A great book that reminds you what important in life
After I read this book I was baffled. I immediately called my mother and told her that I loved her and gave her a big hug. When you are a kid you appreciate all of the little things that you mother does for you like cutting the crust off your sandwich or adding an extra fruit-roll-up in your lunch. But as the teenage years arrive you start forgetting about your parents altogether and stop appreciating and start taking for granted all of the little things that your' parents did when you were younger let alone the major things. Many times its not until it's too late that you truly appreciate your parents. Luckily this book reminds readers to love their parents and spend as much time with them as possible because you never know when their time might come. The story structure was very well organized and flowed very well. It was generally an easy read but delivered a powerful message. The story starts with a man who has lost it all and how he tries to kill himself but instead he gets to spend one more day to see his dead mother and how he regrets not being as close to her as he would have liked to. I believe it was a good way to start because I believe that many people feel or have felt at one point as low as Charlie and feel like that the only escape is by suicide. This book reminds us what is truly important in life and why it is worth fighting for. I believe that this book could help many teenagers especially to appreciate both of their parents and spend as much time as possible with them because they are not there forever. All in all a very well written book and an ever better message. -Alex LopezWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Great book but not as close as his others
I have read both the Five People you Meet in Heaven and Tuesdays with Morrie and both are Outstanding books. This book is awesome as well but I enjoyed the other two much better. This book does make you think about your family and I could relate since it reminded me of my mother. Not a long book, goes by fast and a great read.Was this review helpful?
