Before I heard about this book, I never read, unless I had too. All I read was the Newspaper, and magazines. Then I saw this book. I was simply stunned about how Mitch Albom tells the story of himself and Morrie. I can't really base this review on comparison with other books because I haven't read lots of other books. This book is simply amazing, I found my self reading during classes, at work, and any time I could. When I didn't have it in my hand, I would wait untill the next break to read it again. I recommend this book for a reader who has just started or is regular reader.
