5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute 'Must read' book, 6 Feb. 2008
This review is from: For One More Day (Paperback)
When I read 'Five People you meet in Heaven' I was moved, almost to the point of tears. I can remember thinking that, if I saw another book by this author, I would buy it; and so, as soon as I saw 'For One More Day', I knew I had to get it. For some reason, it sat on the pile for a couple of weeks - what a mistake! On opening it, I was totally engrossed - in fact, I literally could not put it down! Since then, I have already re-read it once, and it is one book that will NOT be going to the next book sale!

To begin with, the concept is one which will appeal to all those of us who have lost a loved one - particularly to those of us who have lost a parent. how many of us would refuse the offer to spend one more day with them? How much would we learn from such an experience, particularly with the knowledge that it really is 'Just one more day' - a never to be repeated experience.

This book focuses on the life of a man who is so 'down'that he tries to commit suicide - only to find himself 'travelling back' and spending one more day getting to know his mother - on a totally different level; and through this is able to come to terms with his own life, becoming more able to cope.

It is very cleverly written, with intriguing twists and turns in the plot which keep you guessing right to the end. It is also extremely thought provoking, causing you to reflect on your own relationships and regrets.

Try it - I'm sure this is not a book that you will ever regret reading.

Mitch Albom is an amazing author, his books give such a raw insight into human life and the importance of the human nature. He has such a natural and easy way of describing how we all function and a true and awe inspiring way of touching the soul. As a Christian who whole heartedly believes in heaven Mitch reinforces the purpose of why we are all here and warms the heart, reinforcing the need and purpose of human values and the importance of treasuring family and friends every day.
