Feature and Follow Friday

Q: Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book - and how did you react?

Oh dear, this is a hard question! I'm going to have to say that the last chapter of Tuesdays with Morrie (one of my all time favorite books!) is the most emotional scene I've ever read. Morrie is dying in this scene, and it's just really sad. I did tear up while reading this, and I also couldn't actually believe that what I was reading was true!  To give you all a little background on this true story, Mitch Albom is a student at Brandeis University, who is in Morrie Schwartz's sociology class. After graduation, Mitch promises Morrie that he'll keep in touch, but fails to do so for 16 years. Eventually, Mitch hears a story about Morrie dying of ALS on Nightline. He decides to go over to Morrie's house to visit, and eventually these visits are on Tuesdays. 


  1. Tuesdays with Morrie is one of those books I was supposed to have read like three times but still haven't. I've heard it's fabulous, though. :D Old follower here. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! ;D

  2. A Friend read that book and was telling me about it. I wanted to read it but I'm so scared I would be a complete mess :)

  3. I've heard of this and I want to say that this was a tv movie? or a tv show? something like that because I remember watching that last episode or whatever it was years ago :)

  7. It's really a sad book. The main character died and not to mention the broken promise for 16 years. Lucky me I have not read it yet so that's why my heart is still in one piece.

  17. I think when a story is true it makes it even more sad. :( It does sound like a good book.
