Das neue bewegende Buch vom Autor des Weltbestsellers »Dienstags bei Morrie« – eine Hommage an das Leben und die Liebe zweier Menschen.

Chick Benedetto ist in einer Sackgasse angelangt: Die Ehe mit seiner Frau Catherine zerbricht, seine Tochter kehrt sich völlig von ihm ab, und dann verliert er auch noch seinen Job. Immer tiefer gerät er in einen Sumpf der Verzweiflung, bis er eines Tages den Entschluss fasst, seinem verpfuschten Leben ein Ende zu setzen: Er fährt nach Pepperville Beach, die Stadt seiner Kindheit, und stürzt sich von einem alten Wasserturm. Wie durch ein Wunder überlebt er – und traut seinen Augen nicht, als er plötzlich seiner verstorbenen Mutter Posey gegenübersteht. Jahrelang hatten ihn Schuldgefühle gequält, weil er sie in ihrer letzten Stunde allein gelassen hatte, doch nun gewährt das Schicksal den beiden einen Tag – einen Tag, um all das nachzuholen, was sie ein Leben lang versäumt haben. Und Chick begreift zum ersten Mal, was seine Mutter aus Liebe zu ihm alles auf sich genommen hat …

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another good Albom read An easy quick read from Mitch Albom. Having one more day with someone you've lost and loved is something a lot of people would probably love - not that I think it is possible - but if you could make amends or learn a truth ... but only to lose them all over again ?? Best to live a good life with no humungous regrets, but with people being self destructive and proud, so many aren't capable of living with no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Enlightening This book was seriously one of the best books I have ever read. It is a real eye opener and was incredibly moving and heartwarming. It was so hard to put this novel down, I read it in under 3 hours! Mitch Albom has a beautiful style of writing and this book made me want to read all of his others!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wonderful message but thankfully short Chick Benetto has had a troubled life. His father, in his childhood, had told him to be either a father's or mother's boy and to chose. He chose his father only to have him leave when he was eleven. Chick's mother struggled to raise her son but Chick never really knew her and blamed her for his father's absence. Charley (Chick) has hit the bottom of the barrel with a life of neglect and alcohol. The final straw is being left out of his daughter's wedding. He drives to his hometown to commit suicide but can't even do that right. He goes back to the old house when he once lived to discover his mother who had died eight years ago doing her regular routine. This gives him one more day to right wrongs and understand himself. This is a short story which I found okay. There is a small twist which I didn't suspect and raised the story from ho hum to okay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inspirational This is not the type of book that I typically read, but since it was the second book that my book club chose this month, I thought I would give it a go even though I don’t often read these types of feel-good books. The writing is good, but then I’ve seen reviews for Mitch Albom’s books and know that he is well received. I did like the message….if I only had one more day with someone…. I do know that I’ll be buying this book for my mom for Christmas, I think it's a book she'd like to read. And it’s something I want to share with her to let her know how much I love and appreciate her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read I finished this book in a day or two, and it was amazing. I have purchased all of Mitch's books after reading "have a little faith" and this book truly was amazing, It had me in tears near the end (which never happens) the ending was amazing and caught me off guard which I love! I have told all my friends about this book and if you are thinking about buying it DO IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intriguing Mitch has written another master peace with this book. This book touch home with me on a few points. The first has to do with the death of my father 12 years ago, and about the questions that I would ask him. The second point has to do with is what I would do after the questions has been answered. I found this book to be a very intriguing read and I recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A story of a day we all wish we could have Imagine having one more day with someone you have lost. The philosophical novel, "For One More Day," by Mitch Albom tells the story of Charley "Chick" Benetto, a troubled man at a crossroads in his life who finds himself reunited for one more day with his lost mother. The experience comes at just the right time. Plagued by a failed marriage, troubled career, bad finances and alcohol abuse, Charley returns to his childhood home to end his life. Expecting to walk into a cold and empty abandoned house, he finds the warm home of his childhood, well kept by his mother, who tells him she has been waiting and needs to talk. Together they spend one day together reflecting on key events in Charley's life. The experience helps him gain perspective on his identity, his relationship with both of his parents, his regrets and key events made possible by only a mother's love. Reminded of the love of his mother, Charley is able to gain the strength needed to stand up to life's challenges. And in reading this book, the reader can do the same thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read This book was very unique in style. I haven't quite read a book like it. It is a fantastic light read, with only being 195 Pages. The Storyline keeps you very interested. I find that a person could really relate to this book, It touches on subjects that some of us have felt before, or will feel in our life. This was my first book by Mitch Albom, and after reading this book i can say that i will be picking up other books by him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart Warming Story For One More Day is a story told through Chick Benetto. His life is a mess, he's an alcoholic, wasn't invited to his own daughter's wedding, divorced, and just been fired from his job. So he decides to pack up and travel back to his old empty family home to commit suicide. But on the way there, he gets into an accident and falls into some sort of unconcious dream. Where he returns to his old house and his mother, who is supposed to be dead is welcoming him at the door. Chick Benetto never had the best relationship with his Mom and he gets one more day to understand his mother and appreciate all that she did. Posey, Chick's mother is my favourite character in the book. She loved her family, provided good morals, worked two jobs, and when things were going bad she still managed to put a smile on her face. The story was inspirational. It will really make you appreciate your mother after reading it. It was sad because of all the unfortunate events that happenened to Chick and his mother. This story was very captivating because you were never quite sure where the story was going to take you. Although this was a great book, it was very similar to The Five People You Meet in Heaven. So it was nothing original or new once you have read the other book. Mitch Albom makes the book flow nicely and it's interesting to see how all the elements in the story are connected in someway. It's also good how Mitch Albom goes back in time, and tells stories about Chick as a kid and why his life is the way it is. He's very wise in his writing. It's a great book and if you liked The Five People You Meet in Heaven you're surely like this one even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tugging at your Heart Strings. I normally don't indulge fiction novels but this one captured my heart. It's the type of novel that everyone can relate to in some way or another. The main character Chick has two options but only one choice. It's the type of novel that anyone can relate to and reminisce about. Picture having two choices, but you can only chose one..and in the end, you find out that the choice you made was wrong. It is extremely heartfelt, heartbreaking and compassion. I recommend this book to everyone that enjoys a touching novel. This sure brought tears to my eyes. Congrats to Mitch Albom for being the only novelist to date to make me cry :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An emotional tribute to family bonds, love and forgiveness I was totally absorbed by For One More Day by Mitch Albom, and taken back to a time when I, too, was young and everything seemed innocent, confusing and not always explainable. I highly recommend this read, but be prepared--you'll need a box of Kleenex at your side! Charles `Chick' Benetto has reached the end of his rope, so to speak. He is divorced and has a daughter who won't invite him to her wedding, a father who walked out on the family years ago and a mother who is dead. Chick is a washout as a baseball player and finds solace in one thing--alcohol. Feeling that he has nothing left to live for, nothing to hold onto, he plots his suicide and returns to his family home where he finds it not as empty as it should be. Through his mother's spirit, Chick learns that things weren't always as they seemed. He asks questions about his life, about his father, and is surprised by some of the answers. Some of the conversations are bittersweet and sad, while others will make you laugh. A cross between A Christmas Carol and Ghost, this is a beautifully wrought story that delves into the human psyche and into our yearning to go back and change things...if we had just one more day. For everyone who always wanted to go back in time, take back nasty words or find a sense of understanding, For One More Day is an emotional tribute to family bonds, love and forgiveness. One of Mitch Albom's finest works! This novel is that one last chance to see things as they were...and to make things right. Don't we all wish we had that? ~ Cheryl Kaye Tardif, author of Whale Song

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary! Once again, Albom has proved himself a great author with exceptional ideas and insights. For One More Day opens your eyes to just how important certain people are to you, even if you may not realize it until its too late. While FOMD is a quick read, it is easy to get lost in the story and appreciate every word Albom has written.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Quick, Good Read. What I like about Mitch Albom is that he takes experiences that have happned to him, and turns them into meaningful fiction that are filled with clear messages. "For One More Day" is a touching story about a man who has had rough times and decides to take his life. However, in that place between life and death he meets up with his mother who died years earlier. Through the novel they spend a day together remembering moments from their time together, visiting friends who are near death and revealing secrets wished were told when alive. This is a great, quick read that has many touching moments. If you liked "Tuesdays with Morrie" and/or "The Five People You Meet In Heaven", then pick this up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyable Read I remember I picked up this book after reading "5 People you meet in Heaven" and putting it down thinking "eech--suicide, depressing, sad-nope not for me" but about 1 month later I bought it and really, really enjoyed it. Actually, I liked it better than "Tuesdays with Morrie". Within the first few pages I couldn't put it down and I finished it within 4 days. For anyone who has been touched by suicide and even if they haven't, it's a great book. Far from being sad, it was quite uplifting--explaining why we would feel the way we feel and why parents would do what they did. I really enjoyed this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word... WOW!!! I went to the local chapters to buy "the five people you meet in heaven". They were all sold out (i want hardcover books) I saw this on one of the main stands. I never read a Mitch Albom book before, but i heard good things about his other books so i grabbed it and im so glad i did. I just finished. It was a quick, easy read but packed with emotion. After a few pages i was hooked and around the halfway point i remember wishing it was a much larger book. The closer i got to the end, the more the book came together. The book starts off great and ends even better. I decided to order the other Mitch Albom books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read One of the nicest books I have read. It is so touching as well as inspiring. It is so well written that the story engages all your senses transporting the reader to the main character’s (Charley) world. I believe everyone can identify in his/her own way with Charley and his mother. It is a wonderful book. I strongly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One more day with a loved one! A sweet story about having the opportunity to spend one more day with someone you love that is now gone. This short book will make you laugh and cry as you walk through this day with the main character. from the book-Because there was a ghost involved some may call this a ghost story. But what family doesn’t have a ghost story? Sharing tales of those we’ve lost is how we keep from really losing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've Read in a Long, Long Time! This wonderful little book really made my day! I couldn't put it down once I started reading it! Mitch Albom instantly became one of my favourite writers with this gem of a book! It's about a forlorn man who gets to spend one more day with his deceased mother - he has a chance to 'make things right' with her, and learn about life in the process. Mr. Albom has a wonderful imagination, and he brings hope to others with this book. 5 stars from me!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For One More Day A heart warming story. If you had a chance to spend a day with a lost love one once again, talking about the past, secrets and regrets it would change you. Charley in this story tries to kills himself while he is unconscious he spends a day with his mother. After spending this day with his mother just an average day, Charley changes. Charley got to understand his mother for once. Understand her decisions that he though ruined his life. Learning to forgive himself which in the end was all he needed. *This story I found amazing! It was simple and honest. A lot of the times we take our mothers for granted. But one day we all know we will no longer have that as an option.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review This turned out to be a pretty good book, although I believe it could have been better. I don't deny that Albom is talented (though I haven't read any of his previous works), but I think he lost focus during certain portions of the story. The general premise was excellent ... the first sentence instantly drew me in ... but I felt the characters weren't fully developed. Also, there were times, particularly in the middle of the book, where I was downright bored. I felt that the visits to the elderly friends of his mother were dragged out needlessly, and that Albom should have added more variety (all of the individuals he introduced the reader to, seemed like cardboard cutouts). I understand that he was going for simplicity, but spicing things up a little would have made a world of a difference. I really appreciate the message of the book, and am annoyed by reviewers who suggest that Albom's life was not difficult, and that he shouldn't have been depressed. Those individuals obviously have no understanding of depression or addictions. I applaud Albom for his insight into human life and mental illness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I'm a huge fan of Mitch Albom and his latest book is another winner! After you read this one you will go and hug your mom, dad, grandparent or whomever influenced you in your life. It reminds us all that we sometimes forget to honour those wonderful people in our lives and it's never too late to start! I loved it so much I gave it to my 12 year old son to read and hope that he appreciates it us as much as I do.
Date published: 2006-12-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreck Another facile and derivative book by Mitch Albom, that insufferably sanctimonious guy who brought us "Tuesdays With Morrie". Save yourself an hour and skip the book. Ablom has a knack for taking crashingly obvious pop psychology and convincing a gullible publisher to sell it to an even more gullible public. A cheap feel-good, shallow as a pie pan puff piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A job well done I am always fascinated with the power of books. They lift our spirits, they change our lives and they make us see the world from a different angle. This book is one of the best I have read. It makes you appreciate the need to enjoy every moment of your life with the ones you love. The use of language and the structure of the story put the reader in a unique state of mind. Good job done by Mitch Albom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Captivating! At first, this book took some time to get into. However, once I had a little "alone-time" to sit and really think about what I was reading, it was AMAZING!! I couldn't put it down! I suggest this book to anyone who likes to read about other's stuggles and trials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Close to my Heart Everyone has lost a person they love. I lost my mother 11 years ago. She died suddenly of a heart attack. I was 31 and she was 64. I miss her more everyday and Mitch Albom's book "for one more day" allowed me to dream of what I would do with one more day with my mom. I would never stop hugging her and telling her I love her. Thanks Mitch for a inspiring book.

I lost my mom 6 months ago, and although unlike the character in the book, my mom and I were very close, but it brought back some great memories, and helped me to say goodbye.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For one more...time Mitch Albom knows the way to our smiles... I mean... With this 3rd book he, again, makes us smile and think: "if this was true?!?!?"... this is a book you will either love or hate... you will either laugh or cry... this is a book that will make you wonder where those lost ones are and what they became and what you would tell them if they were by your side. Not so much Albom's story this time, but your own story will translate into this book, you'll see your own face and those of your lost ones....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just As Good As Chicken Soup Is To A Cold......... This book can provide you with peace and warmth that you thought you had lost since entering adulthood.... no matter how old we get... no matter where we are in life... we are children to someone, and even they were people too. Through reading this book I allowed it to take me back into my childhood and reflect on some of my family memories with a whole new perspective. It won't change anything in your past, but perhaps it will remind you that you have one more day... Today.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kept my intrest I have read both tuesdays and morrie and The five people you meet in heaven. Both of those books i could not put down untill they were done. For one more day was written beautifully as all of alboms work is; Except this time it was boring and it dragged on because of those sub chapters within the book. I recomend this book. But i recomend you skip the chapters with italics untill the whole book is over. and read them after because they will discourage you to read on further.
