that came to his mind was Morrie. After the report Mitch visited Morrie many times until his death. Even after Morrie’ s death Mitch grew to think like his deceased friend, and continued Morrie’ s way of being.
My opinion about this book is that it was a well written book that talks about many problems that people may never face in their lives but, still manage to wonder if they could ever occur to them. It has good advice about how people should try to live their lives and life would be more enjoyed and understood more. Not just that but just generally the book has a good point to what it is about. It makes you think and wonder whether you’re doing something wrong that makes you have such a “lousy” life. And Morrie who’d dieing still manages to enjoy life to the fullest.
