Overall, I liked this book. Morrie sounds like he was an amazing person. His words were beautiful.
But for me Albom's descriptions just weren't up to par with Morrie's inspirational words. Morrie's aphorisms were wonderful, but the rest off the book was pretty plain, simple, and a little dry. I think it was hard for Albom to write on such a personal relationship from real life and it really showed through. While at times he showed emotion and connection most of the time the descriptions felt distant and removed. This wasn't as good as I was expecting.
