5.0 out of 5 stars One of 2006's most inspiring reads, November 7, 2006
This review is from: For One More Day (Hardcover)
Albom, who previously grabbed us by our hearts in "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven", does it again in "For One More Day". Masterfully playing with time (moving back and forth between the story's present time and the character's past), surprising the reader along the way and tactfully relating to emotions most of us are bound to experience at some point in our lives, he tells the tale of Charley Benetto, a retired baseball player left to rot outside the sport of his dreams, and his one-day reunion with his mom... who had passed away years before.

The book doesn't score as high as "Tuesdays with Morrie", arguably Albom's best, but it does match his accomplishment with "The Five People..." by forcing us to contemplate our lives from the standpoint of forks in the road, what ifs, the choices we make in life and the consequences they carry along. In doing so Albom earns the book a solid five stars and my personal recommendation as one of 2006's most inspiring reads.
