Compare/contrast to the last book I read.
"Tuesdays with Morrie" is almost impossible to compare to the last book I read, which was "Tweak" by Nic Sheff. Besides the fact that both are non-fiction, they didn't really have much in common. "Tuesdays with Morrie" is an extremely heartfelt book, with a lot of meaning and love. "Tweak" is about the crazy and chaotic life of a drug- addict. Ultimately, it has nothing heartfelt about it and contains almost no love. The main character and author of the book, Nic, is frowned upon due to his addiction. His parents want nothing to do with him. In "Tuesdays with Morrie," the main character, Morrie, is shown almost too much love. The one major thing, and perhaps the only thing that they have in common is the fact that there were lessons learned. Mitch learned numerous lessons, as well as Nic. Also, both of them went on to share their lessons learned throughout books.
