Erm i don't think i've ever made any review on books i've read before. But this book affects me a lot that i couldn't stop myself from sharing it with you people.
I used to read a book from the same author, Tuesdays with Morrie. Mitch Albom is the author. At the time my friend recommended Tuesdays with Morrie, that was when i already knew Mak was suffering from a cancer. This good friend of mine even emailed me the ebook version of Tuesdays with Morrie. Apparently that book is about Morrie who's dying and his student who came to visit him every Tuesday. I guess that friend of mine, he wanted me to be prepared. In a way. Nice friend he is.
So this time around, Mitch Albom again wrote a book of the dead. It is not a ghost story. It was about a son who got to spend a day with his mother who's already dead. Now you know why this book affects me so much.
It brings me a thought. If i were given a chance to spend a whole one day with my late mum, what would i do? What should we do? I know this is kinda nonsense and impossible you can never meet a person who has already long gone. But this book is no kidding. Mitch Albom has made me gone crazy in every way.
Know that there were so many times when our mothers stood up for us in so many ways but we have never reached to that much of times. This book caught me red-handed. Upon realizing that, i could never make them up - the times when i can stand up for Mak (again). And that hit me real hard. Real real hard.
That is why i wrote this review. I want you guys to have a taste of the bitterness i've been feeling inside. Let the book hit you harder than me. That way, you'll appreciate your mother even much. You'll please your parents even more. You'll stand up for them even more than they ever did to you in the past. Trust me.
How many stars? I'd give this book all the stars on the galaxy, no doubt. For its contents, moral value and lessons learnt. It's a book written by heart.
Have a good read! Xoxo
