tuesdays with morrie book report


The title refers to the principal character and the setting or the period of the story. The title of the story is made by Mitch Albom and that was approved by Morrie. This book is their last thesis together. Tuesdays is the days when Mitch would take the plane to visit his coach or old professor, Morrie. Tuesday is the day when Morrie and Mitch talk peacefully about topics of life and how to face death. Morrie loves giving Mitch lessons. He was the coach and Mitch is the player. The teaching goes on every week. It is the last class of the old professor and Mitch is the student. It is all about the Meaning of life.

III. Theme

The novel is based on the human experiences and the problems in life that we always encounter. It is all about life and how to approach the trials every now and then. This book is full of advices on many kinds of life topics but the main idea of this book is how to manage death and how to deal with it. This book is saying the immoral approach of the people towards the trials of God and the situations that are unexpected. The basic conflict or the struggle around the story is the wrong approach of the people towards death and their approaches on topics like fear, aging, greed, marriage, family, society, forgiveness and a meaningful life. Like people don’t know that the most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love and to let it come in. Or like people don’t know how to trust other people but they want them to trust him/her. Or like not knowing that we should forgive our self first then forgive others. Or like wanting more than what we have that results to envy. Or giving so much importance to money that is not really needed after our death. Or the wicked marriage of the young ones that results to non harmonious situations. Or not knowing that death ends a life but not a relationship. The conflict of Morrie and Mitch is both internal and external and so as the conflicts of the people as they handle life.
