2.For One more Day
The book's theme is mortality: it analyzes how people might react to the chance to have a dead relative back for a day.Love this book so much.
“Every family is a ghost story . . .”
From Mitch Albom Website:
Mitch Albom mesmerized readers around the world with his number one New York Times bestsellers, The Five People You Meet in Heaven and Tuesdays with Morrie. Now he returns with a beautiful, haunting novel about the family we love and the chances we miss. For One More Day is the story of a mother and a son, and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond. It explores the question: What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one? As a child, Charley “Chick” Benetto was told by his father, “You can be a mama’s boy or a daddy’s boy, but you can’t be both.” So he chooses his father, only to see the man disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence. Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been crumbled by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. He hits bottom after discovering his only daughter has shut him out of her wedding. And he decides to take his own life. He makes a midnight ride to his small hometown, with plans to do himself in. But upon failing even to do that, he staggers back to his old house, only to make an astonishing discovery. His mother -- who died eight years earlier -- is still living there, and welcomes him home as if nothing ever happened.
Albom has said his relationship with his own mother was largely behind the story of the book, and that several incidents in “For One More Day” are actual events from his childhood.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven is a novel by Mitch Albom. It recounts the life and death of an old maintenance man named Eddie. After dying in an accident, Eddie finds himself in the five heavens of the five people he will meet in heaven, where he encounters five people who have significantly affected his life, whether he realized at the time or not. Mitch Albom dedicates the book to his uncle Edward Beitchman. He says that he wants people like his uncle who felt unimportant during their lives to realize how much they mattered and how they were loved.
Aku memang lembab sikit,buku yang di publish bertahun lepas aku baru terhegeh nak baca biarpun orang lain dah baca seribu kali.Kan aku ni ketinggalan keretapi..
The best of all my favourite For One More Day.Bahasa yang simple dan menusuk jiwa.Bolehlah orang yang tak berapa reti advance english ni baca dengan penuh penghayatan.Really admirer the mother though.
Buku ni best sangat,tak boring.Aku siap baca sambil ketawa sorang-sorang semasa dalam kursus.
Bole cilok baca sebab tak sabar sangat nak baca sampai habis.
Buku ni best,awesome dan kelakar.Tapi mungkin ada sedikit persamaan teknik penceritaaa ala-ala Bridget Jones Diary.
Kisah Balkis yang transform dari 'ugly duckling' ke gracefully swan setelah mengenali hero kaya dan hensem.Balkis seorang pelajar Universiti yang mengambil jurusan psikologi,yang jadi bahan usikan pelajar kampus.
Mula baca memang rasa tipikal story tapi actually in the end ia tak seperti yang dibayangkan.
Buku ni kalau diterbitkan dalam bahasa inggeris pun boleh meletup dan dibanggakan.
