Book Description

Every family is a ghost story ...' As a child, Charley 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 him disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence. Continue

Every family is a ghost story ...' As a child, Charley 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 him disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence. Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been destroyed by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. He hits rock bottom after discovering he won't be invited to his only daughter's wedding. And he decides to take his own life. Charley makes a midnight ride to his small hometown: his final journey. But as he staggers into his old house, he makes an astonishing discovery. His mother - who died eight years earlier - is there, and welcomes Charley home as if nothing had ever happened. What follows is the one seemingly ordinary day so many of us yearn for: a chance to make good with a lost parent, to explain the family secrets and to seek forgiveness.

    原本計畫閱讀《最後14堂星期二的課》,因緣際會的結果反而先看了《再給我一天》。《再給我一天》劇情架構類似《在天堂遇見的五個人》,兩位男主角同樣認為自己的人生毫無意義。男主角在靈界遇到往生的人,了解自己所不知道的內幕,對於以往的人生有了新的看法。兩本書最大的差別在於艾迪最後上天堂,查理從鬼門關走一回,最後還有活下來。《在天堂遇見的五個人》艾迪沒有遇見自己的母親,《再給我一天》母愛是書中的重點,查理的母親帶他「觀落陰」靈界旅遊一天,改變了查理的想法。《再給我一天》有電影,看完電影可以更了解書中的內容 ...(continue)

    For one more day, we will try to be a better man..
    一直都知道"don't take anything for granted"的道理, 但生活總讓我們忘記擁有的這一刻, 就已是最珍貴的..

    我相信他的鬼故事,但我也相信我沒有像他那麼好運可以多擁有一天,還是老話加實在話,把握當下,孝順父母,珍惜生命!

    再給我一天之感動的地方

    2008/3/9心得
    看這本書,沒什麼太大的感覺,一直到後面,他的母親問了他一句:你為什麼要自殺?雖然書中沒有對母親問出這句話的心情做任何描述,但我心中彷彿被什麼東西給擊中了,我彷彿可以感受到母親問出這句話時的傷痛,不曉得是不是因為我也曾有自殺的念頭,所以看到這句話時非常有感覺?除了這段外,其它的劇情,我都覺得沒啥特殊的,還可以啦!

    看過Mitch Albom的所有作品,要說經典絕對是《最後十四堂星期二的課》。
    但是要說最能夠觸動我的心卻是這本《再給我一天》

    這是本我們做孩子的都該看的書。
