If you had the chance to go back and fix what you did wrong in life, would you take it? This book will make you smile. It will make you wistful. It will make you blink back tears of nostalgia. But most of all, it will make you believe in the eternal power of a mother's love.

Excellent for those who have lost a loved one with unresolved issues between them. It allows you to imagine the conversation you might have had IF you had been given the extra time.

Mitch Albom is an author who has a lot to live up to. After such great hits as TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE and THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVNE, I opened my copy of FOR ONE MORE DAY wondering if he'd be able to pull off another winner. The answer, wholeheartedly, is yes.

Albom pays tribute to mothers with the story of Charley "Chick" Benetto, who remembers clearly the words his father told him as a young boy: "You can be a mama's boy or a daddy's boy. But you can't be both."

For most of his life, Chick worked towards being a daddy's boy. Even when his father's love was elusive, it was the one thing he always strove to earn. It wasn't until later that Chick learned, as everyone does, that love not given freely can never be earned, no matter how hard we try.

When Chick's downward spiral leads to an attempted suicide, he's granted the one thing he's always wished for since his mother's death eight years previously--the chance to spend one more day with a mother who always loved him unconditionally, even when he didn't deserve it.

FOR ONE MORE DAY is the story of Chick, but even more so the story of his mother, Posey, a women who sacrificed more, and withstood more heartache, than her children ever knew. And as Chick realizes that he'd made the wrong decision, all those years ago, in becoming a daddy's boy, he's also given the chance to forgive himself, and, ultimately, become a better person.

This is an emotional and heartfelt read, every bit as good as Mr. Albom's previous releases. In recent articles I've read negative comments about the author being "too sentimental" in his writings; all I can say to that is that when sentimentality starts being a crime, we're all in trouble.

Fabulous read! Albom as usual makes us cry and enjoy it at the same time! This is the story of one mans journey...trying to right a wrong...He finds himself at the end of his rope when a miraculous day begins with his dead mother. He begins to unravel his life as he views it from his moms point of view. A must read and reread!

I loved this book. How the main character has ruined his life then suddenly has an experience which leaves him looking at his life in a different way, is very profound to say the least. I have passed this book on to friends who I know will enjoy it as much as I did.

This is a very moving story of family and childhood misconceptions that follow us into adulthood. It is also a story of the power of a mother's love. It is a quick read with some beautiful wisdom. The first page grabs you and doesn't let go. "...every family is a ghost story. The dead sit at our tables long after they have gone." I highly recommend.

This was a good read, a bit on the sad side in typical Mitch Albom fashion. It is about a man with many problems and regrets who tries to end his life. His mother, who has been dead for eight years, helps him forgive himself and put his life back on track, a heartwarming story about a mother's love, proving that you can't really lose your loved ones if they are in your heart.

If given a chance to go back and fix something you did wrong in life would you do it? If you have read other Mitch Albom books you will love this one. If not, read all his books, Tuesdays with Morrie and the Five People you meet in heaven.

I have to say this book is just OK. I've read Tuesday with Morrie which was a very touching book, but this one just kinda falls short. For One More Day is about Chick Benetto, a middle-aged man whose had ups and downs (mostly downs) and has given up on life. He decides to try to end it all, but before he is able to do so, he gets to spend one more day with his deceased mother. He learns much about his life that he didn't know or understand until he sees it from this different perspective, his mother's. It is a nice story with a happy ending. Very quick read.

Another great book by Mitch Albom! A great story about anyone in any town. He has the same thoughts as many of us; I guess that's why we love his books. He reaches out to many people.

This is my second book by the author that I have read. Mr. Albom has a wonderful writing style and easily draws you in. You do not realize it until you look and see just how many pages you have read.

This is a story about choices, the choices that even we as children make and how they can affect things far into our future. It is a rather sad tale of regrets. It is also about family, secrets and divorce.

The main character, Charley Benetto, has reached the end of his last hope in life. As he contemplates suicide, we learn of his childhood and his parents. Once his Dad left, Charley always held a resentment towards his mother, not knowing the reason they divorced.

He ends up back at his childhood home and things become very strange. He has been given a rare gift and it is up to Charley to make of it what he will.

In life, we all sometimes hold grudges but this tale helps one to understand that things are not what they always seem to be to us. Forgiveness and compassion are very important parts as well as unconditional love in everyone's heart and life. I like to think I came away a little bit better person for having read this beautiful story.

Another good Mitch Albom book. His books are short but they sure do say a lot. My heart went out to the mother who tried so hard to provide for her children and was treated like garbage by towns people who couldnt mind their own business and her own son. She never once said anything about her ex husband despite what he did to her. I would recommend this.

One of my book clubs chose this book to read for next month's reading. I grudgingly purchased it and painfully read it. *laugh* Okay, I admit it, I didn't like Tuesdays With Morrie. There. I said it. My problem with For One More Day is that it's so obviously written to evoke emotion that the story seems so secondary to seeing how many Kleenex the author can force you through. It was also SO predictible so instead of grabbing the hankies, I was grabbing for the caffeine. From the first few chapters, I knew the entire story for the most part. Yes, the very last epilogue gives you a little "ohhhhhhhhh..." but still, nothing really death defying going on there either.

I'm glad it was a short book. The main character was dry, the whole concept was too much, and the writing was too wrought with emotion.

Two words sum up this book for me - TOO MUCH.

This book is read by Mitch Albom and I did not like his voice at all. I wouldn't say that he has a lisp but he pronounces words like his tongue is too thick. The story was alright, but the main character is very difficult to like and I couldn't identify with his bad choices so I just wasn't interested in how he learns that he made wrong decisions. This wasn't my cup of tea.

I might be the only person who is brave enough to call this book what it was to me: just like every other Albom book. It was nice, but if you've read one, you don't need to read the others. It was sweet and trite and fabulous for old lady book clubs (which is why I read it in the first place).

Excellent book. Who hasn't thought about their past and ones they have lost and hoped to have just one more day with them.

Chick (main character) is not necessarily a likeable person, but I found myself liking him and rooting for him. Extremely emoitional and I think it is a keeper. Yes - it is a bit similar to Mitch's other books, but if you liked the other ones you will enjoy this too.

NOTE: I have seen the made-for-tv movies on all of his books and I don't think that it does them justice. Read the book - forget the movie!

I read this entire book on my flight home tonight. It is my favorite of Mitch Albom's books. I ws able to relate to it on so many levels. The narrator is about to kill himself because of what his life turned out to be. Growing up he chose his father over his mother (like me) and then unexpectedly, his father walked out on him and his sister and never really looked back.(like me) He ends up being able to spend one more day with his mother (who has since died) and finds out so much about his past that he did not know, and is able to tell her how he felt. Its a great book that brought tears to my eyes, and i think a lot of people will be able to relate to it in different ways.

Awesome book about how he speaks to his mother. I thought I liked Tuesdays with Morrey better but I really could not put this book down. It tells about a baseballs player life from alcoholism to break up of his marriage and loosing touch with his daughter. He ends up in a car accident because of his drinking,depression. In this he is out and speaks to his dead mother reliving his past it gives him a renewed life where he spends time with his daughter and exwife. He ends up with second chances to live a life before he dies from his head injury. Truly a bittersweet story.

This is a small book but not one to rush through, as there is much to ponder. To some it may seem simplistic, but the author is on a quest to tell others what life is all about and each persons relationships to one another. It's not really a religious book, nor is it a preachy book. It's about his own experiences and how the reader can relate to them and to their own.

What an excellent afternoon read! I loved this book! Another true wonder of Mitch Albom in his one and only engrossing style! This story hit home like a ton of bricks when I thought of my own life and family in the same scenario. If anyone has ever lost someone dear to them and after that person is gone they think of what "could have been IF things had been different" on the last day they saw them or the last time they talked to them...I also must say bring the tissues, it is a very heart-rendering, love story of a mother and a son.

I wasn't really impressed by this book. It was a quick read, and it kept me turning pages but I didn't really feel inspired by it. It was pretty obvious what was happening and the characters seemed rather one-dimensional to me.

My favorite parts of the novel were the "Time My Mother Stood Up For Me"/"Times I Didn't Stand Up for My Mother" sections interspersed through the story. There were several humorous stories contained in these, and it was during those points I felt I could most see who the characters were.

The stories that this author unfolds for me are always fascinating. I understand that this one was biographical yet I liked it just as much as others. There were two parts spoken by Charley's mother that will stay with me for a long time: "Trees spend all day looking up to God." "When someone is in your heart they are never truly gone. They can come back to you even at unlikely times."

What would I do if I had one more day with someone I love who is gone? I can only think of my father whose death occurred when I was hundreds of miles away. My only solace is that I was able to help him recover from his first stroke. Yes, I wish I had one more day.

If you could go back and spend one more day with your mom who had passed away--what would you say? Chick had this chance and he did spend one more day with his mom. Things weren't exactley as he thought they were. He got to see a little more what his mom was really feeling and hear her thoughts. This book will make you realize what you might really think is important --isn't. Great book. So very glad i read it.

If you had the chance, just one chance, to go back and Fix what you did wrong in life, would you take it? And if you did, would you be big enough to stand it? Mitch Albom, in this new book, once again demonstrates why he is one of my favorite writers: a fearless explorer of the wishful and magical, he is also a devout believer in the power of love. "For one more Day" will make you smile. It will make you wistful. It will make you blink back tears of nostalgia. But most of all, it will make you believe in the eternal power of a mother's love.

Charley (Chick) Benetto finds himself face to face with his mother after an accident; only she had died years earlier. He spends the day with her, remembering all of the things that she had sacrificed for him over the years and all of the ways that he had hurt her.

This book begs the question: if you had one more day to spend with one you lost, what would you say?

I've decided that Mitch Albom audiobooks are perfect car ride reads! I've read a few of Albom's work and this didn't disappoint. This one is shortish and I think that's just peachy. He has such amazing stories to tell, but they have to be just the right length and Albom knows how to do that.

Hard to believe it's fiction. His wording is realistic and masterfully genius at the same time. Weaving in emotions and patterns, you find yourself asking a question -- but Albom knows you're going to ask that and answers it, in time.

A great piece of work.

This is a typical book of Albom's.. parts of it brought tears to my eyes....only because I wish I could have another day with my Mother. In the beginning the main character is at his lowest, attempts suicide, fails.....

His mother who has been dead for several years shows up....for one more day. The character tries to make up for how he wronged her in the past and wrongs others as a result.

Bottom line of the book: it tries to teach you to treasure the time you have with loved ones and make the most of that time...so you don't have to wish for one more day so you can redeem yourself.

This was a great book; a real tear-jerker.

Charley Benetto has ruined his life. He has become a self-absorbed and distant alcoholic, so much so that his daughter doesn't even invite him to her wedding. Feeling like he has nothing left to live for, Charley drives back to his hometown to end his life, the town where he lived when his father left his mother and his anger towards his mother started. Before he dies though, he sees his mother again, although that's impossible, since his mother died years ago. He is confused, and filled with guilt and shame, but is given one more day with her to correct some of the wrongs from his past and understand more about his mom and her life.
