and I thought it was wonderful Albom seems to have an incredible ability to take ordinary situations and the inevitable pain of life and make them magical For One More Day focuses on Charles Chick Bennetto, a middle aged man with a failing marriage, obscene amounts of debt and an inner grief he s never gotten over He hits rock bottom when he is left uninvited to his only daughters wedding We watch as Chick tries to t [...]
Before saying anything else let me say, this book is for everyone For every age group No matter how old you are, must read recall your incidents, because we all have done such things with our mothers every child can relate with it This is a story of every mother every child This book literally gave me goosebumps Heart breaking but beautiful Truthful yet emotional Not any difficult phrase, not any lyrical lines but these simple, honest, amazingly written lines had such a profound effect on me, I [...]
Eh Not sure what the big deal is with this guy This book wasOK I cannot say that I liked it a great deal, nor can I say I detested it The author is a good storyteller, has a good command of structure and the craft of writing, and does not strike me as being anything less than the consummate professional Picasso was rumoured to have the ability to draw a perfect circle freehand the resulting line is not necessarily a great work of art.I suppose the nature of the material just was not something I [...]

Confession I actually DNF ed Tuesdays with Morrie sometime last year I thought it was pretentious, dull and lack narration So I wasn t exactly excited to read For One More Day, but someone gave it to me during last year s Secret Pumpkin Thank you again I m glad that this book was as enjoyable as it was Even though it s like a Hallmark cut out story I did catch a part of its telemovie on Hallmark a long time ago , but it s pure, simple and raw It doesn t attempt to do too much but gives out a lot [...]
Reading the back cover and realizing the backdrop is suicide, I was sorely disappointed by the lack of self face stabbings.Again, picking up this book, I thought to myself, suicide and Mitch Albom how could I go wrong But I was wrong snicker dead wrong From the beginning, Albom signifies his attachment to this book He is telling this story from notes and interviews he may have had with the main character Why is this important Could the book have been equally effective without him putting himself [...]
Very touching book Much of what the protagonist goes through is very close to my heart, and reading the last chapter made me teary I m not a parent, but I am a daughter, and reading this book has reminded me in a gentle and soothing way the sacrifices parents and caregivers make for their children Told in flashbacks and the chapters often around two to three pages long, the book was a quick read Despite the content material, I didn t feel emotionally burdened by the end but instead a little ligh [...]
I also believed that parents, if they love you, will hold you up safely, above their swirling waters, and sometimes that means youll never know what they endured, and you may treat them unkindly, in a way you otherwise wouldnt This book discuss the topic on parents and children and family and it is as heartbreaking as it gets I miss my parents brb calling home

What a beautiful story But she wasn t around, and that s the thing when your parents die, you feel like instead of going into every fight with backup, you are going into every fight alone If this book doesn t make you want to hug your mom, then I honestly don t know what will Chick s story is so powerful because of how honestly it portrays a mother child relationship Most of us have felt anger, embarrassment, and disappointment because of our mothers, and while that s normal, we sometimes forget [...]

Menyia nyiakan waktu itu sungguh memalukan Kita selalu berpikir kita punya terlalu banyak waktu Hidup begitu berharga Aku tak memiliki seorang pun yang bisa membujukku keluar dari keputusasaan, dan itu sebuah kesalahan Kau perlu memiliki orang di dekatmu Kau perlu memberi mereka jalan masuk ke hatimu.Tapi selalu ada cerita di balik semuanya Bagaimana sebuah lukisan bisa tergantung di dinding Bagaimana sebuah luka membekas di wajahmu Kadang ceritanya sederhana, dan kadang keras dan menghancurkan [...]
