Mitch Albom’s book “For one more day” is so ordinary (hardcover only available at RM69 but my son bought it, so must be good) that anyone who read it cannot be blamed for thinking “I could write that book”. STOP! dont think further. He has a way with his words, like “The dead sits at our table long before they are gone”. Now that sounds like a ghost story. Reminded me of my grandpa before he passed away. He saw “ho hier ti” meaning those departed soul of his relatives, ministring to him by his bedsite a few nights before he passed on.
This book begins with :This is a story about a family…..
Every family has a ghost story…
The young boy, Chuck or Chick was asked to make a choice from young “Are you a mama’s boy or papa’s boy? Quess what he chose? He made a bad choice. For all his guilt, wrong doings and weaknesses he decided to take his own life. Between his touch and go he got one more day to connect with his departed mama…..And that straigtens him up.
The couple over her in Malaysia who decided to end their life and their 3 sons should have read this book. Their 3 sons are dead but they survived and I hope they realise how big a folly they have committed.
